Tissue machinery supplier Toscotec has announced two major rebuild projects in Western Europe and Africa.

The confidential projects are for a leading manufacturer on a turnkey basis and are  scheduled for completion in 2021. 

For the project in Europe, the company will supply the tissue machine’s broke line and pope reel section, as well as its OPTIMA slitter rewinder.  

The scope of supply in Africa includes a modification into crescent former configuration, which will replace the existing machine’s forming and felt sections. 

Gabriele Romanini, Toscotec Sales Manager, said: “Today we are still seeing an untapped potential for rebuilds, with producers looking into increasing the efficiency of their older machines.”
