On 11 November 2022, Toscotec started up two tissue machine rebuilds at the production facilities of two major producers in North and South America. On both projects, the scope of the modifications was extensive, covering the wet and dry sections of the two lines. The tight periods of machine stops have been executed according to schedule.
In the words of Mr. Andrea Paganucci, Project Manager, “One of the most challenging aspects on this large rebuild was the integration of Toscotec’s key components with the existing equipment. Creating an effective interface between different systems requires strong multi-stakeholder coordination. We are happy that the machine is now running efficiently as expected.”
About the rebuild projects, Mr. Flavio D’Orlando, Site Manager, says, “After the rebuild, the machine started producing sellable paper right away. We are now fine-tuning the new equipment, which is already meeting the mill’s product quality requirements. The on-site operations, including dismantling, erection, commissioning, and start-up, all went very smoothly.”
