In the spring of 2012, Bank Note Paper Mill India commissioned Voith to supply two bank note paper machines to Mysore, India. The project involves two entire production lines, including all machine clothing. Each of the two machines has a wire width of 2,800 mm and produces high-quality bank note paper with a basis weight of 90 gsm. The annual production capacity per machine is 6,000 metric tons.
In 2010, Voith had already received an order to supply an entire bank note paper machine from the Indian manufacturer SPMCIL in Hoshangabad. Together with the two recently ordered production lines, these three machines will be able to cover the current need for bank notes in India.
Voith is the leading supplier when it comes to bank note paper machines. Bank note paper has to meet high quality and security requirements. Accordingly, the machines on which this special paper is made are usually adapted to the respective conditions of the individual countries.
