The scope of supply included a modification of the existing Fourdrinier tissue machine into a MODULO Crescent Former with a new TT Headbox-SLT. The delivery also included a rebuild of the existing approach flow system and of the felt run, as well as the YD doctoring system. In 2006 Toscotec had already supplied a new TT SYD to the mill.

The rebuild boosted the machine speed to 650 mpm, for the production of high-quality tissue mainly from waste paper, produced by the extensive printing operations of Novus Holding, one of the most technologically advanced print manufacturing operations in Africa. Complete engineering, erection, commissioning, training service and start-up assistance were also included in the order.

“We are glad to partner with such an important tissue producer. Our technology turned out to be the right solution for the customer’s need.” said Marco Dalle Piagge, Sales Director of Toscotec S.p.A.

Conrad Rademeyer, Group Executive, stated: “We are now ready to deal with new market challenges and we are looking forward to achieve great and new results in terms of productivity as well as in terms of machine performance. The new machine will give us the flexibility we need to get a competitive advantage in the market.”
