has recently started up a new tissue rewinder TT WIND-P supplied by the Italian machinery producer Toscotec at their facility in Laval sur Vologne – France.
The model WIND-P features 2 unwind stands and handles parent rolls of 2900 mm width and 2600 mm diameter at the maximum speed of 1400 mpm. Toscotec’s machinery is equipped with a slitting unit of 150 mm min width, automatic control of all unwinding and rewinding operations and sectional drive system.
The new "state-of-the-art" rewinder serves the PM9 tissue machine and represents another important collaboration between Lucart and Toscotec after the rebuilding of PM10 in late 2016.
Lucart’s sas President Mr. Alessandro Pasquini declared: “Toscotec has been working with us since 2008. They have grown to become a strong partner for Lucart and we are now cooperating on a number of interesting projects. This new rewinder at Laval sur Vologne mill has been performing well and meets our expectations.”
Lucart’s history goes back to the 1930s when the Pasquini family decided to set up a papermaking factory in Villa Basilica (Lucca). Today the Group’s total production capacity is over 300,000 tons/year with 10 paper machines and 58 converting lines.
