Voith Paper, world leader in innovation for the paper industry, completed the successful start-up of the TM 6 XcelLine machine at SEPAC, a company headquartered in the Brazilian state of Paraná that is among the country’s five largest manufacturers of tissue paper for sanitary purpose. Installed in the company’s Mallet plant in Paraná, the TM 6 machine went into service at the end of 2017 and produced paper within the necessary quality specifications from the very first day. The machine is capable of producing nearly 110 metric tons of paper per day and has a design speed of 2,000 meters per minute.

2016 09 22 073412Voith’s scope of supply covered the entire tissue machine, which was fitted with a MasterJet Pro T headbox, a CrescentFormer, a NipcoFlex T shoe press, an EvoDry Y steel Yankee cylinder, a high-efficiency EcoHood T hood and a MasterReel winder. The project also included the ancillary systems, automation systems, as well as installation supervision, commissioning and complete start-up assistance.

The project’s main features are the NipcoFlex T shoe press and its 4.8 meter steel Yankee cylinder, which besides ensuring greater speed and quality, enables SEPAC’s machine to consume up to 20 percent less thermal energy.

The project is part of the growth strategy pursued by SEPAC, a company focused on manufacturing tissue paper from virgin cellulose fibers, and will increase its annual production capacity to approximately 180,000 tons, making it one of the country’s largest tissue manufacturers. SEPAC’s growth strategy began in 2007, with the purchase of its TM 3 from Voith. Over the last ten years, Voith has supplied four tissue machines to SEPAC – a clear demonstration of the successful partnership built on trust and respect that the companies have developed over the period.

Toscotec’s new Prodergy tissue machine fires up at APP Group’s Perawang mill, in Indonesia. This start-up is part of a major APP order of Toscotec’s Prodergy machines, to be installed at APP Indonesian paper mills.

2018 04 13 091409

PRODERGY is Toscotec’s leading innovation: an AHEAD-2.0L tissue machine, 5.6 m width, 2,000 m/min operating speed, featuring a second generation TT SYD-22FT and steam-heated hoods. Toscotec’s 22 ft diameter steel Yankee dryer constitutes a world record: the biggest steel Yankee dryer ever manufactured worldwide for tissue application. This breakthrough equips Toscotec with a significant advantage in terms of technological innovation. Prodergy’s unprecedented drying efficiency is threefold, combining the benefits of the largest diameter TT SYD ever delivered worldwide, an efficient press configuration and steam-heated Yankee hoods. Each element of Prodergy’s drying equation contributes to the best possible energy efficiency of the tissue making process. The exclusive use of steam energy throughout the entire drying process ensures significant cost reduction compared with gas energy drying. The design of the TT SYD 22ft and the steam-heated Yankee hood system with multiple energy recovery stages deliver the highest dryness rate with minimum consumptions. The press configuration guarantees the highest possible degree of mechanical dewatering before entering the energy-based drying section of the AHEAD-2.0L.

Toscotec’s Sales Director Marco Dalle Piagge affirmed, “We are extremely proud of this incredible achievement. The first 22 ft TT SYD ever manufactured and delivered worldwide, and installed on a top performance tissue making line. We are making history and we expect Prodergy to set a new record for energy efficiency in tissue”.

Wood fiber costs for hardwood pulp manufacturers in Sweden are among the lowest in Europe after having been on a downward trajectory since 2011, according to the Wood Resource Quarterly. However, in late 2017 this trend reversed because of tighter log supply resulting from unfavorable logging and transportation conditions.

WoodPricesHeaderHardwood pulp manufacturers in Europe have some of the highest wood fiber costs in the world despite prices for hardwood pulplogs having trended downward in most key markets on the continent over the past five years. In the second half of 2017, that trend reversed, with fiber prices going up in both the local currencies and in US dollar terms.

In the 4Q/17, prices for hardwood logs in Spain were the highest on the continent, while Swedish prices were on the lower end of the hardwood cost spectrum, according to the Wood Resource Quarterly.

Hardwood fiber supply in Sweden tightened in late 2017 because of an unusually wet and mild early winter season. Tight supply in central Sweden resulted in an odd importation of Eucalyptus chips from Brazil during the 4Q/17 at a reported price that was substantially higher than the domestic hardwood prices. Prices for hardwood pulplogs trended upward during most of 2017 after they reached an 11-year low in the 4Q/16. Despite the recent price rise, birch pulplog costs were in the 4Q/17 about 15% lower than their 10-year average in US dollar terms.

Prices for softwood chips and pulplogs were also up in Sweden during 2017 because of an imbalance between domestic supply and demand. The higher domestic fiber prices resulted an increase in importation of softwood chip to Sweden in 2017, reaching almost double the volume imported five years ago. The imports in the 4Q/17 were the second highest quarterly volume on record.

Historically, most imported chips have been destined for the country’s pulpmills, but over the past two years there has been an increase in imported chips to be used for energy. Latvia, Norway, Estonia and Finland, in ranking order, are the major suppliers of softwood chips,

accounting for 95% of the total import volume in 2017. With a higher percentage of lower- cost energy chips over the past few years (predominantly from Norway), the average value for imported chips has declined by about 40% 2013 to 2017, reports the WRQ in its latest issue. Of the four major supplying countries, Finland supplied the highest cost chips, while Norway was the lowest cost supplier in 2017.

Global lumber, sawlog and pulpwood market reporting is included in the 56-page quarterly publication Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ). The report, which was established in 1988 and has subscribers in over 30 countries, tracks sawlog, pulpwood, wood chip, lumber and pellet prices, trade and market developments in most key regions around the world.

Retail is alive and well. Despite doom and gloom from mainstream media, a recent study by the IHL Group reported retailers were opening 4,080 more stores in 2017 than they were closing, and planned to open over 5,500 more this year. The National Retail Federation reported 85% of brands were opening stores or holding steady. The once negative retail narrative is turning a corner. 

In fact, many see a retail revolution evolving, with studies showing that Gen Z’s prefer bricks to clicks. In a highly competitive retail market, brands that succeed will be those that create extraordinary customer experience, both online and in-store. 

2018 04 11 112808In light of this exciting trend, Neenah has released CLASSIC® Retail Revolution, a resource for designers working with retail clients to help them see new and unique ways to use printed pieces as a tangible element of today’s retail experiences.

“Today’s consumer is fiercely loyal and shares their brand love with the world through social media. In order for a brand to impress potential loyalists, it must first grab their attention in the crowded retail space….details matter,” says Auburne Gahlman, Brand Manager, Neenah, “This is precisely where design and paper can help elevate a brand’s status with high-touch tools.”

The book isn’t just eye candy; its thought-provoking stats are good bookmarks for designers. For example, research shows 57% of people say postcard marketing makes them feel more valued and creates a more authentic relationship. 44% say a gift card has sent them into a store they otherwise wouldn’t have visited. “CLASSIC Retail Revolution will enable designers to provide more insight and perhaps be an even more valuable counselor for their retail clients,” says Gahlman.

Designed by Dallas-based creative firm Matchbox Studio, the piece features four case studies of four distinct brands in the growing health and wellness markets. Thoughtfully designed print collateral demonstrates ways to get customers in the door, engage and excite customers in-store, help spread the word, and help brands build a following. Each brand features samples produced on CLASSIC® Papers.

Apparel: Knetics, a dynamic athletic brand uses an oversized postcard and a gift card in a creative die-cut carrier to get attention. A grommeted hangtag combines three different shapes, three different papers and movement to deliver this brand’s active messaging.

Skincare: Pack Apothecary is a men’s line. This brand sample includes a box for its coal facial exfoliant, which cleverly uses the texture of CLASSIC® Stipple to suggest the product within.

Resort: Desert Mothers Spa appeals to the desire to combine decadence with spirit, mind and body wellness. Its brochure is a geometric, accordion fold that uses the appeal of natural visuals with the texture of CLASSIC CREST® Classic Natural White.

Food subscriptions: Odyssey delivers on the luxury side of the home meal kit trend. The pairing of CLASSIC® Linen, photography and blind embossing create an elegant presentation. 

The 10 x 12 red Wire-o bound book with a dozen pull-out, standalone samples feature beautiful combinations of texture, color, design, and print on Neenah’s iconic CLASSIC® Papers: CLASSIC CREST®, CLASSIC® Linen, CLASSIC® Laid, CLASSIC COLUMNS®, CLASSIC® Stipple, and the newest highly-textural additions to the line CLASSIC® Techweave, and CLASSIC® Woodgrain Papers.

Matchbox Design’s Principal/Creative Director, Liz Burnett said, “When it comes to brand recall, paper is an important aspect of any design. Studies show that 70% of purchase decisions are made in the store, and 85% of consumers cite color as the primary reason they buy a particular product.”

“What we hoped to communicate with this piece is that a paper’s texture and color has the power of persuasion. CLASSIC® Retail Revolution shows how much more memorable printed collateral can be with the right combination of design and paper,” added Burnett.
