With Papermaking 4.0, Voith is introducing its networked solutions to increase the efficiency, productivity and quality of the entire paper production process supply chain. In addition, Voith will be showcasing NipcoFlex T, a shoe press developed to reduce energy con-sumption and raw material in tissue production. At Tissue World, which is taking place in New Orleans from March 15 to 17, trade visitors will find Voith at stand E 240.

Systems like OnCare and OnEfficiency are solutions that stem from the new Papermaking 4.0 concept. OnCare facilitates the maintenance management of paper machines, from planning, servicing and documenta-tion through cost control to spare parts management. The permanent monitoring of the entire paper machine allows optimization potentials to be identified and preventive maintenance measures to be planned and implemented. Preventive maintenance reduces unscheduled downtimes and the paper machine’s availability will increase. Unlike conventional software solutions, OnCare represents a complete maintenance concept, with the distinctive feature being that data are already embedded in the software system. Likewise, it is possible to integrate OnCare in existing systems.
In addition, Voith also developed OnEfficiency to maximize the paper ma-chine’s potential. OnEfficiency Forming gets right to the process at the heart of papermaking: sheet formation. This is measured and analyzed with a package of sensors so that dewatering, retention and flocculation can be stabilized and at the same time coordinated. As a result of the sta-ble process, raw materials and chemicals can be saved and energy usage reduced. Voith is a specialist in the entire paper manufacturing process and ensures that its customers benefit from a dependable documentation of practical experience in papermaking process management.
The increase in machine efficiency and improvement of paper quality are also at the core of the NipcoFlex T. At various paper mills, the innovative shoe press from Voith has already demonstrated that it can increase productivity and reduce costs. NipcoFlex T offers the benefits of up to 5% higher dry content, representing up to 20% thermal energy savings or up to 20% higher production, while maintaining the same or better paper quality. The production parameters of the press can be monitored online and re-adjusted if necessary.
Alfredo Sarli, Sales Manager at Voith Paper Air Systems, will be providing further insights into the latest work on tissue papers in his presentation “Energy Optimization of the Yankee Dryer Hood” to be held at 9:10 am on March 16, 2016 at the conference running alongside Tissue World.
