The remarkably smooth cooperation between Voith and Fujian Liansheng Paper Industry resulted in planned daily production being reached less than two months after start-up. Furthermore, daily production has continued to exceed expectations.

With a 7,300 mm wire width and 1,100 m/min design speed, the Liansheng BM 8 produces White Lined Chipboard in a basis weight range of 200 to 450 g/m² and coated White Top Testliner from 175 to 200 g/m². The yearly production will reach 700,000 tons.

With the advantage of Voith’s DF Coat curtain coating technology, which allows that virgin fibers can be replaced by secondary fibers for the coating layer, the BM 8 can produce board and packaging paper grades from 100% secondary fibers. This will help to achieve Fujian Liansheng Industry’s aims for recycling, resource conservation and sustainable development. At the same time, Voith has improved production properties so that whiteness and optical properties can be optimized as required with a much smoother surface.

Voith also delivered an automation package including the Machine Control System (MCS) and the Quality Control System (QCS). Also included in the scope of supply after start-up were fabrics, services for training, and technological support.

The Fujian Liansheng Paper Industry Co., Ltd. was founded in 2005 and is located in Fujian, China. The paper manufacturer produces 2,000,000 tons of board and different paper grades annually for the Chinese market.

Voith has brought to market a new screen element for the screw press. SplitScreen is the first screen element consisting of a supporting structure and a screen plate, enabling maintenance and inspection time to be significantly reduced compared with conventional cylindrical screen baskets. In addition, investment costs over the lifetime of the screw press are much lower than for conventional screen elements.

SplitScreen comprises a split supporting body with two removable screen plates instead of one cylindrical basket. This design enables direct access to the individual screw press components without having to dismantle it completely. Whereas with previous technologies the entire press screw including screen baskets had to be lifted out using an indoor crane to get to the cylindrical screen elements, SplitScreen allows the top half of the SplitScreen to be disconnected after lifting the hood to check the condition of the plate. If the screen plate, which is a wearing part, does actually need to be replaced the lower half can also simply be turned to the top. This then gives easy access to exchange the upper and lower screen plates. At the same time this makes the press screw accessible for inspection.

With SplitScreen, the time necessary for replacing a screen element is only three to four hours instead of the average 24 to 48 hours that were previously needed. Moreover, procurement costs can be cut up to 40 percent per year after first installation, as in the event of wear only the screen plate and not the entire SplitScreen has to be changed. The large, open design of the screen area also helps improve the dewatering efficiency of the screw press.

SplitScreen is a standard feature of Voith's new InfiltraScrewpress. All conventional screen elements of Voith’s Thune screw press as well as screw presses from other manufacturers can be converted to SplitScreen.

The new screen element has already been successfully installed more than a dozen times worldwide and has also been retrofitted to conventional screw presses six times to date. The product is proving effective in the field and customers that have installed SplitScreen are very satisfied with its performance.

Voith Paper plans to bundle European activities

voith logo 2013The significantly reduced market volume for new machines and major rebuilds has resulted in a difficult situation at Voith Paper, especially in the projects business. With this in mind, the Management Board of Voith Paper today presented a plan for a package of measures, which is intended to adapt the company's European structure to the market conditions.

  • Long-term diminished market volume for new machines and major rebuilds
  • Concentration of the paper machine business in Heidenheim and stock preparation in Ravensburg planned
  • Goal is a lean, customer-focused organization
  • Planned reduction of approximately 1,000 jobs worldwide

“The market volume for new systems has shrunk in half. This is going to stay that way, which means that revenues from this market will not be coming back,” says Voith Paper CEO Bertram Staudenmaier. “The consequences for our new machines and rebuilds business are significant. In this much smaller market, we are faced with strong competition and price pressure. The decline in order volume in recent years has had a very strong effect on capacity utilization, sales, and profits. Therefore, we must adapt to the changed market conditions.”

Planned is a bundling of the European paper machine business in the Heidenheim location and the stock preparation activities in Ravensburg. This will be accompanied by the termination of the paper activities in St. Pölten, Austria (reduction of approximately 150 jobs) as well as the closure of the locations in Krefeld and Neuwied (with a reduction of approximately 200 jobs and a transfer of remaining activities to Heidenheim). Also planned is an adjustment of the capacities in Ravensburg (reduction of approximately 150 jobs) with a closure of the manufacturing currently located there. In the future, the Ravensburg location will be operated exclusively as a competence center for stock preparation and roll services. Also planned is a reduction of approximately 300 jobs at the Heidenheim location, which will also affect employees in manufacturing. Overall, the package of measures plans a global reduction of around 1,000 jobs at Voith Paper.

“This step is painful for everyone involved, but necessary in order for us to become a lean organization, especially in our projects business in Europe. We must be appropriate to the market volume and oriented towards the needs of our customers,” explains Bertram Staudenmaier.  

The Management Board today informed the boards and employees of the affected locations about the plans. In the next step, Voith will hold discussions with the workers' representatives about the implementation of the reduction. The current plan expects the measures to be largely implemented by December 31, 2015.

DuoDry CC, the innovative drying concept from Voith, is for the first time successfully in operation. The DuoDry CC is delivered and installed in the Narew PM 5 at Stora Enso in Ostroleka, Poland. The concept impresses with its reduced curl formation caused by the drying process and lowers energy demand by increased runability of the paper machine.

2014-11-07 090003

CC stands for curl control and designates the latest technology for reducing curl in single-tier dryer sections, which have become especially popular on the market since the speeds of paper machines have increased. The advantage of single-tier design when compared to the two-tiered design is that the machine achieves improved runability. However, a disadvantage of the conventional single-tier design is that the paper tends to curl due to the one-sided drying.

DuoDry CC solves this problem with a smart concept that is as effective as it is simple – a vertically inverted single-tier dryer group that serves as the last group. Normally the paper web is sprayed with water on one side to fight curl. The web is dried again afterward through additional energy input. With DuoDry CC, by contrast, the thermal energy already required for drying the paper web is utilized by being fed into the inverted dryer group from the other side. Thus no additional energy is required for reducing curl. Use of this technology reduces the operating costs of the paper machine. The components used, such as web stabilizers and dryer cylinders, are products that have long been proven, which ensures the reliability of the system in operation.

Janne Myllykangas, PM area manager at Stora Enso, confirmed after the project was finalized: “The collaboration with Voith was very good. The trust formed during the negotiations has been confirmed in the execution. The decision in favor of the DuoDry CC drying system has also proved to be the right one. We are very satisfied with the performance of DuoDry CC in operation.”

The Narew PM 5 from Voith is equipped with a SpeedSizer and produces 455,000 metric tons of testliner and corrugating medium per year on a wire width of 8,600 mm.

voith logo 2013With Jade from the CleanWeave product line, Voith is bringing innovative dryer fabrics onto the market that translate reduced contamination to increased drying capacity due to their special design.

Jade dryer fabrics have minimal internal void volume and so carry significantly fewer deposits than conventional dryer fabrics. The high number of contact points and the flat yarns facilitate effective heat transfer and paper sheet handling. The compactness of the fabric structure makes both manual cleaning as well as on-line cleaning systems such as DuoCleaner Express from Voith more effective.

The SynStron yarn material used in Jade makes the dryer fabric especially effective in resisting fibrilation and so facilitates easy cleaning. Synstron is used in the entire CleanWeave product line and is noticeably more effective than conventional polyester yarns in resisting abrasion.

JadeHigh expands the product line with a more open surface ensuring stronger air flows for increased evaporation. Like all dryer fabrics in the CleanWeave product line, Jade and JadeHigh show measurable differences in their ability to maintain an easy clean structure which contribute to a more efficient drying process.

Voith Paper awarded for Energy-Efficient Construction – Kunshan receives Energy Master Award

voith logo 2013Voith has ranked second and has been given the Energy Master Award 2014 in the category "Overall Concept" awarded by the Berlin management network econique. Voith receives the prize for a new hall at its Kunshan production site in China, which was built with a strong focus on energy-efficient construction.

The new Voith hall is economical and preserves energy and resources: about 98 percent of the waste generated during the construction is recycled; an energy-efficient combined heat and power plant generates a large proportion of the required electricity from clean natural gas. The waste heat of the thermal power station is used for providing the essential process cooling through an absorption refrigerator. Compared with conventional construction schemes, the energy concept of the hall saves about EUR 2.3 million per year and reduces the contribution to global warming by an annual 7,800 tons of CO2. A modern small car would be able to drive around the world nearly 2,000 times with this amount.

As one of the very few industrial buildings in China the new building has already been awarded with the sustainability certification in gold of the LEED standard for green building design.
