NEW FILM PRESS AND TWIN SOFT NIP CALENDER INSTALATION

During 2014 Papelera del Oria made two investments in their paper machine with German constructor Voith:

  • In January 2014, a new Duoformer D was installed which contributed to a much improved formation of the paper.
  • In April 2014, the conversion from a hard nip calender to a soft nip calendar, improved the surface properties and printability of the paper.

As a consequence, new paper grades were developed in the interim, including paper for shopping bags, and this subsequently contributed to increase global sales for Oria.
