International technology Group ANDRITZ has officially launched its new tissue machine for textured tissue, the “PrimeLineTEX”, enabling customers to produce textured tissue of a quality superior to dry crepe and very close to structured (TAD) tissue, while at the same time achieving significant cost savings.
PrimeLineTEX is available with widths of 5.6 or 2.8 m and produces high-quality tissue for towel and sanitary applications. The machine offers up to 25% fiber savings compared to dry crepe and consumes up to 50% less energy than a TAD machine. The PrimeLine TEX is substantially shorter in length than other market solutions and uses only one additional fabric instead of two. Furthermore, the PrimeLineTEX machine can switch between production of textured and dry crepe tissue within a much shorter time than comparable solutions.
As a turnkey supplier, ANDRITZ can offer the complete textured tissue production line, including stock preparation, pumps, and the automation system.
“Our new PrimeLineTEX tissue machine enables customers to produce high-quality tissue close to TAD but with substantially reduced investment and operating costs. It is available to all markets worldwide, without any restrictions. This new machine offers profitable advantages for our customers,” says Klaus Blechinger, Vice President Tissue at ANDRITZ.
PrimeLineTEX – FEEL THE DIFFERENCE
The ANDRITZ tissue pilot plant in Graz, Austria – the PrimeLineTIAC – is currently configured as a PrimeLineTEX machine and now offers customers the opportunity to test and develop their future textured tissue. The first paper samples will be available during the Tissue World Milan trade show from March 25 to 27, 2019 at the ANDRITZ booth, F680.
With the new PrimeLineTEX machine, ANDRITZ once again confirms its strong position as one of the global market leaders for the supply of complete tissue production lines and the right partner for innovative solutions.
