How can manufacturers significantly improve product quality and process runnability in paper production and converting? This is exactly the question German manufacturer of specialized testing technology, emtec Electronic, addresses at booth 163 at the MIAC 2021 convention in Lucca, Italy from October 13-15.
Leipzig, Germany, 13.09.2021 – After MIAC 2020 was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, technicians of paper mills and converting sites worldwide once again get the opportunity to update their professional knowledge and experience the charm of Tuscany for three days at the MIAC Exhibition in Lucca, Italy. This year, 250 international exhibitors will present new technologies, machinery, and cutting-edge technical solutions for paper and board production and converting to visitors on-site at the Lucca Exhibition Centre.
Visitors to the convention can visit emtec Electronic at Booth 163 to discover more about emtec’s devices, all of which are self-developed and unique on the market. The assortment includes the device that launched the company, the PDA Penetration Dynamics Analyzer, which measures liquid penetration to predict the gluing, printing, and coating behavior of paper and board.
One of emtec’s most recent devices, the ACA Ash Content Analyzer, will be on display at the event. The ACA allows for a quick and reliable determination of the composition of fillers and fines within a sample without destroying the sample. This process leads to an immense time-saving compared to traditional combustion methods.
In addition, the CAS touch! and FPA touch! will be on location and available for demonstrations. The latter two are improved and more easily portable versions of the original one-of-a-kind testing technology, the Charge Analyzing System and Fiber Potential Analyzer.
Using standard titration techniques, the CAS touch! technology allows technicians to measure the cationic/anionic and acid/base demands of water-based charge systems, easily determine isoelectric and flocculation points of a sample and examine the correlation between pH, titrant demand and streaming potential. The FPA touch! enables the correct dosage of chemically charged additives by providing accurate information regarding the charge of fibers and fillers in a sample based on proven methods of Zeta Potential measurement.
One emtec device not on display due to its size but with video and informational material readily available is the FPO, the Fiber Potential Analyzer Online, which has the added benefit of being connected directly to the process and is so able to constantly monitor the fiber charge, allowing for immediate changes to be made if necessary.
“We’re excited to participate in the MIAC event again this year after last year’s hiatus, and are looking forward to lively discussions and demonstrations with visitors, as well as meeting up with our Italian representatives once more,” says Alexander Gruener, Global Marketing and Business Development Manager for emtec.
Visitors are welcome to stop by the emtec Booth 163 to view the entire emtec palette, exchange ideas, ask questions, see a demonstration of the devices, get their own samples tested onsite, or simply clink glasses with the representatives.

Some events need to be celebrated. Replus Tissue and EIL have the opportunity to present you a renovation plan of Cartiera Capostrada with which we have been collaborating for several years.
This year they are celebrating their 70th birthday: a perfect opportunity to rebuild and reface their plant to honor heritage while looking at a better future for the environment.
Our project was born with the aim of optimizing production, while maintaining great attention to environmental protection. Since many years we have greatly strengthened our partnership, and now we see a new challenge.
Aimed at the environment, safeguarding the planet from toxic emissions is a shared value between our companies. They decide to enhancing production while guaranteeing eco-sustainability.
We are happy to announce the main changes we have planned. Our work for the Capostrada paper mill has always been aimed at energy efficiency and low emission.
To enhance this effort, we have implemented a plant modernization project. The aim is to optimize operating costs, exploiting the production process and reducing toxic emissions more than ever.
This project is based on engineering that that synergistically combines software and hardware. Our experience in mechanics, aerothermia, automation and electrification allowed the building of plants, designed on the specific needs of every individual customer.
We’ll guarantee not only cost saving but also environmental sustainability, in a way of greater production efficiency. For this reason we have thought of a series of innovative REENERGY+ products, able to improve the performance of the system. Our attention to energy efficiency has pushed us to achieve great goals.
The cast iron Yankee dryer will be replaced with a state-of-the-art steel one having a very high heat transfer capacity. The combustion chamber has been designed to guarantee Nox < 20ppm and Co <10ppm at 15°. The new hood has been designed for blowing air at 700° C and will work at 650° C.
The old boiler will be replaced with an innovative recovery one, which exploit the exhaust air from the hood. The energy that would be dispersed in the atmosphere is recovered and used to produce the steam for the Yankee.
A complete new Yankee doctoring system will improve sheet quality and paper machine production efficiency.
What a great value for Replus Tissue and Cartiera Capostrada partnership.
We guarantee the complete turnkey installation of all elements and specialized assistance for starting up of the system in a few weeks. We have big projects to improve environment safety.
There are all the conditions for a switch.
And now who stops us anymore?
We wish to inform you that EDIPAP S.R.L., the MIAC Organizer, has decided, after recent consultations with companies in the paper industry sector, to postpone the October 2020 edition of the MIAC Exhibition to April 2021 on 21.22.23 April 2021. The April 2021 edition takes the official name of MIAC RESTART.
"It was a difficult decision, especially because MIAC still had 160 direct Exhibitors ready to exhibit at the exhibition in October 2020. Furthermore, during the last months we have worked to offer both Exhibitors and Visitors a safe environment and fully in line with governmental, regional and local directives in terms of personal safety and health," says Gianmaria Pfeiffer, director of MIAC.
"We have studied very specific protocols to allow people to visit the MIAC Exhibition in a responsible way and in total safety and we have waited for the month of September to make a final decision by evaluating the Covid-19 situation: organizing the exhibition this October, however, would not have guaranteed the Exhibitors and Visitors to 'experience' the MIAC that we all know due to travel restrictions on an international level," continues Pfeiffer," and so we decided to move the exhibition to April 2021 waiting for better times."
MIAC 2020 then becomes MIAC RESTART and is organized on 21.22.23 April 2021 at the Exhibition Centre of Lucca in Italy.
MIAC 2021, on the other hand, remains scheduled in the usual month of October and is organized on 13.14.15 October 2021.
The issue of which materials should be used for packaging is becoming increasingly important. Consumers are also paying more and more attention to how environmentally friendly the packaging used for paper hygiene products is. Amotek offers packaging technology for a wide variety of materials including PE film, biofilm and paper, and is providing information on the new, environmentally friendly options at MIAC. The AMOTEK PB192 means that the company is also able to present a highly flexible packaging machine for rolls of paper tissue that significantly reduces the consumption of both electricity and compressed air. For this trade show, Amotek's slogan is "Smart Packaging gets Green".
The AMOTEK PB192 is the new flagship model for packaging rolls of paper tissue in film. Two versions are available: With the AMOTEK PB192 FLEX, the focus is on a particularly large range of formats and rapid changes in format. The AMOTEK PB192 DUAL offers the highest output while taking up less space, with up to 150 packs per minute. As well as the new PB range, there are several tools that are currently helping Amotek's customers manage their production more effectively in the age of industry 4.0. Improvements have also been made in monitoring and consumption, and can now be used successfully on all Amotek baggers.
Reduced consumption of electricity and compressed air
The system features innovations that significantly reduce the consumption of electricity and compressed air. Servomotors that can recover or save energy during braking and stop phases make a key contribution here. At the same time, a new pneumatic system has been developed that reduces compressed air consumption by around 16 percent, compared to conventional machines. The consumption of energy and compressed air is continuously measured and displayed in real time. If there is any loss of compressed air, this is quickly detected and displayed on the HMI.
The AMOTEK PB192 records all process data and machine functions and displays them on a big new high-resolution monitor. This allows any malfunctions to be pinpointed more quickly. The data can also be used to set up a maintenance system that can alert the operator to upcoming maintenance work early on and allow it to be planned more efficiently.
