Ariete S.r.l., Italian company producing high quality tissue paper, has ordered a new MODULO-PLUS machine from Toscotec for its paper mill in Cava dei Tirreni (Salerno), Italy.

The new tissue machine replaces the exiting one and startup is scheduled for July 2017.

All the dismantling and assembly operations will be performed and synchronized in order to minimize the mill’s downtime. The scope of the supply includes a
MODULO-PLUS in Crescent Former configuration with single-layer headbox.

Approach flow, electrical and control systems together with dismantling of the existing machine and installation of the new one, supervision and assistance for startup will all be performed by Toscotec.

Ariete S.r.l. has been working in the field of tissue paper since 1965, manufacturing qualitatively high standard products capable of meeting the different and changing demands of the market.

The paper mill, headquartered in Italy in Cava dei Tirreni (Salerno), spans along a property of 14,000 m2 and has a production capacity of 22,000 tons/year. The company offers its customer a wide range of semi-finished products for hygienic use and for use in the food industry, with productions that vary from 15 gr/m2 to 38 gr/m2 and from 1 to 4 plies of pure cellulose. Traditionally oriented towards innovation and quality in full respect of people and of the environment, Ariete has decided to make this investment pursuant to a new strategy focused on maximizing efficiency.

Toscotec’s offer turned out to be the best on a technological level and the most suitable to our needs. To be competitive on the market, we must have the proper instruments: we are convinced that the new MODULO-PLUS is the technical solution that we were looking for and that will allow us to increment quantity and quality”, states Nicola Salsano, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Ariete S.r.l.

Toscotec has received in total 8 (eight) Tissue Machine order from APP. Two of the Tissue Machines are scheduled to come on stream in Q4 2017 and Q1 2018, respectively. In the meantime, the Italian supplier is manufacturing other 6 tissue machines which are planned for delivery between the Q3 2017 and the first half of 2018. Each tissue machine is capable of producing, among other tissue grades, 300 tpd or about 100,000 tpa of high gsm tissue.

2017 04 04 082915

Based on a continued strategic expansion, APP has decided to choose Toscotec’s state of the art technology, with the objective of using the most “green solution” available on the market and reducing energy costs. The scope of supply of this major order  includes AHEAD-2.0L crescent former tissue machines, with a net trim width of 5.6m, 22 FT diameter Steel Yankee Dryer TT SYD-22FT and Steam Heated Yankee Hoods.

This is Toscotec’s most recent innovation, PRODERGY, a new concept developed from the Company’s successful line, the AHEAD-2.0, which significantly boosts production and cuts down on the energy costs. In fact, PRODERGY is the 1st tissue machine to combine top production performance and top product quality, with energy efficiency. Its unique configuration of the drying section has taken tissue technology to a whole new level and has set new records for the industry. The first record to be broken is the diameter of the Steel Yankee: 22 feet, the largest Steel Yankee Dryer ever built for tissue production. The second record pertains to the speed, and therefore to the production output, as Prodergy is the first tissue machine relying on steam energy only that can achieve a maximum operation speed of 2000 m/min. These features make Prodergy the most green cutting-edge technology available on the tissue market nowadays. Its use of steam energy in the hoods guarantees the lowest possible emissions and environmental impact.

This major order confirms the long-standing cooperation between APP and Toscotec, which in the past has already provided APP with a significant number of Steel Yankee Dryers.
