At the beginning of 2013, Voith launched the NanoPro roll cover for calenders onto the market, which offers a very noticeable reduction of vibrations. This new cover is available for supercalenders, soft calenders and multi-nip calenders.
NanoPro provides a reliable and consistent performance as it has unique attributes in areas where vibrations would normally restrict the performance of roll covers. In comparison with other conventional roll covers, it manages to further reduce vibrations, even under difficult conditions. The annual operating and maintenance costs are thus lowered. Moreover, the profile of NanoPro remains uniform due to its high level of wear and abrasion resistance.
The multi-layer fiber-reinforced roll cover guarantees a uniform distribution of nanoparticles. Customized components and the manufacturing process ensure that the NanoPro layers can withstand severe impact damages. NanoPro also distributes a high compressive stresses evenly over the entire nip. Thus the customer can count on the best possible sheet characteristics for gloss and smoothness and ultimate running behavior.
