A.Celli supplies new tissue rewinder and roll handling system to St. Croix Tissue Inc.
30 October 2017
A.Celli supplies a new tissue rewinder and roll handling system St. Croix Tissue Inc., the US-based company that has recently entered the world of tissue manufacturing, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
St. Croix Tissue Inc., located in Baileyville, Maine (USA), is a recently born tissue manufacturing company that can already boast of a long-standing history. Its sister company, Woodland Pulp LLC, has been producing since 1904, and produces a premium quality raw material (bleached hardwood pulp) with wood chips coming from the surrounding forest areas, a portion of which is designated for St. Croix Tissue.
A.Celli Paper provided the Maine facilities with a complete roll handling system, which was started up in March of 2016 and October 2017.
Thanks to this system, the jumbo reels coming from the tissue machine are automatically transferred to the wrapper, making the production process not only more fluid and faster, but also safer. And this also because the new A.Celli Paper handling system is supported by overhead cranes (it, too, automatic) positioned above the tissue machines, that aid in the most critical phases. In addition to the roll handling system, the supply also included a new rewinder AC882.
