Cartiera Olona is rebuilding of a dryer section of its paper machine in Varese, Italy. The company placed an order for the rebuild with Toscotec expecting improvement of the machine’s efficiency, reliability and safety in operations. The start-up of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for the second quarter of 2017.

Within the project Toscotec  will supply 25 new TT SteelDryers in place of casted iron dryers, that will allow the paper mill to increase its drying capacity, production and the width of the paper produced. The existing mechanical drive will be replaced with a new silent drive system. Tail threading will be ropeless from the press section through the new dryer section up to the pope reel.

The Varese mill, situated in the Olona Valley, cover an area of approximately 15,000 m2 . The paper mill is equipped with a continuous production line for grey card with a usable width of 2.30 metres. The annual production capacity is approximately 30,000 tons.
