Paper Industry




Forming Section

The paper forming section of a paper machine is where the pulp, also called fibre grout, is converted into a sheet with the help of the formation rollers or forming table. This is where the different rollers and suction presses form the sheet of paper and reduce the water contained in the pulp.
The coverings of the rollers paper forming table must have the best possible properties since it is a critical zone for the formation of the paper sheet is practically constituted fixing its structure and main characteristics.
In Tecno Caucho Rolls & Covers we are specialized in the construction and covering of rollers for the formation of paper, be it head rollers, lump-breaker, wire drive, etc... besides mechanical maintenance, including maintenance and repair of suction presses and suction boxes.

Press Section

The press section of a paper machine is the intermediate between the forming and drying section, the rollers and presses of this step are used to reduce the water content of the sheet of paper formed and consolidate its structure.
It is very important to count the most advanced technical covers and coatings in both materials and surface finishes as this will help to reduce the energy cost of the subsequent drying stage.
Tecnocaucho Rolls & Covers has all types of coverings available for the rollers and presses of the press section of the paper, we have qualities in premium natural and synthetic rubber, polyurethane elastomers of high properties, as well as ceramic coatings, composites and metallic coantings like tungsten carbide that make it possible to improve the surface of the paper sheet, achieving a greater superficial smoothness.
We have a wide range of hardness coverings for drying presses, this together with our perfect surface finishes and ground with maximum precision pumping allows the NIP in the contact area of the presses evenly distribute the pressure on the felt which minimizes water reabsorption by the sheet, improving the properties of the paper, achieving roughness, absorption capacity and adequate volume.
With these rollers and presses we obtain a resulting sheet of paper with a high dryness in the wet section of the paper machine, and this allows us to greatly reduce breaks in the drying and stretching sections.

Drying Section

The drying of the paper sheet is the most expensive operation of paper making, during the drying section the paper sheet goes through a series of rollers and presses covered with anti-adhesive materials resistant to high temperatures and water vapor.
Tecnocaucho Rolls & Covers has a wide range of coatings and coatings for the rollers and suction presses of ventilation and dryers, our star paper dryer coating has a superior level of anti-adhesive and an extreme resistance to high temperature.

Sizing and Coating section

The presses and rollers used in the dimensioning and coating section of a paper machine must have the appropriate properties depending on the work they are going to perform, we have technical coverings with different properties in polyurethane rubber as well as in natural and synthetic rubber elastomers.
Tecno Caucho Rolls & Covers has extensive experience in sizer section and film presses, as well as speed sizer hard and soft cover presses, whether for vertical, horizontal or inclined roller gluing machines, for starch applications, any type of dye or stucco.
We have a series of formulations for covers in the coater section with which we obtain excellent results in both application and durability, more than 50 years of experience in coverings for baking roll, metering roll and press roll film support us.

Calendering Section

The calender of a paper machine is a section with a key task, that of modifying the surface properties of the paper sheet, besides controlling its thickness.
The covering of the rollers and presses in this section of the paper machine must have excellent quality and finish as it is pressed between rollers by copying the surface of the rollers.
There are different types of calender depending on the results being sought for the properties of the paper sheet, there are cylinder covers to improve gloss, densify the paper or improve printing properties.
At Tecno Caucho Rolls & Covers we have exclusive formulations of coverings for all types of calender, whether they are covers in synthetic composite materials (composites), rubber or polyurethane elastomers, as well as metallic coatings by HVOF high speed thermal projection.

Winding and Reeling Section

The coverings for rollers, drums and winding cylinders must be manufactured with high quality to ensure proper operation at today's high paper winding speeds, regardless of the density and volume of the paper sheet produced by your machine.
We have an extensive cathalsus with rubber, polyurethane and metalic material formulations applied by HVOF thermal spraying for roll coatings of winding and reeling rollers with different properties and hardness so that they adapt to each paper machine.
Tecnocaucho Rolls & Covers' rewinding rollers are designed to eliminate air wrinkles and marks on the sheet of paper during winding and rewinding, in addition to maximizing maintenance intervals and improving paper and cardboard production without compromising quality.

Tissue Paper Machine

The tissue paper machine is a special paper machine that manufactures a tissue paper sheet with elasticity, softness, volume and absorption characteristics that are perfect for domestic and sanitary consumption, among others.
Tissue paper is characterized by its low specific weight, usually between 15 and 30 gr/m2, and by the creping, i. e. a micro wrinkle that presents on its entire surface.
Polyurethane and natural and synthetic rubber coverings for tissue paper machines must have very specific qualities because these machines do not have several drying cylinders like conventional paper mills, but have a single crepe cylinder, the Yankee cylinder, in which the paper is dried in a very short time, therefore the coatings of the suction presses and the blind tissue paper presses have to be made of a special material.
At Tecno Caucho Rolls & Covers we have extensive experience in the covering of cylinders for tissue machines, not only do we have exclusive formulations for polyurethane presses and rubber suction rollers, but we also have the latest technology of multi-layer composite covers specially designed for tissue paper machine.
We are talking about the press roller cover known as Maxidry System, a covering that increases drying capacity, improves machine felt life, improves paper quality and reduces Yankee generated vibrations, all with lower energy consumption.
