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 sheet is the most expensive operation of paper manufacturing, during the drying stage the sheet of paper passes through a series of rollers and presses coated with anti-adhesive materials and resistant to high temperatures and water vapor.
Tecnocaucho Rolls & Covers has a wide range of coatings for the rollers and suction presses for ventilation and dryers. Our star paper dryer coating has a superior anti-adherent level as well as extreme resistance to high temperatures.

Sizing and coating section

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

Calendering Section

The calender of a paper machine is a section with a key task, that of modifying the surface properties of the sheet of paper, as well as controlling its thickness.
The coating of the rolls and presses of this section of the paper machine have to have an excellent quality and finishes since the press between rolls copying the surface of these.
There are different types of calenders depending on the results being sought for the properties of the sheet of paper, there are cylinder coatings to improve gloss, densify the paper or improve printing properties.
In Tecno Caucho Rolls & Covers we have exclusive formulations of coatings for all types of calenders, whether coatings in synthetic composites, rubber elastomers or polyurethane, as well as metal coatings by high speed thermal projection HVOF.

Winding and Reeling Section

Coatings for rolls, drums and spooling cylinders must be manufactured to a high quality to ensure proper operation at today's high paper winding speeds, regardless of the density and volume of the sheet of paper produced by your machine.
We have an extensive catalogue with formulations of rubber elastomers, polyurethane and metal materials applied by HVOF thermal spray for winding and winding roller coatings with different properties and hardnesses to suit each paper machine.
Tecnocaucho Rolls & Covers' winding and debinding rollers are designed to eliminate air wrinkles and marks on the sheet of paper during winding, as well as maximising maintenance intervals, achieving an improvement in paper and cardboard production without reducing quality.

Tissue Paper Machine

The tissue paper machine is a special paper machine that manufactures a tissue sheet with characteristics of elasticity, softness, volume and absorption that are perfect for consumption in the domestic and health sector among others.
Tissue paper is characterised by its low specific weight, normally between 15 and 30 gr/m2, and by creping, that is to say, a micro wrinkle that presents on all its surface.
Polyurethane and natural and synthetic rubber coatings for tissue paper machines must have very specific qualities as these machines do not have several drying cylinders like conventional paper mills, but rather have a single crepe cylinder, the Yankee cylinder, in which the paper is dried in a very short time, so the coatings for vacuum presses and blind presses for tissue paper must be of the highest quality.
In Tecno Caucho Rolls & Covers we have a wide experience in cylinder coatings for tissue machines, not only do we have exclusive formulations for polyurethane presses and rubber suction rolls but also we have the latest technology of multilayer composite coatings specially designed for tissue paper machine, we are talking about the press coating known as the Maxidry System, a coating that increases the drying capacity, improves the life of the machine felt, the quality of the paper and reduces the vibrations generated by the Yankee, all with lower energy consumption.
