Voith MegaPress R roll covers offer optimum sheet release
Voith, Heidenheim, Germany, says its new MegaPress R roll cover uses a special micro-roughness to optimize sheet release.
The result, says the company, is better paper quality, less risk of web breaks and thus, less unscheduled downtime. The long service life also increases machine availability.
The covers release properties are tailored to the production conditions of smoothing presses where the web directly contacts the roll surface.
The cover’s new structure allows effective cleaning by the doctor blade, avoiding deposits on the roll surface and improving machine reliability.
Voith says the triple-layer rolls have particularly long service lives so they have to be replaced less often.
