‘Roll up!’ specialist seminar for technical rolls, Stuttgart, Germany

The first specialist seminar for customers using technical rolls was a roaring success.

We are very pleased with this: the wide range of customers and industries and our lack of experience in this field made it hard to predict the outcome of the event. Its objective was to encourage exchange, and judging from the many open discussions that took place, we seem to have achieved it. Our customers’ feedback for the—I quote—“extremely professional”, “outstanding” and “highly interesting” seminar, which we “ought to repeat”, also confirmed that.

Q.dura: dehesive and
dirt-repellent surface

SchaeferRolls on the MIAC 2018 in Lucca, Italy

From 10.-12. October 2018, Lucca opens its doors for the tissue industry. Also SchaeferRolls GmbH & Co KG will once again be present at the 25th MIAC, the International Exhibition of Paper Industry.

The specialist for roll covers made of rubber, polyurethane and composite materials will this year focus on the PU cover Q.dura (photo), a new development for converting systems prone to glue deposit build-ups on the marrying roll. Due to the dehesive and dirt-repellent surface, Q.dura reduces the cleaning intervals and significantly increases the service life of the cover due to its excellent abrasion resistance.

Bundled competence at the center of the tissue industry
In addition, SchaeferRolls, together with its partners MWN Niefern Maschinenfabrik GmbH and Schaefer MWN GmbH with its brand :CCOR, offers high-performance rolls as end-to-end solutions.

SCHÄFERROLLS TO EXHIBIT AT ZELLCHEMING 2014

New opportunities for roll covers and CFRP roll systems

SchäferRolls is utilising the slogan "we tiss you” to launch its new roll cover product portfolio for all kinds of tissue manufacturing and converting applications. As the pressure to enhance machine performance intensifies, hand-in-hand with the desire to meet customer quality standards, this drives continual efforts to optimise tissue product manufacturing. The choice of roll cover plays a significant part in the manufacturing process, as it directly affects the bulk and softness of tissue products, as well as dewatering performance and the runnability of the equipment. All SchäferRolls tissue roll covers have been designed to meet special demands with respect to roll position, end product type and machine operator preferences.

A special focus will be on the new tisQ.R pressure roll cover, which has outstanding elasticity and excellent surface stability to ensure a safe and highly efficient roll operation, also without internal cooling.

In addition, the joint initiative between SchaeferRolls and MWN Niefern Maschinenfabrik GmbH for activities in the field of innovative components made from fibre-reinforced plastics will be presented at Zellcheming. The joint venture  Schäfer MWN GmbH   which combines the competences and expertise of both companies for design, construction, material and processing technology for advanced composites components, will present its product range and development opportunities for the successful application of CFRP roll systems in the paper machine.

You´ll find us at the Zellcheming Expo 2014 booth 11.0-B31

REINFORCEMENT

SchaeferRolls increase crane capacity at production facility in Renningen, Germany

As part of its investment measures, SchaeferRolls GmbH & Co. KG has again increased its crane capacity at its Renningen plant. The installation of a new overhead crane with a lifting capacity of 50 t required the strengthening of crane girders and the building structure. The new crane and the two existing 25 t overhead cranes in the shop floors now make it possible to move rolls and roller systems with unit weights of up to 100 t when the three cranes work together. This means that the production areas at SchaeferRolls now fully meet the prerequisites for coating and servicing the largest and heaviest roll systems used in modern industrial machines.
The upgraded crane system has significantly increased the flexibility of the company's production facilities.

CYCLUS 3

New Generation of polyurethane roll covers

By using an innovative polyurethane material and an ingenious cover structure, we have considerably increased drilling and grooving depths of press rolls and suction press rolls – without affecting the stability of the cover surface. cyclus 3 polyurethane offers excellent wear resistance and unparalleled dynamic strength.
The combination of material properties, cover design and our special production processes makes it possible to groove cyclus 3 covers up to a depth of 3 mm and to blind drill them up to a depth of 11 mm, while maintaining the same drill depth across the whole width of the roll cover. The result: efficient dewatering due to significantly improved water storage volumes and uniform hydraulic pressures in the roll nip. In addition, the specific cover structure allows for more grinding allowance, hence for repeated regrooving: cyclus 3 covers can be given a three millimeter groove three times before needing to be replaced. cyclus 3 covers provide three full lifecycles, thus considerably reducing the roll cover’s total cost of ownership.

Another process innovation was accomplished by creating the SchaeferRolls SurfaceOptimizer, a computer simulation that makes it possible to optimise roll cover surfaces and plan the dewatering performance on site with the customer.

Our new generation of polyurethane roll covers offers a number of convincing benefits. That’s why we have already received orders from reputable companies within a very short period of time.

U.COAT ROLL COVERS

U.coat: Best running time results in the film press at Kübler & Niethammer

The Kübler & Niethammer paper factory in Kriebstein (Germany) was able to significantly increase the running time of the applicator roll in the PM1 film press through the use of a U.coat polyurethane cover from SchäferRolls.
According to Michael Moser, Production Manager at Kübler & Niethammer, the U.coat roll cover displayed very positive running time characteristics, in relation to service life, as well as coating application quality. “We are very satisfied”, reports Michael Moser. “We have achieved nearly double the running time of the conventional rubber roll covers and would certainly have been able to run longer without any problem. The coating application was very homogeneous during the entire running time.”
Kübler & Niethammer produces 85,000 t of coated offset papers per annum.

In addition to the implementation at Kübler & Niethammer, SchäferRolls` U.coat roll covers are running with great success in two additional film presses in German-speaking countries. In one application, the best results are being achieved in a combined operation with starch and coating. In another implementation, three customer-specifically, optimised HybriFlex versions in a dual layer design have already been delivered, which have excelled through extraordinary mechanical robustness and an excellent life time.
