Paper is a sheet comprised of cellulose fibers. Paper was developed to serve the purpose of communication in the earlier era. Later, its applications were widened in terms of packaging, wrapping, photography, insulation, etc. Paper was earlier made from papyrus. Papyrus is a plant mainly found in Egypt. Paper was produced out of the fibers derived from the stems and barks of this tree. These fibers were molded and transformed into thin, smooth and soft sheets. The sheets were made able to be written on, and thus, were termed as papers.
The Invention of Paper Machine
Earlier, before the development and advancements, the paper was made with frames and molds. The raw material mixture was molded into the frames and sheets were developed one by one. However, time and growth in technology paved the way for the manufacturing of machinery that could roll out large amounts of paper with good quality in lesser time.
The first-ever paper machine was the Fourdrinier machine, developed in 1807 by the Fourdrinier brothers. With this machine, rolls of papers were produced with a continuously rolling wire mesh. It had four main sections – Wet end, Press section, Dryer section, and the Calendar section.
About 2 years later, another machine was devised by a papermaker named John Dickinson. This gave rise to the trend of paper machine manufacturing. Sooner, the paper industry was transformed into a large import-export business in India.
The Process of Setting Up Paper Machine Technology
The process carried out for the making of Parason paper machine technology guarantees the performance and efficient working of the machine.
A strong paper machine technology is implemented for the conceptual designing of the machine that provides productive output.
It is necessary to obtain the optimal runnability of the machines and equipment.
The paper machine technology involves the ranges from stock preparation to finishing the process of the products.
The technology for paper making ensures all-round development of the products as well as the process. Technology department in Ravensburg. This organization should ensure optimal support and product utilization for all our customers, whatever their needs.
Paper machine technologies are different for the 3 main types of machines –
Fourdrinier is a widely used machine in paper mills. It is build of the following components – headbox, stock distribution system, separation mechanism, forming section, dryer, roll press section, reel, and calendar stack.
The Twin-Wire formers are used to filter the fabrics and various raw materials used for paper manufacturing.
The Multiply formers are used for paperboard manufacturing. This system is built with multiple screens covered cylinders. Web formation occurs on the screen that results in the removal of the filtrate.
The main equipment used in the entire paper machinery for paper production are –
The Headbox, Forming Section, The Press Section, The Dryer, Calendering, Reel, Winder, Coating Unit, and Converting Unit.
Paper machines are classified into the following types depending on their functionalities and types of paper manufactured. These are – Non-woven Fabric Production Mill, Tissue Mill, Kraft Paper Mill, Paper Machine, Kraft Line Paper Printing, Writing Paper, Paper/Board Machine Trim Width. etc.
Paper is made from pulp. The manufacturing of pulp is done using pulpers or pulverizers. The process includes equipment designed for filtering, screening, deinking, etc. The machinery is manufactured by our highly skilled R&D Team members. The machinery is built upon the fact that they consume less power and give more output with higher work efficiency.
