Rebuild of Paper Machine 5



Koehler Paper is also relying on leading Voith technologies in the second rebuild stage of paper machine 5. A new NipcoFlex shoe press in the existing press section ensures more sustainable production. The technologically leading solution from Voith also increases production capacity.


After a successful first rebuild stage of the paper machine 5 in Oberkirch, Germany – with the installation of the Voith SpeedSizer film press and contactless qDryPro Compact high‐performance drying system – Koehler Paper has confirmed its confidence in Voith. Hartmut Felsch, mill Director at Koehler, Oberkirch, Germany: “"In Voith, we have found a strong and reliable partner with the highest quality standards for all areas of paper production.”

Thorsten Heidt, Senior Sales Manager at Voith also confirms: “We have a long‐standing, successful business relationship with Koehler. Just recently, Koehler was able to achieve a world speed record with the new production line 8 at the Kehl location thanks to our successful cooperation and continuous optimization. We are very pleased that Koehler has again opted for our leading technologies and that our solution convinced in all points.”

More sustainability and production capacity through new technologies

Koehler has selected the full‐line supplier to deliver the second modernization stage, focusing on the much‐proven NipcoFlex shoe press. The aim is to achieve an optimal production result. With the installation of the NipcoFlex shoe press in the existing press section, the dry content after the press is significantly increased. As a result, large amounts of steam can be saved in the dryer section for drying the paper web. The rebuild thus helps save energy and reduce CO2 emissions in the plant. In addition, the higher dry content increases line speed and production capacity.
