December 5, 2018 – Voith recently supplied Mexican paper company Copamex with a new Voith VariFlex winder at its Chihuahua, Mexico, facility.

With the new winder, the papermaker has increased its process capacity while making improvements to the plant’s safety.

"Voith has been a great partner to us and with this recent winder installation, we’re significantly improving our production capability, reducing overall maintenance requirements and increasing safety at our mill," says Arturo Contreras, project manager, Copamex.

The Voith VariFlex two-drum winder, which has numerous installations worldwide, boasts easy web-threading, automated splice systems, a one-step glue and perforation system, highly accurate slitters, vibration-controlling bearings and damping systems, as wel as automatic reel set changes.

A short delivery time was provided by the Voith team who designed, assembled and tested the components at their facility in Appleton, Wisconsin.

"The key factors for a successful project are time and transparency," says Alex Aerts, application engineer for winders at Voith Paper. "With this set-up, we ensured both delivery in the shortest time and a hand-in-hand approach to this project. This began with personal meetings, a joined factory test in Appleton and a fully supported start-up by our experienced start-up engineers."

Voith Paper is a paper manufacturing process supplier and part of global technology company Voith Group.
