PMP SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENTS ANOTHER INTELLI-NIP® SHOE PRESS   (Company news)

NEW PRESS SECTION INTELLI-PRESS® FOR PM#1 APIS SZCZECIN- SKOLWIN, POLAND

In February 2016, PMP (Paper Machinery Producer) launched another Intelli-Nip® Shoe Press as a core technological item of a new press section Intelli-Press® for Apis Sp. z o.o., Szczecin-Skolwin, Poland.
Intelli-Nip® Shoe Press technology is great hybrid of energy saving solution & impressive paper properties and is recently a desired solution worldwide. At present, PMP is executing 4 projects that include its shoe press solution: in USA, Mexico, Columbia and China.
The customer decided to re-start an existing PM#1 (reel trim 5425 mm), originally built by Fampa (a predecessor of PMP), and change its production profile from newsprint into fluting and liner grades.
Beside a production’s philosophy change, it was important to reach an annual production capacity goal at the level of 100 000 tpa of premium quality fluting and liner grades (basis weight range : 80-140 g/m2 ) at operating speed of 500 mpm.
To meet budget expectations, a scope of delivery was divided between parties. Apis team took care of a significant number of changes in the area of a stock preparation system and a PM’s wet end (a headbox and a wire) and in addition a refurbished size press was added. Whereas a new press section was fully designed and built by PMP (based on deliveries and services provided by PMP’s Polish divisions: PMPoland S.A. and PMP Rolls & Services).
PMP was also responsible for: pre-assembly services of the press section, movement tests before shipment, logistics, on site services including: erection, commissioning, start-up, training and optimization.
To achieve technological project goals within a press section area, PMP designed a modern Intelli-Press®, including 3 nips: a plain roll – on the 1st position (nip load 90 kN/m), a suction roll – on the 2nd position (nip load 30-40 kN/m) and the Intelli-Nip® Shoe Press on the 3rd position (design nip load 750 kN/m, module type: 1300).
A sophisticated press section configuration helps to achieve a dryness after press at the level of 50% following low steam consumption figures, supports reaching PM targeted annual capacity significantly and, in a visible way, reduces open draws increasing production effectiveness (higher PM effectiveness, stable PM operation, less paper breaks). In addition, shoe press technology helps to achieve expected paper properties especially much better bulk and stiffness.
This particular project is an example where PMP’s technological knowledge combined with high-tech equipment can become a key factor to achieve common success. Intelli-Nip® Shoe Press technology, supported by patented solutions, ensures reliable PM performance and top sheet dryness level resulting in significant steam consumption savings and user-friendliness.

Forces of Nature. Primal elements that have always been associated with power, strength and vitality. Their metaphorical properties have become an inspiration for PMP Group to start a new campaign which symbolizes the benefits of the company’s three major, technological lines. Stable as the Earth itself, delicate as the Wind and energetic as Fire - Three Forces of PMP Group.

Earth. The soil, that gives life to all living creatures. The very base for creating and maintaining existence. Associated with growth and solidity, often evokes the feeling of security. Even our own planet bares its name. For PMP Group, Earth is a perfect symbol of its Intelli-Technology® line – a Platform Concept for Papermakers. Reliability, strength, evolution, ecology. Nouns that describe both the force and technological concept. For years now, PMP Group has been devoting its efforts to develop a platform that would be reliable, ecological and cost-effective. Now, after years of technological progress, PMP’s Intelli-Technology® line reflects all benefits that are associated with one of the most powerful Forces of Nature – Earth. Purity, gentleness and lightness.

Second of PMP Group’s Forces – Wind, is a perfect reflection of the company’s Intelli-Tissue® line - Platform Concept for Tissue Makers. Tissue products, provided by PMP Group’s machines, just as the Wind itself, can be associated with the softness of a subtle breeze. Their silky nature however, combined with their strength, can reflect the power of a hurricane. Both delicate and strong. This contradictory Force symbolizes the very nature of the final product. PMP Intelli-Tissue® line is as powerful and delicate as the Wind itself.

Fire. A burning flame of the PMP Phoenix Concept™ rebuilds. Just as a Phoenix rising from the ashes, PMP’s concept will bring a new life to any existing machinery. Fire is considered to be the most powerful of all Forces of Nature. It is dynamic and rapid. It is the fuel for creativity, passion and has always been an essential part for the development of all civilizations. It transforms from one form to another – just as the Phoenix Concept™ transforms a technological line and gives it a new life. For PMP Group, Fire is the link between Earth and Wind. In the technological concept, it refers to both Intelli-Technology® and Intelli-Tissue® line. It connects both Forces of Nature and creates a harmonious symphony of modern technology.

PMP Group’s new campaign is a metaphorical representation of the company’s three major technological lines – Intelli-Technology®, Intelli-Tissue® and Phoenix Concept™ rebuilds. The symbolism behind three Forces of Nature can be reflected in the company’s offer. Through the dusk of everyday business existence, through the maze of far-reaching decisions. We give you PMP Group’s new drive – Earth, Wind & Fire.
