SFT Group continues modernization
In May 2016 SFT Group finished the modernization at Aleksin paper board mill (Aleksin, Tula region): there are two additional double mill roll stands and rope web threading of the cardboard machine dry end are installed. Modernization was carried out by Aleksin mill’s experts.
As a result manual rethreading of mill roll stands is not needed anymore. It is eliminated the human factor in the production process. Moreover now rethreading is 5 times faster (3 minutes versus 15 minutes earlier) without stopping the line. Absence of fragments on the sleeve and minimizing of roll breakages during rethreading reduced amount of waste substantial 2%. As a result of the modernization monthly production increased to 266 tons that allows to produce near 2 000 tones of mill-lined board in a month.
Modernization of cardboard threading on board machine, that was done manually before, automized the process: time of threading reduced to 2 times and the amount of waste due to breakages decreased by 15-30 kg for each rethreading.
The development of production capacities of Aleksin paper board mill carried out within the SFT Group’s investment program.
