Valmet to supply new off-machine coater to Oji Papéis Especiais in Brazil

Valmet will supply a new off-machine coating machine to Oji Papéis Especiais (OPE) in Piracicaba, Brazil. With the new off-machine coater PC4, OPE is seeking to increase thermal paper production capacity and strengthen its competitiveness globally, focusing on the Brazilian, South American and North American markets. The PC4 will increase OPE's thermal paper production capacity by 80%. The start-up of the new off-machine coater is scheduled for November 2021.

The value of the order will not be disclosed. The value of an order of this type is typically around Euro 25-35 million.

Valmet's delivery for the off-machine coater will include a new OptiCoat Layer curtain coating station, which gives a very good profiling and coverage even with thin layers, thus the amount of expensive thermal coating color can be kept low. The delivery includes also a re-reeler, an OptiCalender Soft calender, an OptiReel Center reel and OptiDry Coat coating air dryers. The air-drying capacity and their temperatures have been carefully calculated and optimized for high quality thermal paper. The delivery will also include a supply system for the curtain coater unit.

The start-up and the further optimization of the new board machine will be supported remotely from Valmet Performance Center utilizing the latest Industrial Internet solutions. Data-based and proactive remote support is a fast and efficient way to ensure that the optimal thermal paper quality is reached, and the machine is meeting the planned start-up curve.

The 4,200 mm wide (reel) off-machine coater will produce thermal grades in the basis weight range of 44-55 g/m2. The design speed is 1,200 m/min.
