Voith Installs MasterJet Pro Headbox at Unionpel mill, Argentina
Unionpel, one of Argentina's leading packaging paper manufacturers, chose Voith to supply its new MasterJet Pro headbox fitted with EdgeMaster format limiters for its paper machine (PM1) that operates at its San Justo mill, located in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina.
The new Voith MasterJet Pro headbox allowed the manufacturer to achieve significant improvements in paper web formation, as well as a significant decrease of CD basis weight variations. The erection, commissioning and start-up services were completed as scheduled, and the machine’s commercial production was resumed immediately after start-up.
Voith is a strategic supplier for Unionpel, not only because it is acquainted with the paper machine’s critical areas, but also because the German multinational manufacturer operates a subsidiary in Argentina, which has enabled it to establish important partnership with its customers by and thereby offer products, services and solutions more quickly and accurately.
