Voith Paper expands service facility, starts up new machine.

Voith Paper Service Inc. has added a new production line to its Neenah, WI, Service Center roll covering facility, doubling the production capacity of Calendar roll covers for the North American market. As part of the expansion, Voith Paper Service Inc. installed new process equipment to increase processing efficiencies.

In other news, Inland Empire Paper Company, Spokane, WA, successfully started up its new Voith No. 5 paper machine, in April 2001. The machine order was originally awarded to Beloit Corporation. Due to bankruptcy proceedings, Beloit could not complete delivery of the machine. Inland was left with a completed dry end and only a foundation and machine pit where the press, former and headbox were to go. In April 2000, Inland placed an order with Voith Paper to design and construct a complete paper machine wet end. The order stipulated that the new equipment would work with the installed dry end and fit into the building space and foundations that were already in place. The new 250-inch (6370-mm) wide machine will operate at 5000 fpm, producing newsprint at 680 tons per day.
