MG TEC Industry successfully started up its second complete tissue production line from ANDRITZ at its mill in Dej, Romania. The first line went into operation in 2021.

Dorin Mocan, CEO of MG TEC Industry, says: “Energy-efficient production and perfect end-product quality – those were our key targets and together with ANDRITZ we achieved them. I am proud to hold the first tissue in my hands now.” Simion Buburuz, Technical Manager of MG TEC Industry, adds: “With their great team on site and their support in all areas ANDRITZ perfectly met the challenging start-up schedule. Our second line was started up on the dot.” 

The turnkey order comprised a PrimeLineCOMPACT tissue machine, a complete stock preparation system, pumps, automation, hall ventilation, and electrificiation.

The stock preparation system includes an approach flow system and broke handling. TwinFlo disc refiners lead to optimum development of fiber properties, and the ShortFlow concept enables fast grade changes and high flexibility. The tissue machine (1,900 m/min design speed, 2.85 m paper width) is equipped with a steel Yankee for energy-efficient drying, specially designed forming fabrics, a press felt for high dryness, and a suction pressure roll cover for efficient machine throughput. High-efficiency pumps and ANDRITZ Digital Solutions complete the scope of supply.
