Bulk-saving reeling and winding

Reeling and winding are the two steps in the boardmaking process where the bulk of produced board can be either preserved or ruined. Nip loads that are too high are the main reasons for losing bulk. Valmet’s combination of bulk-saving reeling and winding are essential for e.g. coated board makers.

Valmet's center-driven reels (OptiReel Linear and OptiReel Center) – precise load control and use of center drives minimize bulk loss and the uniques OptiWin Belt – the ultimate winder for FBB, nip loads are less than 50% compared to a two-drum winder.

The total bulk saving potential is up to 4% with a combination of OptiReel center-driven reeling and OptiWin Belt winding.
