Papel San Francisco is a family own tissue producer based in Mexicali, Mexico, producing tissue and towel grades. The collaboration with Valmet started about 20 years ago and recently Papel San Francisco invested in their seventh tissue machine from Valmet. However, this time was worth celebrating a little extra, especially for Valmet since the delivery includes the hundredth Advantage™ ViscoNip® press to be manufactured by Valmet.
The Advantage ViscoNip press is a patented and unique product which has proven to be fundamental to reach various production benefits for tissue makers world-wide.
When Dario Palma y Meza Espinoza, Director of Operations and Enrique Zárate, Mill Manager, last visited Valmet in Sweden we took the opportunity to ask them what role the ViscoNip press plays for their production.
- For us it’s uniformity because all the profiles we get in the machine are very unique. It’s a huge difference between other machines.
- We have seen increase in quality of the paper but also less down time for maintenance. It has very good reliability. In addition, our operators states that it is easy to operate and easy maintenance.
- Our decision was driven by our wish to save energy and the ViscoNips press gave us potential to reach those goals.
- To make it short: Paper quality and energy savings.
