From speciality papers, through the range to newsprint and tissue, people all around the world on a day to day basis come into contact with paper - more so than any other product. Despite the growing importance of electronic communication this has not declined, in fact just the opposite, global paper consumption is growing.
Straight line splice preperation with tesa EasySplice FastLine
Market experts forecast that in the next three years annual worldwide consumption will have risen to over 420 million tonnes. Today, paper can be produced on machinery with capacities of up to 400,000 tonnes per year, with the largest machines processing widths of over 10 metres.
In this high performance industry, with its complex challenging production processes, efficiency and speed are becoming increasingly more important. As a specialist in technical tapes, tesa offers innovative, cost effective system solutions for the production process involved in paper manufacturing – in production of base paper, coating, finishing, slitting and sheeting.
Particularly challenging is the flying splice method where the expiring roll is spliced onto an incoming new web without reduction in production speed, which can vary from 300 to 2000 meters per minute. tesa EasySplice Fastline can handle high tolerance factors of tension and pressure, and the high tack adhesive ensures splice success when both webs come into contact.
Whether during splicing or when patching holes in paper webs, tesa adhesive tapes and die cuts ensure a continuous, smooth production process and the highest levels of quality and efficiency. All tesa adhesive tapes for the paper industry are fully repulpable, including the liners.
