For its two newest paper mills, Klabin S. A., one of the largest paper and cardboard producers from Brazil, chose Herkules' outstanding roll grinding technology. A true innovation for the industry, Klabin's sustainably produced paper is made with a new processing technology.
To perfectly machine the rolls required for this purpose, Herkules is building a P 100 WSB 450 × 13,000/12,000 CNC capable of machining over 200 different types of rolls from two mills to ensure the perfect surface quality and rotational symmetry for paper production. A wide range of flexible application possibilities is of great importance for the paper industry in particular. Rolls with a wide variety of lengths, diameters, weights and coatings must be ground efficiently. Herkules is always the right partner for these demanding roll machining requirements.
In addition to the Herkules technical know-how, the integrated control and measuring systems and the extensive equipment options, the local service provided by our South American location was also a decisive factor in the investment decision. The professional support with high availability provided over many years also secured the decision on a partnership level.
