New Bellmer TurboReeller for CMPC : Workshop acceptance and training completed

<< Back to Breaking News

In order to automate the existing board machine in their Maule Mill 280 km south of Santiago de Chile, the Chilean mill CMPC ordered from Bellmer a new reeler section. The TurboReeller includes most modern equipment including center winder technology to minimize core losses at roll changes. The continuous movement of the spool rolls will be supported by the TurboTransporter. By a special airmover the ready spool rolls can be taken out of the machine, turned and returned. The transfer to the winder is executed with a Butt-Splicer which guarantees minimum changing times. For the first time Bellmer realized a Spool lift with automatic back transport to the reeler. The BellBase system with more than 1.100 input / output signals is monitoring the whole process. A complete spool roll will weigh 60 tons at a working width of 4,3 meter.

The Bellmer specialists mounted the complete section in the Site 3 in Germany in order to check all movements. This ensures a fast erection at site and a smooth start-up. It was the perfect time of CMPC to come and have a 1st training. 10 specialists from different departments like production, mechanical and electrical maintenance, automation and engineering stayed a full week in Germany. The Chileans could gain first experiences and make friendship with their German counterparts. The total weight of the reeler section is 510 tons. After a diligent dismantling the pre-mounted parts will be shipped in 25 containers. Start-up is planned for end of 2017.
