The “hard” or “soft nip” calender is an essential component of the paper machine, influencing factors such as smoothness, gloss and CD thickness.
Bellmer GapCon’s calenders are custom built to meet each customer’s requirements yet using the standardized equipment. By choosing the right combination of single or multiple nips, hard or soft calender, line load capacity,
TURBORoll type (classic swimming roll with/without control of edge zones or multi-zone roll) and our heated roll
TURBORoll VT with different surface temperatures, the tools can be combined as needed for the customer’s target and budget. Where a TURBORoll MZ roll (multi-zone) type is chosen, the controls can be linked to a QCS system for automatic caliper adjustment in closed-loop operation. In addition to the calender, all necessary auxiliary systems such as hydraulic unit, lubrication system, and heating unit can be supplied. A rope-less tail threading system, vacuum belt type, is available as well.
High quality production
Further product highlights include user-friendly operation, proven design and quality, and the tilted frame design allowing quicker and simpler roll change. Bellmer GapCon calenders have already proven their worth many times over in various mills around the world.
