When a client was having difficulty finding a pre-configured calendering solution to fit their individual application, our team at Associated Machine Design, Inc. proposed a custom engineered system that we could build within their budgetary and time constraints.

Our project team used advanced 3D software techniques to model the machinery and validate the design. We developed and constructed the machine calender highlighted here to process various grades of tissue paper in the 32 to 140 lb. basis weight range. Notable features included a tensioning control system adjustable within a very wide 0 to 200 PLI range and an air bag loading system. We designed it to handle paper widths up to 204", a cooling roll diameter of 22", and swimming roll diameter of 19" to produce consistent and uniform surface profiles.

As a turnkey solutions provider, we have the engineering and production resources to conceptualize, design, and implement systems that achieve our client’s specific production goals. To learn more about this project, or to discuss the specific detail of your application, contact us today.
