Voith presents portfolio at Zellcheming

The paper industry is facing unprecedented challenges. Rising material prices, high energy costs and changing framework conditions require new approaches and solutions. This year's hybrid Zellcheming trade show serves as an exchange platform of pioneering process and product technology innovations for the paper, cellulose and fiber-based industries. Voith will present under the motto “Papermaking for Life” at the Zellcheming trade show, Booth 24, Hall North.

As a full-line supplier to the global paper industry and gold sponsor of the trade fair, Voith will showcase its solutions for the most efficient and sustainable paper production. The trade show will take place from June 29 to July 1 at the RheinMain CongressCenter (RMCC), Wiesbaden, Germany.

“At our booth, interested customers can learn about individual optimization options that lead to lower resource consumption and significantly higher profitability,” says Martin Bassmann, President Product & Services EMEA at Voith Paper. “After the long break due to COVID-19, we are especially looking forward to the personal exchange on site.”

Full-line portfolio for optimized paper production

The fields of action for more sustainable and efficient paper production are numerous. Based on years of know-how combined with innovations, Voith offers solutions for the entire papermaking process. For example, the BlueLine OCC stock preparation system reduces fiber consumption by up to 10 to 15 percent. With the help of more efficient and digital solutions, savings potentials of up to 30 percent can be achieved in the production process.
