LACQUERING AND COATING LINES

These are mainly machine systems, which coat resp. refine one or two sides of the paper web.

Coating systems for these are:

  • doctor knives (Meyerbar)
  • swimming doctor knife for high production speeds
  • roll application systems

Our coatings are multi-purpose and bring a variety of possible processes and final products.

Materials, which we can lacquer and/or coat:

  • masking tape
  • finish-foils
  • cardboard
  • glass fibres and non-woven
  • art papers
  • and many more

Parameters:

  • speeds up to 400 m/min
  • working widths up to 4,0 m
  • heating gas/thermal oil/steam
  • Plant configurations:
  • multi-stage
  • roll-to-roll
  • on request integrated surface weight and moisture measurement are possible

A solvent concentration monitoring according to ATEX-standards prevents an explosion risk at use of inflammable, solvent-containing coatings.

RTO-systems for a regenerative thermal oxidation from our partner Airprotech srl and Wessel make sure that during the production process formed environmentally harmful substances, as e.g. formaldehyde, are removed from the exhaust air.

FILTER PAPER LINES

VITS has vast experience and know-how in filter paper impregnation for the automotive industry. Oil filters used here are mainly consisting of papers impregnated with phenolic resin. Our plants are laid-out and configured according to customer-specific parameters, such as web width and speed.
Our plants stand for latest technique and efficiency in the production of filter papers for petrol, oil or air filter papers.

Parameters of a typical filter paper plant:

  • speeds up to 250 m/min
  • web widths up to 4,0 m
  • heating gas/thermal oil/steam

Plant configuration:

  • roll-to-roll
  • on request integrated surface weight and moisture measuring

A solvent concentration monitoring according to ATEX-standards prevents an explosion risk at use of inflammable, solvent-containing coatings.

Exhaust air purification systems from our partners Airprotech and Wessel ensure that the environmentally harmful substances produced during the production process, such as formaldehyde, are removed from the exhaust air.

PLANTS FOR TECHNICAL LAMINATES

Beside the manifold solutions for the wood based panel industry VITS engineers and builds special plants for the production of technical laminates. These plants are subject to highest requirements regarding quality and safety engineering.

With the continuous improvement of our coating and impregnation devices it is possible to have the - mostly expensive - resins precisely dosed onto or into the carrier material. This enables a raw material and energy consumption reduction for our customers.

No matter if radiation or high-efficiency drying: your product and your operating reliability are in good hands with VITS. Based on our experience from decades we make - together with our customer - a choice of the optimal drying technology and we specify the required heating and drying capacity for obtaining the chemical and technical qualities of your prepregs and/or end products. When using aggressive media, we use stainless steel floating dryers.
Of course, energy recovery concepts, exhaust air cleaning as well as a construction under consideration of current national and international standards, e.g. the explosion protection directions (ATEX), are also provided.

Plant examples:

  • Impregnation lines with vertical dryer for the production of prepregs on an epoxide resin base
  • Impregnation lines for the production of friction and clutch linings on a phenolic resin base
  • Flotation dryers made of stainless steel in case of aggressive media
  • Impregnation and coating lines for the production of mica foils on an epoxide resin base

MICA COATING AND LAMINATING PLANTS

Mica is a mineral material with extreme low electrical conductivity, which is used in the electro industry.

The special feature of the plants supplied by us is the wrinkle-free lamination of glass fibre webs and mica as well as the possibility to apply several protective foils.

Furthermore the dryer has an on-line metallic support belt, which allows - due to the large opening degree - not only different temperatures, but also air speeds in the dryer.
This support belt is also of good use, when mica as sole material - provided with resin saturation - should be dried.

Typical tasks:

  • electrical isolator - electro industry
  • laminates / Insulating materials – semi-conductor industry

A typical VITS - mica plant consists of the following aggregates:

  • several unwinders for glass webs, mica and protective foils
  • up to three coating devices
  • dryer with sieve belt
  • calender
  • cooling rolls
  • rewinder

Parameters:

  • production speeds up to 15 m/min
  • working widths up to 1,5 m
  • roll-to-roll

A solvent concentration monitoring according to ATEX-standards prevents an explosion risk and a fire danger at use of solvent-containing components.

RTO-systems for a regenerative thermal oxidation from our partner Airprotech srl make sure that during the production process formed environmentally harmful substances, as e.g. formaldehyde, are removed from the exhaust air.
