AUTOMATIC TAIL THREADING SYSTEM - REFERENCES
CENIBRA, BELO ORIENTE, MINAS GERAIS, BRAZIL
ANDRITZ recently supplied an automatic tail threading system to CENIBRA’s Belo Oriente pulp mill in Brazil. The system, from dryer to cutter, was installed on the tending side of an existing Lamb cutter that was first installed in the 1970s. There were no major modifications needed during installation.
Weldon de Paula Nascimento, Cenibra’s baling coordinator, says, “The work required to return the machine to operating status naturally demands greater attention from the operator as there are numerous actions to be carried out very close to the equipment. The system provides an increase in operator safety and has become more autonomous.”
