  • Andritz has completed the delivery of a second tissue production line to MG TEC Industry at its Romanian mill, featuring a PrimeLineCompact tissue machine, stock preparation system, pumps, automation, and ventilation.
  • The installation enables MG TEC to produce high-quality tissue products with low energy consumption and reduced environmental impact.
MG TEC Industry, an innovative newcomer in the tissue industry, has successfully started up its second complete tissue production line from international technology group Andritz at its mill in Dej, Romania. This follows the successful start-up of the first line in 2021.

The turnkey order comprised a PrimeLineCompact tissue machine, a complete stock preparation system, pumps, automation, hall ventilation, and electrification. The stock preparation system includes an approach flow system and broke handling, while twin-flow disc refiners lead to optimum development of fibre properties. The ShortFlow concept enables fast grade changes and high flexibility, Andritz said in a press release.

The tissue machine, which has a design speed of 1,900 metres per minute and a paper width of 2.85 metres, is equipped with a steel Yankee for energy-efficient drying, specially designed forming fabrics, a press felt for high dryness, and a suction pressure roll cover for efficient machine throughput. High-efficiency pumps and Andritz Digital Solutions complete the scope of supply.

“Energy-efficient production and perfect end-product quality—those were our key targets, and together with Andritz, we achieved them. I am proud to hold the first tissue in my hands now,” said Dorin Mocan, CEO of MG TEC Industry.

“With their great team on site and their support in all areas Andritz perfectly met the challenging start-up schedule. Our second line was started up on the dot,” said Simion Buburuz, technical manager of MG TEC Industry.
