ProJet receives order for a Dual Tail Cutter from New Indy Containerboard in Oxnard, CA, USA

July 2023

ProJet received an order for a unique Dual Cutter, also called Tail & Deckle Cutter, for the Wire Section of the New Indy paper machine in Oxnard, CA, USA. New Indy is producing board on a 126 in. wide machine with very frequent deckle changes. New Indy selected ProJet as preferred supplier because ProJet’s Tail & Deckle Cutter excels in quality, reliability and user-friendliness.

ProJet’s Tail & Deckle Cutter has the following features:

  • Automated trim removal before the couch and size press
  •  Eliminates changing deckle widths of suction and press rolls
  •  Substantial savings in drying energy possible if trim is removed at the wet-end instead of after the reel 

This leads to the following benefits:

  • Adjusting the paper width to cross directional shrink => Minimum paper loss at pope roller
  • Parameter feedback: “End of production run” or “All parameters ready to go for new production run” => Unproductive time between production runs is minimized.
  • Setting the Tail width => Quickest possible adjustments.
  • Choosing the position of the Tail => Best position of the press rolls or press felts
  • Choice for dual speed => Optimal speed for “Go to full width” and thus minimizing the risk for sheet breaks.
  •             => Highest possible speed at “Cut off” and thus reducing scrap to a minimum.
  • Remote control => Operating personnel does not need to wait at the forming section during tail transfer=> reduction of labor

The equipment is scheduled to be delivered in Q4, 2023 and installation & start-up in Q1, 2024. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
