Valmet has expanded the operations of its service center in Sorocaba, Brazil, to include comprehensive spreader roll services.
The new spreader roll workshop is ready to serve customers in the pulp, paper, board and tissue industries as of November 2018.
Valmet roll maintenance global technology manager Jukka Toikkanen said: “With this investment Valmet is able to offer spreader roll services for its customers in all continents. We have already got very positive feedback from our Brazilian customers for these services.
“Our state-of-the-art spreader roll service workshop in Sorocaba, provides high quality and fast services to our customers. We have invested in a separate dust-free clean room for the handling and installation of bearings, which ensures high quality and contributes to longer roll running times.”
Valmet spreader roll reconditioning services result in a clear increase in service intervals and cut overall maintenance costs. In addition to keeping spreader rolls in excellent condition, spreader roll services also ensure optimized roll performance, improved end product quality and reliable, wrinkle-free runs.
Valmet’s roll service center in Sorocaba, Brazil provides modular maintenance solutions such as roll maintenance services, roll reconditioning services and roll upgrades for all type of rolls – now also for spreader rolls.
