With its newly installed in-house pilot plant, SAUERESSIG Surfaces offers its customers the opportunity to test the properties and performance of tissue products under realistic operating conditions at the company’s Mönchengladbach site.

Opening new market opportunities with low investment risk – this is one of the greatest benefits pilot plants have to offer. This way it is possible to develop prototypes with various technical properties and to test new designs in the tissue segment before manufacturing the actual production roller.

Focused on high product quality, SAUERESSIG’s new pilot plant is fitted with modern technology. With a production speed of up to 650m/min and equipped with three unwinders, it also impresses with a high degree of efficiency. Embossing technologies, including nested and top-to-top as well as pre-embossing, are also made possible by the new pilot plant. In addition, gluing of the front and back sheet can be easily implemented thanks to two existing gluing units.

“We are highly pleased that the first successful tests involving tissue applications have taken place at our SAUERESSIG Mönchengladbach site”, says Andreas Greving, Sales Manager Tissue, “and we are looking forward to further developments, test series and Research Programms in the near future.“
