Pulp & Paper
The pulp and paper industry has been amongst Avweld’s primary focuses for 30 years. As the industry faces ever-increasing cost pressures in the face of overseas competition and a high Australian dollar, the emphasis becomes more and more on increasing productivity and lowering costs. Avweld have incorporated a full range of wear-prevention technologies to service every component of pulp and paper mills right from wood-chip through to converting and finishing lines.
Avweld are commited to offering a one-stop service shop for paper mill rollers, as part of our Total Roll Solutions brand. The centrepiece of this service is the application of DuraTrax super-polymer roll covers. In addition to this Avweld provide journal and shaft repair of all rolls where required, roll grinding and roll balancing.
Avweld’s engineers are a regular presence on site at Australia’s paper mills, offering expert advice on life-extension and maintenance of major components such as pulper rotors, screens, vacuum pumps, shaft repairs, primary, secondary and tertiary pulper and screen housing repairs and hardfacing.
