TISSUE PAPER TRENDS
The Bolzoni Auramo Tissue paper roll clamps have higher and wider contact pads to reduce surface pressure on the soft paper.
The global Tissue Paper market
is constantly evolving and it is expected to significantly grow, also due to emerging Countries demand, in the next years. Especially at this time in history, tissue paper products
play an important role in modern life: demand peaks and the need to supply greener products are two of the growth drivers in this sector.
Likewise, the need for safe and damage-free paper products handling is in focus.
To come up with innovative solutions for the forest products handling Bolzoni Auramo
has been closely cooperating with the paper industry worldwide, over the last 75 years, and is participating from the 13th to the 15th of October in the International exhibition MIAC.
"We are looking forward to meet the paper production and tissue converting company specialists, coming together to share sector news," says Paolo Chiesi, Bolzoni Italia Srl Managing Director.
The MIAC International exhibition
is dedicated to paper and paperboard production, as well as to the Tissue paper converting companies and will be held in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. Known as one of the main Paper Districts in Europe, the Lucca district counts on a turnover of 3.5 billion Euros, with 2.000.000 tons of paper and cardboard produced (tissue paper and corrugated cardboard) and over 140 Paper Mills and Converters.
THE RIGHT CLAMP FOR TISSUE PAPER ROLLS
Tissue paper rolls need big surface clamp pads to prevent roll damage.
Bolzoni Auramo, market leader in sales of paper handling tools in Europe, created a complete range of well-designed and strong tissue paper roll clamps
with capacities starting from 1.500 kg up to 6.000 kg (3,000 to 13,000 lbs.) and with roll diameters up to 2.700 mm (106") in standard series.
"Bolzoni Auramo Tissue Roll Clamp is not a converted standard paper roll clamp," says Lars Petersson, "we design our Tissue Roll Clamp in every detail, from the ground, to be able to offer our customers efficient and damage-free tissue roll handling." Lars is the Forest Products Specialist inside the Bolzoni Group.
A dedicated tissue paper roll clamp
has several advantages over a standard one when handling tissue paper grades. Tissue clamps are always built to be able to handle large diameter rolls; they also have higher and wider contact pads to reduce surface pressure on the soft paper.
DESIGNED AND DEDICATED CLAMP: AR-RT TISSUE PAPER ROLL SERIES
The AR-RT series clamps
are designed and developed to have superior visibility, great rotating speed and to be operator-friendly. Its main features:
- Higher and wider contact pads to reduce surface pressure on the soft paper
- Rotating paper roll clamp for vertical and horizontal roll handling
- Arms and contact pads have smooth rounded surfaces and corners all around to reduce the possibility for the clamp damaging the roll
- Effective and robust 180-degree rack-and-pinion rotation system. Hydraulic cushioning in the vertical end position
- All hydraulic functions protected with built-in pressure relief valves
- Flat spot compensation
- Built-in pad and arm protection
The minimized pad thickness ensures good knifing properties when handling tightly stacked and bilge rolls and pad corners have large radius design, without protruding parts or edges.
Bolzoni Auramo knows that contact pads
are the most important part of the clamp attachment. In most normal handling situations, the pads are the only parts of the clamp that actually are in contact with the paper roll. Therefore, Bolzoni Auramo has paid special attention in designing and manufacturing contact pads, which will ensure safe and non-damaging tissue roll handling. Tissue clamp contact pads have a wide area and specialized pad friction surface selected to match the operation requirements. Depending on the clamp size and application requirements, Bolzoni Auramo offers three contact pad models for tissue clamps:
BOLZONI AURAMO IS ON THE CUTTING EDGE: PARTNER IN AGV AUTOMATED SOLUTIONS
- Single Radius Pads for hard and medium-hard Tissue paper grades.
Single radius pads are designed to match the varying roll diameters. Best suited for hard or medium-hard paper grades.
- Triple Radius Pads for hard, medium-hard and soft Tissue paper grades, especially on larger roll diameters.
Triple radius pads have convex upper, lower and side edges. This prevents the pad edges from cutting into the paper. These pads are suitable for all types of Tissue paper, also for medium-soft and soft paper.
- Convex Radius Pads for very soft and hard-to-handle large diameter rolls.
Heavy convex pads have a special form, which convexes outwards throughout the entire pad length. This enables the pad to compress the top layers of the Tissue paper roll and increase the grip. Suitable for very soft paper grades only.

The new challenge for companies that want to embrace the Industry 4.0 philosophy is automation
. Bolzoni invests in the development of products dedicated to Automated Guided Vehicles: even in the handling of tissue paper rolls Bolzoni Auramo designs dedicated equipment
, with sensors managed directly from the AGV system control center.
Also, in the handling of paper rolls and pulp bales, many companies are equipping themselves with AGVs," says Paolo Chiesi, Bolzoni Italia Sales and Managing Director. ''We are in contact and cooperate with the main Italian and European AGV manufacturers, and together we design dedicated attachments".
