    Paper Services

    Altering reel widths, dividing reels to multiple webs and cutting reels to sheets are all parts of our Service offer. The converting services are offered on-site, at one of our plants, or off-site, at customer chosen locations across Europe.

    On-site Services

    The on-site Services offered at our operative units in The Netherlands, Finland, and UK consist of rewinding, reSizing and sheeting. Resizing is also carried out at our own premises in Germany, Spain and Belgium.

    Off-site Services

    The off-site Services comprise of activities carried out at customer’s own premises or any other third party location. These external – also known as Mobile – services are reducing reel width, dividing webs to many and reel repair services. There is also a supplementary core insert program for reducing the core size.

    The off site services are available throughout Europe.

    Rewinding

    The most common reasons for rewinding are:

    • Change of diameter
    • Change of core
    • Change of winding direction
    • Production of multiple webs (down to 5 cm reel width)
    • Replacing a damaged or crushed core
    • Quality control e.g. removing unmade splices

    Our Jagenberg Varitop and Valmet rewinders are capable of handling a great variety of paper and board grades. The processed goods are finished off with integrated packing lines that deliver mill standard packing with customizable labels and bar codes.

    Our rewinding service is offered in Finland, the Netherlands and United Kingdom.
