Plastics for efficient and reliable paper machines

The smooth operation of paper machines is essential for operators. Systems generally need to run continuously for at least 330 days a year. Unscheduled downtimes result in huge costs. Designers must therefore develop systems that are both reliable and dependable even under high loads. As innovation leader in wearing parts for the paper machine, we support you in this task: our components contribute to safe and efficient production processes right along the production chain, from preparation of the resources through suction rollers to the drying group.

Product examples


In ROBASMART, Röchling has developed a new "smart" product line for paper machines. Components such as seals and dewatering elements are fitted with sensors. These continuously supply data to the control stand of the paper machine, giving operators information about the status and condition of their systems. That means ROBASMART reduces the maintenance times and enhances the efficiency of plants. More information about Robasmart on our website

Dewatering elements

Our plastic dewatering elements are characterised first and foremost by the special sinter press procedure, a very high molecular weight and additives that are specifically tailored to paper machines. These benefits combine to ensure what is an outstanding service life for plastic coupled with a low coefficient of friction. More information about our dewatering elements can be found on the website of our subsidiary Röchling Leripa Papertech

Diffusor applications

Whether diffusor blocks, discs or tubes, our ROBATEC high-performance plastic provides perfect, precisely processed surfaces to achieve the desired deflocculation effect. It also prevents fibre adherence. More information about our diffusor applications can be found on the website of our subsidiary Röchling Leripa Papertech

Arrange technical advice

The performance and reliability of components used for paper machines are influenced by a variety of factors. These criteria need to be considered in order to make the right choice. Examples:

  • Mechanical loading
  • Thermal loading
  • Operating temperature
  • Design requirements
  • Dimensions and tolerances
