ESSITY selects OVERMADE for the supply of Yankee gearboxes for the PM3 Tissue machine in Lucca 1 (Italy) and for the PM2 Tissue Machine in Oakenholt (UK).
The new gearboxes are going to substitute the original OVERMeccanica gearboxes supplied during the 90s and that worked for 25 years “practically without maintenance” as reported by the mill. The selection of the OVERMADE gearbox has been done also considering the already experienced performances in terms of energy saving.

PM1 in Oakenholt (UK) is a 2800 mm paper width OVER CR C18 tissue machine equipped with a 12 foot Yankee and designed for 1600 mpm.
