With our effective machines and plants for the drying of wallpapers you will achieve optimal results. Temperature stability and constant air velocities have the highest priority for uniform and gentle drying. In the development phase, we use computer simulations as well as trials with dryers in our technical centre for your project.

The working widths of our energy-efficient drying systems are 1,200 millimeters, the production speeds 60 to 80 meters per minute. To ensure the consistent drying quality of your wallpaper, our systems guarantee maximum temperature accuracy across the entire product width - with the highest repeat accuracy.

Depending on the product, you can choose between upper air systems or a combined upper and lower air system for high performance with large coating weights. Your systems are particularly flexible with independently adjustable recirculation and exhaust air control.
