Roll Wrapping and Handling System

Wickliffe, KY

Industry: Pulp and Paper

Project Scope

CR Meyer was the general contractor responsible for the installation of a new Metso StreamLine Pro wrapping and handling system. Constructability reviews were held early in the project to reduce potential risks due to subgrade ground water. Minimizing the foundation pit depths reduced costs and eliminated the risks associated with dewatering the site. The fully automated roll wrapping and handling system included a modularized high capacity StreamLine Pro kraft roll wrapper with four industrial robots. The new conveyor system collects rolls from the paper machine and the off-machine coater areas and brings them to the new wrapper. After rolls are wrapped and labeled, they are moved to either the “in process” area or shipping warehouse. All actuators are electric or pneumatic.

Our crews were responsible for the demolition and excavation required to prepare the existing building for the new installation. We also installed the concrete foundations, equipment, and piping for the new wrapping and handling system.

 

The quality of work and management helped these start-ups set a new benchmark for the machines. CR Meyer demonstrated their ability to be the general contractor of major installations by quickly resolving any subcontractor trades or billing issues and coordinating multiple disciplines in a limited work space.
