Guarneri Technology signed an agreement with Voith to acquire Voith Paper Walztechnik AG.  With Voith Paper Walztechnik, a long-standing provider of NipcoTM roll systems and solutions for industrial applications, Guarneri Technology strengthens its position as a leading calender supplier.


“Voith NipcoTM rolls have been installed in Guarneri calender systems for many years. Not only in the textile and technical textile sector, but also in the special application industries, customers worldwide rely on the combined competence. This strategic step is therefore the logical consequence of a very good cooperation and will bring many advantages for our customers,” states Ettore Guarneri, CEO of Guarneri Technology.

Voith Paper Walztechnik offers a high-value portfolio of optimized and customized solutions for a wide range of individual tailored NipcoTMroll calender applications in the field of finishing textiles and technical textiles, printing floor coverings or magazines from rolling steel plates or aluminium to milling foodstuffs. The use of NipcoTM roll systems allow the user to set individual forces in the nip. Depending on the roll design, operation with parallel nip is possible, i.e. the deflection of the NipcoTM roll precisely matches that of the counter roll. Likewise, these roll types are suitable for non-woven applications, such as thermal bonding. A NipcoTM roll system can usually be retrofitted into an existing system without major conversion effort, creating an almost endless list of applications for this roll system. All of these technologies are supported with expert services and application support.


“We are excited about this opportunity. Guarneri Technology is a well-respected player in the international calender industry and our partner since more than 20 years offering our NipcoTM rollers with their systems.

As part of Guarneri Technology, we will be able to offer our employees and customers more opportunities and support Guarneri’s growth”, says Harald Gruber, Managing Director at Voith Paper Walztechnik AG.
