Proven & Reliable Technology

BW Papersystems has built and installed the Vanguard Singlefacer over 350 times, satisfying all market demands. This pressure roll singlefacer is a proven high-speed runner used in the most productive plants in many integrated companies. It includes a pressure chamber blower system, and large accessible windows and doors for optimal performance and easy maintenance.

Maximum Productivity & Durability

BW Papersystems’ Vanguard Singlefacer has hydraulically-loaded corrugating rolls and a pressure roll to maintain high-speed stability with minimal operator adjustment. The driven pressure roll eliminates shear stress during the green bond formation for maximum board strength. United Container, one of the BW Papersystems legendary brands, pioneered the positive pressure fingerless technology to eliminate vacuum systems that are sensitive to debris.

Infusion Medium Pre-Conditioning

The BW Papersystems’ Vanguard Singlefacer uses our patented Infusion technology that conditions the medium by penetrating the medium’s fibers with moisture and heat like no other system. This allows higher run speeds and improves board quality. In addition, it is effective for all flute profiles and paper grades.

Unique Split Frame Design

BW Papersystems’ Vanguard Singlefacer has a unique split frame design that includes a roll-out glue section for more efficient maintenance. The design also allows unrestricted access to the machine’s interior and incorporates a corrugated roll cart and module for more effective flute changes.

Automatic or Quick roll change

The corrugating rolls are housed in a cassette that can be changed through two systems. The ARS (Automatic Roll Change System) provides a hands-off cassette change that is safe, easy and quick. The QRS (Quick Roll Change System) requires some operator involvement but no manual tools during the simple, efficient roll change procedure.

Medium pre-conditioning

No other singlefacer conditions medium as effectively as the Vanguard. The patented Infusion™ system penetrates the medium’s paper fibers with moisture and heat like no other system. This allows higher run speeds and improves board quality. Aseparate capstan roll system provides precise tension control and an optional steam chest provides additional conditioning for the most challenging mediums in the industry.
