The Bellmer TurboCalender is a high-class unit to provide best smoothness, caliper, and bulk on your paper machine. The TurboCalender improves surfaces by calendering on any paper grade from paper, board to specialty paper or non-woven. Our “hard” or “soft nip” calenders are an essential component of the paper machine, influencing factors such as smoothness, gloss and CD thickness.

Bellmer GapCon’s calenders are custom built to meet each customer’s requirements yet using standardized equipment. We help you to chose the right combination of single or multiple nips, hard or soft calenders. In pilot tests, we predict best line load, roll cover and temperature requirements.
With the wide range of our TurboRoll series (classic swimming roll with/without control of edge zones or multi-zone roll) and our heated roll
TurboRoll VT, we chose the right tools to succeed on your targets and budget. Where a TurboRoll MZ roll (multi-zone) type is chosen, the controls can be linked to a QCS system for automatic caliper adjustment in closed-loop operation. In addition to the calender, all necessary auxiliary systems such as hydraulic unit, lubrication system, and heating unit can be supplied. A rope-less tail threading system, vacuum belt type, is available as well.
