KCL Calender is designed to meet the demands of most challenging and modern calendering trials. At KCL an entire process called Multical has been constructed around calendering trials. Multical process starts by setting the targets with the customer resulting with an in-depth analysis of the findings obtained.

Multical is used for evaluation of paper and raw material potential and also to evaluate the effects of different calendering variables. Multical can be used both for finishing purposes after a coating or papermaking trial and also for R&D purposes in specially designed calendering trials.
