Valmet will supply paper machine modifications and a new winder to Laakirchen Papier AG in Austria. Laakirchen Papier will convert its paper machine 10 (PM 10) to produce lightweight containerboard. Currently PM 10 is producing publication paper. The start-up of the paper machine and the winder is scheduled for the autumn of 2017. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The value of an order of this type is typically Euro 5-10 million.
Valmet's delivery includes a press section upgrade, relocation and modification of the existing reel and one OptiWin Drumtwo-drum winder. The winder is equipped with Dual Unwind, which is Valmet's new two-unwind system. This new feature makes it possible to change the parent roll in only one minute.
The 7,500 mm wide (reel) PM 10 will produce containerboard products with a basis weight range of 70 g/m2 upwards. After the full extension, the annual production of PM 10 will reach 450,000 tonnes.
Laakirchen Papier produces SC paper, a high-gloss publication paper for magazines, catalogues and printed advertising material.
