Comment Print

Graz, Austria, 30 June 2010 -- The Pulp & Paper business area of international technology Group Andritz has received an order to rebuild the drying section of PM 2 at Smurfit Kappa’s Hoya mill in Germany. Start-up of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for February 2011.


PM 2 is a testliner and fluting machine with a working width of 7.6 m at the reel and a production speed of 1100 m/min. Following the rebuild of the drying section, the drying wire tension will increase to 4.5 N/mm and the grouping will be changed. Four drying cylinders will be relocated from the after-drying section to the pre-drying section. The web run in the first drying section (single-tier) will be enhanced with web stabilizing systems. The web run of the double-tier drying group will be optimized with specially positioned guiding rolls. In the second drying group, high-vacuum boxes will be installed to improve web transfer from the cylinder. Additionally, a new drying hood will be supplied.


Andritz also recently received an order to supply a compact film press for Smurfit Kappa’s Hoya mill. The film press will have a working width of 7.6 m, a roll width of 7.9 m, and a design speed of 1200 m/min.  The scope of supply also includes an air glide system and a threading system. Start-up is scheduled for February 2011.
