Helsinki, Finland 18 June 2014 -- Pankaboard announces that it will install a new dilution head box on BM3 at its Pankaboard mill in Finland.
The new head box will provide better formation and improved thickness profile for all BM3 products. Resulting improved product consistency and uniformity will offer better runnability and efficiency in customer processing. Bellmer and Tasowheel will make the installation during the annual maintenance shutdown during midsummer.
In September 2014 Pankaboard will install a full-width sheet cutter for BM3.
The new sheeting line will increase the sheeting capacity for all uncoated speciality products from BM3 at Pankaboard. This investment will benefit customers by improving lead times for uncoated sheeted products by up to 2 weeks compared to today, as well as improving quality and consistency of sheeting.
Ari Vouti, CEO, commented, “It gives me great pleasure to announce these investments to our valued customers and to confirm our commitment to providing the best quality and service possible. These investments develop our market offer and strengthen our position as the leading producer of uncoated speciality boards and high substance coated folding boxboard”.
