Voith Paper Board Machine Installed at Mayr-Melnhof
Comment Print
Heidenheim, Germany, 03 August 2010 -- On 18 June 2010, Mayr-Melnhof's board machine BM 3 in Frohnleiten, Austria, was successfully put back into operation after the rebuild by Voith Paper. At 8:15 a.m., production was changed from air knife operation to curtain coating. The main reason for the rebuild was the speed limitation caused by the air knife.

Thus, Mayr-Melnhof operates the world's first board machine using curtain coating for online graphic coat application in continuous operation.

BM 3 started with 550 m/min and a basis weight of 250 g/m2. The board produced was of superior, salable quality right from the first parent roll.

All the project targets were met from the start, resulting in a higher quality product as a result of improved and homogeneous coverage. The amount of energy used for drying has been reduced considerably due to the much higher solids content. In addition, enhanced flatness ensures excellent runnability and a higher productivity of the machine, thus allowing to overcome the previous speed limit.

Voith Paper is a division of the Voith Group and the leading partner to and a pioneer in the paper industry. Through constant innovations, Voith Paper is optimizing the paper production process, focusing on the development of resource-saving products to reduce the use of energy, water, and fibers.

Voith was established on 01 January 1867, and serves the paper, energy, mobility, and service markets. The company currently has 39,000 employees, EUR 5 billion in sales, and more than 280 locations worldwide.
