Schumacher Packaging has commissioned Voith to rebuild PM 2 at its Myszków site in Poland. The line is scheduled to start up again in mid-2023 after a short rebuild period. After the rebuild, the line will double its production capacity of light weight containerboard from 500 to 1000 tons per day. As part of the rebuild scope, Voith will upgrade the OCC stock preparation with technologies from the BlueLine portfolio, and the paper machine will be extensively modernized with state-of-the-art machine concepts and a new VariFlex NG highperformance winder.
The full-line supplier Voith is placing a special focus on high availability, technological efficiency, process stability and sustainability with the lowest possible energy balance for the plant. In addition, Schumacher Packaging benefits from simple and safe operation of the machines, as well as the extensive technological knowledge of Voith experts. Another focus will be on minimizing the maintenance and servicing effort.
On the paper machine, the wire section will be rebuilt to a DuoFormer D and equipped with a new MasterJet Pro-F/B headbox and a DuoShake DG 800 to ensure the best possible quality in regards of profiles and paper strength. In addition, the press section will be renewed and equipped with Voith´s Tandem NipcoFlex technology, which significantly increases the dry content and capacity and reduces specific steam consumption. The fully automatic VariFlex winder uses proven technology and ensures stable winding quality at maximum speed thanks to an integrated drive control system and unique hydrodynamic vibration damping system.
