Laakirchen Papier to invest Euro 4.5 million in PM 11

21 December 2018

In 2019, Laakirchen Papier is to invest roughly Euro 4.5 million in the paper machine PM 11, which manufactures SC papers, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

In order to achieve further process optimization at higher speeds, the paper web is to be stabilized at the drying section inlet. This will be achieved through the installation of new stabilizer boxes and in addition, the current reel changing system is to be replaced by a superior solution from Voith.

Apart from the aforementioned modifications, considerable investments in electronic components are also planned with the aim of ensuring future plant availability. The realization of the PM 11 conversion work will necessitate a roughly 4-day shutdown, which will take place in the first week of July 2019.

Laakirchen Papier AG which is located in Laakirchen, Austria, specialises in the production and further development of super calendered, uncoated papers (SC papers) and and lightweight containerboard on the European market.
