Laakirchen Papier to invest 4.5 million Euro in PM11
In 2019, Laakirchen Papier is to invest roughly EUR 4.5 million in the paper machine PM 11, which manufactures SC papers. 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 June 2019.
