Schumacher Packaging is a German, family-owned company with almost 65 years of tradition. Currently, the company owns five production sites in Germany (Ebersdorf, Sonneberg, Bielefeld, Forchheim, Hauenstein) and three in Poland (Grudziądz, Bydgoszcz and Wrocław).
PMP Group's scope of delivery will include an Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox with Consistency Profiling System. The 5-channel unit, of pondside approximately 3100 mm and design speed 950 m/min, will be installed on PM#1 which is producing testliner. PMP Group will also be responsible for the unit's assembly and supervision over the machine's start-up which is scheduled for the second half of 2013.
PMP Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox is the key component of the entire Intelli-Technology® platform - designed for paper and packaging production. A headbox is considered to be the heart of a paper machine, due to its high influence on the final product parameters. Thus PMP headboxes are high-tech products that are characterized by long product life-span.
The new unit, delivered to Schumacher Packaging, will make the 93rd headbox on PMP's reference list so far.
