AALEN, Germany, Aug. 5, 2019 (Press Release) -PM 2 at the Aalen paper mill was installed in 1983 as a swing machine for Newsprint and recycled corrugated base paper.

Its flexibility was due to two independent flows of pulp. The continuously reduced demand for Newsprint has forced Palm to convert the papermachine to RCCM. Here the focus lies on light weight grades. Paper supply for customers in Newsprint is covered by the modern high performance machines in Eltmann (PM 1 and PM 3) and King’s Lynn (PM 7).
