Finland’s Pankaboard invests in new equipment at its Pankakoski mill

June 18, 2014 - 22:40

BRUSSELS, June 19, 2014 (PPI Europe) -Specialty board company Pankaboard has invested in a new headbox and sheeter its Pankakoski mill in Finland in order to improve product quality and customer service. The value of the order was
not disclosed.

Bellmer Vaahto and Tasowheel will install the new dilution headbox on the 40,000 tonne/yr specialty board BM 3 during the plant's midsummer downtime.

"The new head box will provide better formation and improved thickness profile for all BM3 products," Pankaboard said in a statement.

In September, the firm also plans to install a new full-width sheet cutter for BM 3. "This investment will benefit customers by improving lead times for uncoated sheeted products by up to two weeks compared to today, as well as improving quality and consistency of sheeting," the firm said.

The Pankakoski mill produces approximately 100,000 tonnes/yr of folding boxboard and specialty board on two machines.
