PM 10 at Heinzel's Laakirchen mill will be standing still for ten weeks as from August 2017. The company will then start conversion work on the machine to produce corrugated case material in the future.
Valmet has received an order from Heinzel for conversion work on the PM 10 of Laakirchen Papier. According to EUWID information, the paper mill will discontinue current production of SC paper on PM 10 in mid-August 2017 and then switch the machine to corrugated case material production. The conversion is expected to take roughly ten weeks.
Laakirchen Papier says that the purpose of the investment is to broaden its own range of products in a growing market segment. The converted machine is scheduled to be put into operation in autumn 2017.
