Metso to Supply Coater Rebuild to South Korea Papermaker
"The main target of the rebuild is to convert the production line to produce also thermal paper grades. As a result of the rebuild, the mill will be capable of flexibly changing production between coated wood-free grades and thermal paper grades," says Pekka Turtinen, Metso’s senior sales manager.
The order consists of a curtain coating unit, a soft calender, a reel and a moisturizer for curl control. The curtain coating unit applies a thin thermal coating layer on the web in a non-contacting operation.
The rebuilt production line will be fully operational during 2013. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
