Metso will rebuild an off-machine coater of the coated wood-free paper production line at the Changhang mill of Hansol Paper Co. Ltd. in South Korea.
"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
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.
