Andritz paper machine for Heinzel Group

Andritz Pulp & Paper has started up a rebuilt PM10 machine at the paper mill of the Heinzel Group at Laakirchen in Austria.

The machine that originally produced SC paper was converted to a fluting and testliner machine producing basis weights ranging from 70 to 140 g/m² based on recycled fibers. With a design speed of 1,600 m/min and a working width of 7,500 mm, it is now one of the world’s most productive paper machines for fluting and testliners. “In addition to our PM11, which will continue producing paper for the high-quality SC market, the PM10 produces 450,000 t/y of fluting and testliners,” says Thomas Welt, production director at Laakirchen Papier AG.
In the stock preparation section, the Andritz scope of supply comprises a complete OCC line with a capacity of 1,350 t/d, rebuild of the existing paper machine approach flow system, as well as sludge and reject handling. The pulping system with detrashing includes a 130 m³ FibreSolve FSR pulper, which is the largest low-consistency pulper Andritz has ever installed in Europe.
