Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Kolicevo Karton, Slovenia, will rebuild the wet section (wire and press section) of board machine KM 2. The rebuild, to be conducted by Andritz, Graz, Austria, is designed to increase production from the current maximum of 140 m/min to 200 m/min, as well as to improve the quality of the folded boxboard (GC grade). Startup is scheduled for this December.

Andritz Pulp & Paper will supply a headbox (PrimeFlow SW), a fourdrinier wire section (PrimeForm SW), and a shoe press (PrimePress X). The machine's cylinder mold formers will be replaced with a new fourdrinier wire with an Andritz hybrid former (PrimeForm HB). The existing wet section (including the press section) will be relocated to make room for additional drying cylinders to increase performance.

Kolicevo Karton is a member of the Mayr-Melnhof Group, the largest producer of folded boxboard in Europe and a leading producer of coated recovered cartonboard worldwide.
