Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

A newsprint machine at the Rhein Papier Hürth mill in Germany has set a new world newsprint speed record. The No. 1 machine (PM 1) at Myllykoski-owned Rhein Papier Hürth recently reached 24 hours at 2,020 m/min—a new world speed record in newsprint production.

PM1's average speed for the month was 1,937 meters per minute, according to the company.

Myllykoski operates seven paper mills in Finland, Germany, and the U.S., with a total annual capacity of close to three million tons.
