Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Propapier, Germany, reportedly has set a new 24-hr world speed record for containerboard machines, running its No. 2 Eisenhüttenstadt, Germany, unit at 1,620 m/min on November 25. PM 2, supplied by Metso, Finland, started up only eight months earlier, and became the world's first containerboard machine to exceed the 1,600 m/min speed level. The Metso machine is 10.85 meters wide and produced 2,049 tons of corrugating medium at a machine efficiency of 93.8% during the record time.
