Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Munksjö, Sweden, this week inaugurates a new crepe machine at its production facility in Jönköping, Sweden. The mill is part of Munksjö’s business area Industrial Applications. The new machine extends the company’s electrotechnical paper product offering. 

Electrotechnical paper is mainly used in the electric transmission and distribution industry. The new machine will enable Munksjö to better meet both current and future customer needs in addition to the wide range of insulating kraft paper products already offered and supplied. 

The new crepe machine will double Munksjö’s production capacity of electrotechnical insulating crepe kraft paper and will be the only machine in the world able to produce up to 3,000 mm in width. The paper is mainly used in the bushing industry. The investment is part of the business area’s strategic development plan. 

"Through the inauguration of the new machine, we continue to lead innovations in the technology of insulating paper. Munksjö has always been at the forefront of innovation within specialty paper, which has been enabled through our own production of specialty pulp for electrical insulation." said Martin Lundqvist, president, Electrotechnical Paper. 

Munksjö began manufacturing electrotechnical paper in 1909 and since then has developed many innovative products for the electric transmission and distribution industry. Today, Munksjö’s paper is used on all continents—in submarine cables at the bottom of the English Channel, in the deserts of Saudi Arabia, and in South America's hydroelectric plants. 

Munksjö’s electrotechnical papers are advanced paper products and the customer requirements are individual. There are no standard products in Munksjö’s offering and the electrotechnical paper is manufactured and converted according to specific customer needs and also fulfills the requirements of relevant international standards.
