Valmet, Finland, reports that it will supply board machine key technology and machine control systems in two new containerboard machines in China. The customer remains confidential. Valmet's delivery includes headbox and press section technology and a machine control system.

The value of the order was not disclosed. However, according to Valmet, an upgrade of two lines of this scope typically is valued at EUR 20-30 million.  
"In containerboard manufacturing, headbox and press section are two of the most important key technologies to secure high production quality. Our expertise and references convinced the customer to choose Valmet," said Kari Räisänen, area sales director from Valmet. 
Valmet's delivery for the new containerboard machines will include, all together, five new OptiFlo fourdrinier headboxes for improved product quality and increased productivity and two OptiPress linear double-nip press sections with linear web run for excellent end product properties, high dewatering capacity, and good runnability.
