APP Jingui BM2: Valmet-supplied technology helps the company meet its goals for low-carbon operations

APP Jingui BM2 is a complete large-scale high-speed production line for coated white cardboard. Valmet delivered and integrated every part of the line, helping APP reach their goals of low-carbon production, and environmentally efficient and sustainable operations.

BM2 is superior in energy and raw material efficiency, and product quality. It’s usually pretty difficult for high-speed paper machines to produce lightweight white cardboards. But BM2 produces high-quality lightweight products. Our end customers praise its interlayer bond, flatness, web uniformity, printability and bulk. We’ve now switched to using BM2 to produce both food-level and non-coated food-level cardboards. BM2 has clearly demonstrated its competitive advantage."
Francisco Razzolini, Director of Industrial Technology, Innovation, Sustainability and Pulp Business, Klabin
Having a single supplier with the capability to deliver a full range of technologies and automation allowed the systems to be perfectly coordinated. This resulted in a significant increase in our return on investment and minimized the line’s environmental impact."
Jiang Peng, Global Technology and R&D General Manager, APP
APP Group attaches great importance to environmental protection and always follows high environmental standards during supplier selection and project execution. We were really impressed with Valmet's focus on environmental efficiency and the smooth project implementation."

Solution

APP Jingui BM2 is a complete large-scale high-speed production line for coated white cardboard. Valmet delivered and integrated every part of the line, helping APP reach their goals of low-carbon production, and environmentally efficient and sustainable operations.

- A high-speed coated board making line from broke collection to reel and winders.

- Wide automation package

- Comprehensive Paper Machine Clothingspare parts and consumables packages

- The start-up and the further optimization of the new board machine were supported remotely from Valmet Performance Center utilizing the latest Industrial Internet solutions.

Results

APP Jingui BM2 has been a success from the moment it started up on December 8, 2021. It took only three hours to achieve a smooth start-up in the uncoated section – from the stock entering the headbox to leaving the pre-calender. And, just four days later, the machine was producing salable Grade-A coated white cardboard that hit all targets, with low weight, high bulk and flatness. BM2 had an excellent start-up curve, reaching an operating speed of 1,050 m/min in the first month, and over 1,300 m/min just a few months later.
