In 2014, Hansol Daejeon rebuilt its PM 31 board machine with OptiDry Coat air drying technology. Thanks to the excellent results, Hansol decided to perform a similar upgrade on its PM 32 board machine in 2015. Besides energy savings, Hansol has also seen improvements on their FBB quality; printability is good and visual appearance has improved. Furthermore, runnability has improved and the “folding” effect reduced.
