Customer case:

Valmet supplied BM10 succesfully started-up at Liansheng Paper Longhai site

In the fall of 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, Liansheng Paper started up successfully and smoothly their Valmet-supplied BM10 board making line at their Longhai site. Since the start-up BM10 has been running stabily and is producing 125–230 g/m2 white top kraft liner. The whole production line has achieved very low levels of water, electricity, and gas consumption for the industry.

Despite the 100 percent domestic OCC with poor fiber quality we’re currently using, BM10 makes up for the disadvantage of the raw material due to the special design of its press section, enabling us to maintain the efficient high-speed production of lightweight products.

With the hood’s outstanding energy-saving effect, BM10 is superior to other machines in terms of steam consumption. The sizer also performs well, with precise sizing control, a wide adjustment range, high controllability, and a long-life sizing rod. The reel runs more smoothly than its predecessors and has a high turn-up efficiency, which improves our productivity.

The winder is amazing! It’s the first time Liansheng has attempted to match a paper machine with only one winder, and the result is better than expected. The automatic set change saves labor and enhances efficiency.”

Delivery Scope


OptiConcept M - sustainable papermaking

OptiConcept M is the paper machine of the future. Suits containerboard, carton board, and fine paper production.

OptiPress Linear

OptiPress Linear, a double-nip press section with shoe press and a linear web run, is an ideal solution to fulfill papermakers’ requirements for effective wet pressing. Runnability bottlenecks have been removed with intelligent design - using shoe press technology, full-width tail threading, and having no open draws.

OptiSizer Film sizing

OptiSizer Film offers a functional and innovative design, based on know-how and long experience. Its simple and reliable design results in easy operation, installation and fast initial start-up.

OptiReel Linear reeling

OptiReel Linear is a completely new way to reel paper machine parent rolls. Instead of having a high structure reel spool storage and lowering arms, reel spools and parent rolls are moved on solid rails resulting in a continuous and trouble-free reeling process.

Dual Unwind for high-capacity winding

Dual Unwind is a fast way to make a parent roll change at winder. Double unwinding gives more production and higher winding capacity. Proven technology with a solid 10-year track record with over 50 references!
