Customer case:

Schumacher Poledno achieving higher corrugator productivity with Valmet IQ Moisturizer

Aug 8, 2018

Schumacher Poledno in Poland is part of Schumacher Packaging Group, one of the largest family-run manufacturers of corrugated and solid boards with 15 plants at 13 locations in Germany, Poland and the Netherlands. In August 2017, a two beam Valmet IQ Moisturizer system was successfully started-up to control warp on Poledno’s 2.8-meter-wide production line.

We have a very good customer requiring heavy grades of board and the Valmet IQ moisturizer is the key tool in keeping them satisfied. The moisturizer has enabled us to expand our product offering and today, ten percent of production is heavier grades. Compared to earlier we are more flexible, we have less waste and higher machine speed resulting in more production, a pretty good outcome.
