Perfect forming solution for lightweight containerboard making

OptiFormer Gap for board

OptiFormer Gap forming section with roll and blade technology is an optimal concept for lightweight recycled fiber-based fluting and linerboard for high-speed applications.

Valmet's OptiFormer Gap for board provides:

• Uniform visual appearance of the end product 

• Good strength properties and uniform CD profiles

• Excellent formation

• High-speed potential 

• High drainage capacity 

 

High production efficiency and quality

High capacity at a high speed is the key feature of efficient lightweight containerboard manufacturing. Good runnability is a prerequisite.

The paper must be produced with less and/or lower quality raw material, it must be strong and visually attractive, and perform well in corrugators.

 

Low operating costs

OptiFormer Gap is an energy-efficient concept that provides also raw material savings through lightweight production from recycled raw materials. The forming concept is designed for efficient maintenance operations providing a safe working environment.

 

 

OptiFormer Gap for board forming sections are running with excellent results at many mills, for example at Saica's PM11, Propapier's PM2 and Mondi's ECO7.
