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.
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.
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.
Energy saving potential of OptiFormer Gap for board.
A giant was born when Bohui started their new containerboard machine BM 6 – the widest and largest of its kind in Asia. The initial start-up and machine optimization have been supported by global experts from Valmet’s Performance Center.
Asia Symbol Paper's two Valmet paper machines, PM11 and PM12 set a reference quality level for the global and Asian markets. Xinhui PM12 is equipped with the latest technology like shoe and blade forming technology to create a competitive edge for Asia Symbol in the future.
Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing started up their new Valmet-supplied containerboard production line (PM 20) at Chongqing site, China in 2014. The production line produces high-quality board grades from recycled raw material with excellent strength properties.
Świecie PM 7 in Poland, which produced its first reel on 2009, is Mondi’s response to the growing trend towards lightweight corrugated case material. In PM 7 economy has been designed to meet ecology: maximum product quality is achieved with minimum environmental impact.
