Metso Paper has inaugurated a manufacturing line for screen baskets in Wai Gao Qiao Free Trade Zone of Shanghai, China, on April 26. The new line will manufacture Nimax screen baskets, which are based on the modern wedge-wire technology. The line, located in the Metso Logistics Center facilities, will strengthen Metso Paper's customer service in the Asian market by shorter delivery times. The first Nimax screen basket manufactured in Wai Gao Qiao was handed over to its orderer as part of the inauguration ceremony.

Nimax screen baskets were introduced to the market in 2004. They provide increased production capacity and improved pulp quality. The new baskets, with excellent dynamic strength, also feature a long lifetime and reduced screening costs. The modern manufacturing facilities and Metso Paper's extensive screening know-how guarantee that Nimax screen baskets fulfill the quality and performance requirements. The Nimax technology serves also as a platform for Metso Paper's future screen basket products.
