Metso to supply a metsoDNA control system to Sappi’s Stockstadt mill in Germany

Published Apr 5, 2011 09.00.00 +2 GMT

Metso will supply a modern metsoDNA control system to the Metso/Valmet winder type JR 1000 delivered to Sappi Fine Paper’s Stockstadt mill in Germany in 1992. The system upgrade will enable adapting production line No. 2 at the Stockstadt mill to the constantly changing market requirements. In order to adjust to the increasingly stringent safety requirements and bring the JR 1000 winder on the newest level of safety engineering, modifications will also be made in the winder’s safety devices and its surroundings.

The rebuild is planned for summer and fall of 2011.
