Packaging Paper Machines
The range of use of packaging papers
In an era of growing e-commerce, packaging paper is becoming increasingly important. As a full-line supplier for packaging paper machines we provide efficient yet resource-conserving solutions, such as production based on 100 percent recovered paper.
Together with board, packaging paper constitutes the largest portion of packaging material, even more than glass, metal or plastic. It is multi-purpose, clean and flexible.
Packaging accounts for about half of all worldwide paper consumption
Among the types of packaging paper are all kinds of corrugated cardboard, kraft paper for paper bags and classic brown packaging paper, as well as the cover layers of plasterboard. As a rule, a high portion of recovered paper is common to all of them. They perform important functions in merchandise management: protection from damage during transport and storage, as information carriers or purely for image enhancement.
For this reason, the quality and functionality requirements that packaging paper has to meet differ widely. Generally, worldwide demand for paper, cardboard and paperboard for packaging applications is rising steadily. Nowadays, packaging accounts for about half of all worldwide paper consumption.
At the same time, the industry is facing the challenge of constantly having to adapt packaging papers to current trends in design, ecological compatibility, protective and advertising functions. In the process, numerous conditions have to be considered, such as the suitability and compatibility of the materials for the packaged goods, statutory regulations on hygiene, packaging regulation provisions, marketing aspects, and of course, cost. In this context, we work with our customers to provide tailor-made solutions for each application.
We are experts for packaging paper machines
As a single-source supplier for packaging paper machines, we also focus on efficient and resource-conserving solutions, such as production based on 100 percent recovered paper. By working closely with our customers, we repeatedly achieve breakthroughs in machine speed and grammage. For our customers, this has a clear economic benefit, as more goods can be produced in a shorter time.
Engineered for success
From newsprint to packaging paper: Voith and LEIPA set new benchmark with the PM 5 in Schwedt
In Schwedt, Voith has converted the LEIPA Group’s PM 5 from a newsprint to a packaging paper machine. On 19 April 2018, the acceptance and handover of the machine of the Schwedt PM 5 project was signed early at LEIPA Georg Leinfelder GmbH, with effect on 13 April. As a result, the Voith team on site managed to bring the entire machine, consisting of a BlueLine OCC stock preparation line, DIP stock preparation line and XcelLine paper machine up to handover quality just 19 days after ‘stock on wire’.
The huge growth in online commerce has boosted the demand for packaging materials of all types. XcelLine, the new generation of paper machines by Voith, is the key to building an optimized, sustainable supply chain. On a global scale.
Schoellershammer PM 6 gets off to a great start
Rebuild project Jass Schwarza PM 1
Production increase thanks to web stabilization and "Clean Design"
In September 2015, Voith rebuilt the dryer section of PM 1 at the Adolf Jass paper mill in Schwarza / Rudolstadt. The aim of the rebuild was to increase the maximum production speed for low grammages from 1,400 to 1,500 m/min and at the same time maintain the already excellent machine efficiency.
Services and products for papermaking
As a system vendor we aim to support our customers throughout the entire value creation process, so we are expanding our service locations worldwide, adapting our range of services to customer needs and also adopting new approaches to service with Papermaking 4.0.
