Schoellershammer PM 6 gets off to a great start
Voith's XcelLine and BlueLine impress
2017-02-27 - Last December, the new PM 6 packaging paper machine went into operation at Schoellershammer in Düren, Germany. It is designed to produce light corrugated base board. Voith supplied the paper machine including stock preparation unit, machine control system and clothing. In January, Schoellershammer was already able to produce 10,000 metric tons of marketable paper.
In response to the question of why the company opted for Voith to supply the technology, Vetter mentioned two reasons: 'It was important for us to get a full-line supplier on board who could deliver everything from a single source, from the conveyor system for the recovered paper to the winder. In addition, we have a very strong focus on energy efficiency. We aim to set new standards and become the benchmark for packaging paper in Germany. Voith submitted a convincing package in the shape of BlueLine for the stock preparation and the new XcelLine paper machine.'
