Set the right basis for your paper production

    Expert knowledge and equipment

    Raw material handling is of central importance for paper production. Since the raw material is delivered in different forms, e.g. loose material, paper bales, different sizes, dimensions and grades, the machines used must meet these requirements and be able to be applied flexibly and yet precisely. In order to guarantee the optimum quality of the new produced paper, state-of-the-art techniques should already be used in this process step.

        • Long lifetime
        • Easy to service and maintain

        HPC Hinged Belt Conveyors

        Hinged Plate Conveyors are used for the disposal of wire coils. The wire coils are transported from either the unit dewiring machine or the single bale dewiring machine for pulp bales or recovered paper bales to a collecting point, for example container or wire coiling machine.

        MD Metal Detector

        Metal Detectors are used after automatic bale dewiring machines for detection of magnetic and non-magnetic metals in the raw material. This is particulary necessary for the production of highquality papers.

        MWC Manual Wire Cutting Device

        The Manual Wire Cutting Device MWC cuts binding wires around recovered paper bales and pulp bales. This system offers the following advantages:
        • A pneumatically operated pair of cutter blades makes cutting much easier
