Metso will rebuild an off-machine coater of the coated woodfree paper production line at the Changhang mill of Hansol Paper Co., Ltd. in South Korea. The rebuilt production line will be fully operational during 2013. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
“The main target of the rebuild is to convert the production line to produce also thermal paper grades. As a result of the rebuild, the mill will be capable of flexibly changing production between coated woodfree grades and thermal paper grades,” says Metso’s Senior Sales Manager Pekka Turtinen.
The order is included in Metso’s Pulp, Paper and Power second quarter 2012 orders received.
Metso’s delivery will comprise a curtain coating unit, a soft calender, a reel and a moisturizer for curl control. The new curtain coating unit applies a thin thermal coating layer on the web economically in a non-contacting operation.
