Bekaert Solaronics will supply Greenpaper with one infrared drying system GemDryer after a rebuilt UMV twin HSM coater on its PM3.

The paper machine PM3 manufactures 100% recycled clay-coated boxboard for folding box conversion. The Bekaert Solaronics GemDryer® addresses the paper machine’s flexibility needs and can be easily adapted to the different top coating dry weights.

Moreover, thanks to its compactness and unique design, coupled with the use of high performance Gem12E emitters, the system meets the customer needs in terms of high power density, ease of maintenance and low operating costs.

It offers folding carton, top liner, kraft liner, and corrugating medium products. Greenpaper (Formerly known as Propasa) was founded in 1943 and is based in San Nicolás de los Garza, Mexico.
