Future-orientated investment: Installation of a film press at the MMK Eerbeek mill

29.08.2017 - Innovations / Investments, Company / Mills

Performing even better with state-of-the-art technology and thereby increase our competitive edge – this is an essential cornerstone of our corporate strategy. 
At our mill in Eerbeek, the Netherlands, we have invested in a new film press and therefore in quality improvement, performance and product development possibilities.

Achieving a lot with one step
The installation of a state-of-the-art film press pursued several goals: quality optimisation, process improvements, preservation of resources and extension possibilities of our product portfolio.
The new film press allows us to specifically impact the technical properties of the cartonboard by means of precisely adjustable application quantities of binder. Apart from the qualitative advantages of the cartonboard produced and the significant improvement of processing stability on the board machine, this is also a benefit to the environment: Thanks to the much higher solids content of the binder, the amount of water to be vaporised is reduced, which saves substantial amounts of energy. In addition, it is possible to apply film-forming substances on the cartonboard with special properties such as barriers. The conversions also resulted in a slight increase in productivity.

Efficient project management enabled the successful project implementation up to full operation
The installation of the main equipment was completed in less than two weeks, and the movements and drying groups were tested successfully. For the Eerbeek mill, the installation of the film press is only one of many projects that were conducted simultaneously, as for example the installation of a gas turbine and a 10 kV voltage distribution system, as well as the conversion of the rewinder.
The mill is already operating at full capacity. Further set-up and optimisation tasks are still ongoing, but we can safely state that this investment has strengthened the position of the Eerbeek mill in the European virgin fibre cartonboard market. The outstanding commitment of our MMK Eerbeek team made this ambitious conversion a success.
