Pasaban supplies winders
Pasaban SA, Tolosa, Basque Country, Spain, reported that Papeleira Coreboard SA, a Portuguese company that produces 220 tons/day of cardboard for the paper core and angle manufacturing industry, has acquired a BM 2600 paper winder as part of an upgrade project.
Papeleira Coreboard is part of a group that includes Spiralpack and the paper core manufacturer Cicarsa; it has been investing to optimize its manufacturing process using 100% recycled paper.
The winder is an off-line pope winder with 39 automatically positioned slitters. It converts the cardboard produced by the main PM into narrow reels for later use to make Coreboard and Coretissue brand cardboard cores. It has the capacity to process 180 to 700 g/m2 cardboard at 1500 m/min.
• An earlier order was from Asia Symbol Paper Company. This was not the first time that Pasaban had manufactured a folio sheeter for this factory, which is in the province of Guangdong, south-east China. Therefore, for one of their latest projects (PM12), the factory chose Pasaban’s technology and machinery.
The Guangdong factory belongs to the April group, one of the largest pulp and paper manufacturers in the world. It has a cut-size conversion line for high-quality copy paper. In 2017, due to the purchase of a new paper machine capable of producing 1,700 tons of paper a day, they found it necessary to complete the equipment with the latest technology conversion machinery that ensured a high-quality finished product.
Pasaban supplied two KB 2000 cutters with eight unwinders capable of producing high-quality copy and offset paper of 50 to 150 g/m2 at 320 m/min.
