Valmet will supply Valmet DNA Automation System (DCS) and Valmet IQ Quality Control System (QCS) to Schumacher Packaging's Myszków plant in Poland for the rebuild of the board machine 2. The target is to improve the plant's production efficiency and end-product quality. The installation is scheduled to start in May 2023. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
Valmet's delivery is part of the BM2 rebuild that aims to increase the mill's capacity to better meet the growing demand for made-to-measure packaging solutions. Valmet's delivery includes the modernization of the stock preparation and board machine DCS, extension of the existing QCS with an additional scanner and renewal of the quality controls.
The Schumacher Packaging Group is one of the largest family businesses in the industry in Europe. The Myszkow plant was taken over by Schumacher packaging in 2016 and its initial production of newsprint was turned to corrugated board production in 2019 thanks to a large investment program.
Valmet is a leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
