Metso to Rebuild Off-Machine Coater for Hansol Paper's Changhang Mill in South Korea

Metso's curtain coating unit applies a thin thermal coating layer on the web economically in a non-contacting operation.

July 31, 2012 - Metso said that it received an order to 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 value of the order was not disclosed.

"The main target of the rebuild is to convert the production line to produce also thermal paper grades," said Pekka Turtinen, Senior Sales Manager for Metso.

"As a result of the rebuild, the mill will be capable of flexibly changing production between coated woodfree grades and thermal paper grades," Turtinen added.

Metso’s delivery will include 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, Metso noted.

The rebuilt production line will be fully operational during 2013.
