In November 2012, PMP Group – a global provider of paper machinery, has signed a contract with Schumacher Packaging Werk Grudziądz, for the delivery of an Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox.
The Schumacher Packaging Group, founded in 1948 and still owner managed, is now a leading manufacturer of tailor-made packaging solutions using corrugated and solid cardboard. Currently the company owns 10 facilities located in Poland and Germany, where it employs approximately 2200 people. It is one of the largest and most rapidly growing manufacturers of corrugated board and cardboard on the Polish market. In 2011, Schumacher Group reached a turnover of EUR 388 million. On its customer’s list, brands such as Bosch-Siemens, Lindt or Toshiba, can be found.
PMP Group’s scope of delivery will include an Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox with Consistency Profiling System. The 5-channel unit, of pondside approximately 3100 mm and design speed 950 m/min, will be installed on PM#1 which is producing testliner. PMP Group will also be responsible for the unit’s assembly and supervision over the machine’s start-up which is scheduled for the second half of 2013.
PMP Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox is the key component of the entire Intelli-Technology® platform - designed for paper and packaging production. A headbox is considered to be the heart of a paper machine, due to its high influence on the final product parameters. Thus PMP headboxes are high-tech products that are characterized by long product life-span.
The new unit, delivered to Schumacher Packaging, will make the 93rd headbox on PMP’s reference list so far.
