In April 2017, PMP (Paper Machinery Producer) signed a contract with Australian Paper for delivery of an Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox for their paper machine 2 (M2), located in Morwell, Australia.
The new headbox is an investment in the future operating performance of M2.
The project goal is to exchange the existing headbox for a PMP Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox. Australian Paper has chosen PMP’s Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox due to its high performance and impressive references. The project drivers are based on machine maintenance and quality, achieved through the application of state-of-the-art technology.
The scope of delivery is for a 5 meter Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox. PMP’s Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox technology has become an iconic solution in the Pulp & Paper industry. It is a part of PMP’s Intelli-Paper® platform for papermakers. There are 138 Intelli-Jet V® headboxes working successfully on 6 continents.
PMP looks forward to supporting Australian Paper through the entire project process. The delivery, installation, and start-up are scheduled for the 1st quarter of 2018.
