Portucel Soporcel Group, a pulp and paper manufacturer, has added two cut-size converting and packaging lines from E.C.H. Will and Pemco at a new mill under construction in Setúbal. A third sheeting and packaging line has been agreed on as an option, to be added as the production curve of the paper machine rises.
One line comprises a 16-pocket E.C.H. Will SLK 470 cut-size sheeter, two Pemco high-speed packaging lines, the latest in labeling and strapping technology, and two Langhammer high-speed palletizers. It has a 3.48-m working width, said to be the widest of its kind.
The other line comprises an eight-pocket E.C.H. Will SLK 490 flexible cut-size sheeter, a Pemco flexible packaging line, and a palletizer from Langhammer.
Hermano Mendonca, marketing director of the Portucel Soporcel Group, says, “We have worked very closely with E.C.H. Will, Pemco, and their sub-suppliers to develop the best packaging solutions in order to anticipate the most demanding market needs. We are proud to continue our already successful partnership with [them].”
