Portuguese Pulp & Paper Manufacturer Adds Cut-Size Line

HAMBURG, SETUBAL | The Portuguese pulp and paper manufacturer Portucel Soporcel Group has ordered a second 16-pocket cut-size line from E.C.H. Will and Pemco for its new paper mill in Setúbal, Portugal.

In the beginning of 2008, Portucel Soporcel Group and the Körber PaperLink companies E.C.H. Will and Pemco signed a contract for two cut-size lines for the new paper mill location. The eight-pocket cut-size line for flexible production of different products and the 16-pocket cut-size line for highest possible output are currently installed and started production in August 2009.

The second high-output line will consist of an E.C.H. Will SLK 470 cut-size sheeter, two Pemco high-speed packaging lines, the latest in labeling and strapping technology, and two W+D-Langhammer high-speed palletizers.

The second 16-pocket cut-size line will be delivered in May 2010, and is scheduled to start production in October 2010.
