Innovation Continues  Apace in Finland, Paper360º July/August 2018

Innovation in the Finnish pulp and paper technology sector is alive and well.

This was amply demonstrated during an editors’ tour organized by the Finland Pulp and Paper Technology (PPT) group. This tour usually takes place every two or three years, and the 2018 edition was as full as its predeces-sors, with 15 visits to producers, suppliers, and even the new Helsinki port—all in five days.

The first stop, as per usual, was  Konecranes, just north of Helsinki. In a typical mill, there are more than 100 pieces of Kone equipment (cranes, hoists, etc). One of the company’s latest innovations is a customized, totally automated crane designed for Metsä Fibre’s new bioproducts mill at Äänekoski, Finland. The crane can load 32 metric tons per lift into a rail. It takes two lifts to fill a car.

TAPPI conference proceedings and presentations, technical papers, and publication articles provide technical and management data and solutions on topics covering the Pulp, Paper, Tissue, Corrugated Packaging, Flexible Packaging, Nanotechnology and Converting Industries.

Simply select the quantity, add to your cart and your conference paper, presentation or article will be available for immediate download.
