Paper manufacturer Modern Karton has commissioned Voith to build and deliver a high-speed production facility for the production of recovered corrugated containerboard base paper.
The scope of supply for the PM 6 comprises Voith’s broad full-line supplier portfolio, from the BlueLine stock preparation including the wet end process, the XcelLine paper machine, and a VariFlex Performance winder with SmoothRun vibration damping and TwinDrive double unwind. The key feature of the BlueLine stock preparation is the IntensaDrum Duo drum pulper and its complex feeding system, which can process 3000 metric tons of raw material a day.
Furthermore, Voith will supply the complete reject and sludge system, in which up to 500 metric tons of residual materials can be treated a day. In addition to the proven and resource-efficient components of the BlueLine stock preparation line, all the engineering, including water management and internal water treatment to ensure minimum consumption, is also part of the scope of supply.
Voith will also deliver an extensive clothing package and a wide range of automation solutions comprising the quality control system OnQuality, OnControl MCS and DCS, and an OnCare.Health condition monitoring system. Comprehensive Papermaking 4.0 solutions including the IIoT platform OnCumulus, the OnEfficiency.Strength digital process control and the OnCare.Asset maintenance management tool complete the delivery and will provide Modern Karton with the latest cutting-edge digital technologies for the most efficient production possible. Moreover, the customer will offer their specialist staff dedicated training and effective professional education through the new e-learning programs and virtual reality training courses of the Voith PaperSchool.
The new high-speed facility is expected to produce approximately 640,000 metric tons of recovered corrugated containerboard base paper grades annually from spring 2023, and will thereby increase the manufacturing capacity of Modern Karton in Turkey to almost two million metric tons per year.
Modern Karton is today the largest manufacturer of packaging paper in Turkey and one of the biggest in Europe. It has an annual production volume of more than 1 million metric tons on the basis of completely recycled fibers.
