Finland-based Vaahto Pulp & Paper Machinery has received a second order from Indonesian PT Fajar Surya Wisesa Tbk (Fajar Paper). The main products of the machine are linerboards for packaging industry. The value of the order is approximately €10m.

PM7 of Jakarta based mill will be rebuilt entirely. Vaahto will supply two headboxes, extension of the fourdrinier with a Top-Former unit and an additional upper wire. To the dry-end of the machine a Vaahto Film-sizer and a hardnip calendar will be installed. Installation supervision, training and start-up services are essential parts of the delivery.

Main portion of the equipment will be manufactured in Vaahto´s workshops in Hollola and Tampere in Finland.

Fajar PM7 is a 6.65 m-trim-width machine and can reach 1100m/min production speed after the modernisation. The line will be shut down for the rebuild in the later part of 2011. The target of the rebuild is to improve production capacity and quality of the paperboard significantly.
