At the Fiber R&D Center in Graz, papermakers have a fully equipped area to test their ideas for equipment, processes, and products on pilot-plant scale – without impacting mill operations. Running the trials and making the errors at our pilot plant means that there are no errors at your mill.
The R&D Center is fully equipped for equipment and process R&D as well as direct work for customer trials. It is flexible enough to accommodate single machine testing or complete process lines and is able to process both recycled and virgin fibers. If needed for a specific trial, our specialists have the ability to collaborate with experts in one of our other ANDRITZ R&D facilities in Austria, China and the US.
