ANDRITZ PULP & PAPER offers full-line paper, board and specialty paper machines for high-quality paper grades. Mills can obtain a complete paper production line from one integrated supplier. Unified design from stock preparation to the reel and guaranteed performance are benefits of partnering with ANDRITZ for a complete production line.


Machine rebuilds entail critical decisions about what to keep and what to replace – ANDRITZ makes sure every piece fits.  We have the process and machinery expertise to recommend the most cost-effective approach.

Showcase plant: complete Heinzel Pöls PM3

The ANDRITZ PrimeLine MG plant produces environmentally friendly MG paper for flexible packaging and release applications at the Pöls location. With an annual capacity of 100,000 t, a design speed of 1,400 m/min., and a working width of 5.4 m, PM3 is setting a new benchmark in the production of these paper grades. The unique machine design makes it possible to produce grades with a low basic weight, very high strength, and good printability and smoothness levels. The heart of the PrimeLine MG paper machine is the PrimeDry MG Steel Yankee with a world-record diameter of 24 feet (7.315 m). ANDRITZ is thus breaking its own world record for size, established in 2013 when PM2 was started up successfully in Pöls with a 22-foot Yankee.

The converted machine – operating with 100% recycled fibers – is now performing well above the planned start-up curve, ready to capture a fast-growing market.

Showcase rebuild: Cartiera Merati BM1

The rebuild included relocating an existing shoe press and supplying an additional PrimePress X shoe press that is operating at a line load of 2,000 kN/m – a world record. The shoe press is designed to provide optimum dryness and sheet properties as well as easy operation and maintenance. It enables Merati to achieve an extraordinary dry content of up to 59%. What’s more, the rebuild has increased the machine’s runability, reduced its specific energy consumption, improved the mechanical properties of the board, and increased output.
