June 7, 2023 (press release) –

📢 Exciting News! Stora Enso commissions FMW Industries to supply complete, fully automated bale handling systems for the largest board machine in Europe (Oulu, Finland). 🚀

Stora Enso is converting its existing paper machine at the Oulu site from coated graphic papers to the production of high-quality coated primary fiber-based board. With a planned production volume of 750,000 tons per year, the plant will be one of the largest of its kind in Europe. 📈

💪 We will supply four fully automatic pulper feeding lines with a total capacity of 2,700 tons of “virgin fiber bales” per day. Three production lines are designed for processing so-called "jumbo bales" with a total capacity of 123 bales per hour. The fourth line is directed for the preparation and processing of so-called "export bales" (market pulp). This can be adapted for a capacity of 220 bales per hour in the future.

In order to make the recycling of the wire coils from the eight dewiring machines as efficient as possible, they are collected by a fully automatic magnetic conveyor belt system and transported to a collection container. ♻️

We are very pleased that Stora Enso, a leading supplier of renewable products in packaging, biomaterials, wooden construction and paper and one of the largest private forest owners in the world, has once again chosen our solution. The order further expands our existing partnership and reinforces the successful commissioning of a similar plant in 2022. 🤝

Stay tuned for more updates on this great project! 🌍✨
