The Palm Group has selected Heimbach as co-supplier for forming fabrics, press felts, shoe press belts and transfer belts for its new PM 5 corrugating base paper machine. With this decision, the Aalen-based family-owned company has placed its trust in the expertise and technical know-how of the experienced machine clothing specialist Heimbach.
"We are very proud to have been selected as a major partner in the start-up of the world's fastest and widest container board machine. A key part of the success story, apart from our well-rounded product concept, is the excellent relationship and co-operation between our team on the ground and those responsible at Palm", says Michael Keller, Vice President Sales at Heimbach.
The paper machine will have an annual production capacity of 750,000 tons and a wire width of 11,70m, starting up during the first half of 2021 with clothing and service from Heimbach at the forefront.
