HEINZEL starts up converted paper machine at Steyrermühl

ANDRITZ has completed the conversion of a graphic paper machine at HEINZEL GROUP’s Steyrermühl mill in Austria.

After a successful start-up, the machine is now producing kraft papers for packaging which are marketed under Heinzel’s well-established Starkraft brand. This enables Heinzel Pöls/Starkraft to take a major step forward in sustainable paper production and global expansion.

The rebuilt machine is running smoothly with a capacity of 150,000 tons of brown and white kraft paper per year and a paper width of 6,300mm at the reel. Starkraft offers a full range of 40 to 100 gsm kraft papers. This strategic investment allows Heinzel’s Starkraft division to produce a total of up to 350,000 tons of kraft paper per year.
