Core Link has been awarded a combined contract by Metsä Board for new Core Handling and Roll Handling systems, to ensure the planned production capacity increase on BM1 at the Metsä Board Husum Mill.
Andreas Bjernklev, Head of Sales & Projects at Core Link, said: "The planned Capacity increase from 400,000 to 600,000 tons/year will create some interesting challenges for the Roll- and Core Handling systems at the Husum Mill."
The Core Handling delivery includes; a High Capacity CL4090 Core Cutter with Twin Parent Core Robots and a Parent Core Transport System also feeding an existing Core Link Core Cutter.
Core Link will also deliver Automatic Core Plugging and Core Transport Systems to two winders.
