Extra machinery installed to meet paper demand

The installation of extra machinery at M-reals New Thames Mill in Kent will mean more recycled paper coming onto the market.

M-real New Thames Conversion Manager Alan Young said: Demand for recycled papers from customers is increasing, for commercial uses as well as photocopying, desktop printers and home use.

As well as increased volumes, we can now provide a wider range of cut size products, with faster lead times and improved stock availability.

Describing the line M-real New Thames Mill Manager Howard Emmett added: The cutsize production line is a precision line, which converts paper from reels to sheet size, 90% of which is for A4 copy.

The equipment, manufactured by Will-Pemco, is not new, but was transferred from M-reals Kangas Mill in Finland.

Installation took nine months, with the machine starting production several weeks ahead of schedule. The company had to introduce innovative technology to achieve the right layout in the space available, including some conveyor systems never used before.
