Konecranes manages pulp and paper industry challenges
Making paper is a long and complicated process. You have to transform wood into pulp which must be dried and cut into sheets and then packed. After a storage period, these pulp bales are then shipped to a paper or paperboard factory, where water and chemicals are added.
Once it emerges as paper web in the paper machine, it is wound into rolls. These giant rolls are rewound and cut into new rolls for customer delivery. These customer rolls must then be stored, ready for delivery. The paper mill works fast and the product needs to be shipped on time to meet demanding customer schedules. You cannot afford any unexpected downtime.
Konecranes provides pulp and paper cranes and other lifting solutions that help you manage your industrial challenges.
We have every stage of the process covered
It doesn't matter whether you are lifting raw pulp into treatment vats, or taking finished parent rolls off the main production line. As customer orders arrive, you need to move your paper supplies into and out of storage as needed. Whatever the task, we have cranes specifically designed for paper manufacturing.
For example, you could use a special wood handling crane with a log crab to lift logs to the debarking drum infeed, or a clamshell bucket to move woodchip into the process. A wet end crane helps with maintenance and works as dry end crane backup. A dry end crane lifts parent rolls from the winding station for storage, transfer cart, or unwinding.
In intermediate storage, our warehouse management system commands fully automatic vacuum lifter or mechanical roll gripper cranes, while increasing efficiency eliminates roll damages and deformations as well as saves costs.
Konecranes also makes general-purpose cranes. The CXT wire rope hoist is good for any general lifting and our jib cranes are ideal as workshop or auxiliary cranes in core handling. Finally, after your paper is ready, a SMARTON® crane could accurately feed paper to your sheet cutting and corrugating machines.
Our unique Smart Solutions make operating our cranes simple and easy. With advanced features such as Sway Control and Target Positioning, your load goes precisely where you want it.
