On June 28, 2019, the BM 7, the most modern, most efficient and largest board machine in the world, was successfully commissioned at the BillerudKorsnäs production facility in Gruvön, Sweden. The Voith XcelLine board machine has been equipped with a pioneering technological setup that sets new performance benchmarks for production lines for four different board grades. At a design speed of 1,200 m/min and web width of 8,800 mm, the capacity of the BM 7 is 550,000 metric tons per year. Start-up took just seven days from stock on wire to paper on reel.

“Not only is the start-up of the new BM 7 in Gruvön running to schedule; the collaboration with the Voith team has also been first-rate. As a result we were able to meet all major milestones and have been producing high-quality liners for our customers on the BM 7 since the end of June. We will continue to focus on the successful start-up of the BM 7, safety, production stability, efficiency improvements and innovation,” says Maria Engnes, Program Director NEXT Generation of BillerudKorsnäs.

“With the board machine in Gruvön, currently the most modern in the world, Voith Paper has once again been able to reinforce its position as a technology leader and innovation driver,” adds Patrick Romes, Senior Project Manager, Voith Paper.
