Spain-based Pasaban has upgraded the BM3600 winder at Papel Aralel in their Basque mill. The Company had supplied Papel Araler with the said winder in the year 2015 for the production line of non-woven paper.

Paper and board sheeters and winders more than 10 years old, usually need to be refurbished in order to improve their efficiency. For this reason, upgrading this type of machines is the best option, as the return on investment is short-term.

“The upgrade has been a complete success. Thanks to the automations installed, format changing times and reel loading times have been significantly reduced.” These are the words of satisfaction for the work carried out at the Basque mill Papel Aralar. One of the first manufacturers in the world to produce 100% flushable paper, which is natural, biodegradable and can be flushed down the toilet.
