Metso automates Rauma rebuild.

UPM-Kymmene, Helsinki, Finland, selected Metso Paper, Jyvaskyla, Finland, to rebuild its PM1 on-machine cooler in Rauma, Finland. Automation will be supplied by Metso Automation. The project includes a metsoDNA machine control system for the on-line cooler and a metsoDNA process automation unit for the TMP line. The paper machine operates at a speed of 1400 m/min, with a web width on the reel of 8280 mm, producing offset and rotogravure LWC grades in the 57-90g/m2 range. Startup is slated for spring 2003.
