As a competent manufacturer of high-quality coated specialty papers, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper continues the path of innovation and investment. As part of the "New Business Development" program, a new quality control system on the SM 21 has now been successfully commissioned at the Bielefeld site.
Amongst other things, the "New Business Development" innovation programme will enable the multi-stage orientation of the Bielefeld Coating Machine 21 to future markets. The recently commissioned, modern Honeywell quality control system includes several measuring frames of different equipment and system peripherals for precise process control.
Kai Borenius, Head of Machine Technology at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper, says: "We will be able to combine the special coating units even better and make more efficient use of them. In doing so, we not only achieve a further increase in process quality and production flexibility, but ultimately also an optimized product quality. This applies both to our traditional product areas such as thermal or inkjet papers, but especially to our new product areas such as the environmentally friendly barricote barrier papers for food packaging."
With this investment of around EUR 1 million, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper will continue to focus on future, innovative markets and applications.
