OptiConcept M – modular papermaking concept
Setting new standards for paper and board making
OptiConcept M is a new and modular way to design, build and operate a paper machine. It is a concept for cost-efficient paper and board making. Based on Metso’s OptiConcept family, OptiConcept M optimizes machine investment according to a mill’s capacity needs.
Maximum efficiency with minimum operating costs
OptiConcept M keeps costs down by increasing energy, raw material and chemicals efficiency. It provides improved flexibility in grade changes, and enables efficient operation and maintenance-friendly design that maximizes productivity and minimizes downtime. OptiConcept M stands for economy, safety, and the environment.
Economy of total investment, personnel safety, easy machine usability and reduction of environmental load were the key targets guiding the development work of a group of experts responsible for new paper and board making concept, OptiConcept M.
Team spirit. The people behind OptiConcept M are not just a bunch of engineers and managers, but a team that shared a common goal. What efforts has this required and what does the future look like? Some of the team members will now throw some light on these questions.
The safer a machine is to operate, the fewer accidents there will be.
The more usable it is, the more it will produce. Safety and usability play
an increasingly important role in Metso’s innovative paper and board
manufacturing line engineering today.
