The Extractor 1800/2400 utilizes a modular design for maximum flexibility. FMW’s design incorporates the traditional in-line arrangement and apron conveyor (Type PB) proven over years of service at older FMW systems.

The Extractor 1800/2400 is flexibly designed for use in both new system and upgrated installations.

Wastepaper bales of all standard dimensions and qualities can be processed automatically by the Extractor 1800/2400.

Maxson Automatic Machinery Co., manufacturer of rotary cutters and sheet handling systems for the Converting Industry, makes available a reject gate system for Maxson sheeters.

The optional Maxson reject gate system can be designed into both stationary bed and dual rotary knife sheeters and provides a way of removing roll defects, splices and cut outs from paper or board at the tape section. Defects are discharged via the reject beneath the sheeter for easy removal. Once the defective material is clear, the reject gate closes allowing perfect product to be conveyed through the tape section and into the stacker.

Maxson Engineered Reject Gate System permits discharge away product piles

The reject gate in conjuction with an automatic splicing system allows discharge of the splices area at high speed when cut product moves into the tape section. This allows the sheeter to maintain optimum production while changing from one roll to another



The software "Deckle Manager" is developed by WOW Solutions, a customized software solution developing company. This is used for deckle set matching for Kraft Paper Industries. It works on the platform of Windows 95 or 98. It requires at least Pentium-I processor or its equivalent and 32 MB RAM.

This software is user friendly and windows based to solve production planning problems, right from making "deckle sets", "Stock in process", "reel register", remaining order status, customer report to generating delivery challan.

While making the sets, it consider B.F., GSM, Deckle width range and if required, cutsizes. The cutsize is that size which is not an order size, but it has to be taken just to complete the order and making a deckle set. These cutsizes are predefined sizes. The software is capable of handling any range of slittings as per the industry's requirement.

This software has been developed after studying requirements of various paper mills. It has unique capabilities of simultaneously processing any number of orders and related data with maximum accuracy. Besides all this, it gives provision for the order data to be saved into the floppy for deckle matching.




BILT (Ballarpur Industries Ltd) forges ahead for million tonne capacity after completing acquiring of the MNC- Sinar Mas Pulp and Paper India Ltd, subsidiary of the Indonesian giant-Asia Pulp and Paper India Ltd at Rs 640 crores. A new Company in the name of BILT Graphics Paper Ltd is proposed to be formed soon.

Ever since the Sinar Mas paper mill was commissioned in Bhigwan near Pune, Indian paper mills had the fear of being gnawed by MNCs. Bilt’s taking over of this mill will bury in oblivion the name of Sinar Mas and the competitors in India will feel relieved. The mill has an installed capacity of 1.15 lakh tonnes and has become the market leader in coated paper, having 35% market share. The Company reported turnover of Rs 400 crores with a gross profit of Rs 100 crores and net profit of Rs 6 crores. However, it had accumulated loss of Rs 300 crores in its books.

Ballarpur Industries Ltd (BILT) has seven pulp and paper units in different parts of the country, namely in Maharashtra, Haryana, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. BILT has diverted from its present expansion plan to acquire 100% stake in Sinar Mas Pulp and Paper India Ltd. BILT Paper Holdings Co has made the deal. BILT had proposed investment of Rs 375 crores for expansion of its plants in Yamuna Nagar and Ballarpur, which will not take place with this take-over. The group’s current annual production is 1.5 lakh tones of coated paper, 2 lakh tonnes of uncoated paper, 1 lakh tonne of pulp, 80,000 tonnes of uncoated board and 45, 000 tonnes of sack craft. With this acquiring, BILT aims to be in the list of the top 15 manufacturers in Asia and in one million tonne group.
