20 May 2020

Swedish SCA Group has ordered a high-performance dry sorting line from Springer to be completed by 2023.

A range of tailor-made automisation and digitisation solutions will be installed: The beltless Springer-E-CUT 200 trimmer; Fully automatic Springer-ED 3000 wrapper; Robotic labelling system.

"We are delighted to be continuing our successful partnership with SCA. The new dry sorting plant combines superior digital technology with user-friendliness and efficiency," said Timo Springer, CEO of Springer Maschinenfabrik GmbH.

“During the contract negotiations, our Swedish distribution partner LOAB gave us excellent support and reconciled the interests of SCA and Springer. According to Gert Fischinger, head of project planning, the order was issued following a very intensive, two-year project planning process and was based on Springer’s latest product innovations.”

The system will be the largest single installation as well as the fastest one on the market. It will be able to handle up to 230 boards and 28 handovers per minute, resulting in an annual capacity of more than 750,000 m3 boards.

All plant sections are pre-installed, pre- assembled and commissioned at Springer’s production facility.
