      “Baldwin Spray Applicator is a reliable system that hasn’t required any maintenance at all since the installation. We are very satisfied and can trust the Spray Applicator from Baldwin to perform excellently, without worrying about any lack in quality of our products”

      Daniel Pettersson, Process Engineer, Ahlstrom-Munksjö

      The world-leading advanced paper manufacturer, Ahlstrom-Munksjö chose to install a Baldwin Spray Applicator for Remoistening in their foil manufacturing process to cut maintenance costs and reduce downtime and waste. It turned out to be a rewarding choice realizing highly above expectations.

      With an increasingly high market demand for finish foils, edgebands and balancing paper, especially in the interior industry, Ahlstrom-Munkjö has a continuously high capacity with production running 24/7. Downtime due to equipment maintenance may lead to high losses in production costs, thus reliable performance of the equipment is crucial.

      Before installing the Baldwin Spray Applicator, Ahlstrom-Munksjö used a remoistening equipment utilizing rotary disks for moist application. This method was not always  reliable in regards of quality and uniform end results, so it frequently required time consuming inspections and costly production downtime due to maintenance. The Baldwin Spray Applicator however, changed all that and today, these inspections are no longer necessary. The Spray Applicator from Baldwin proved to be completely reliable and 100% maintenance-free.
