Following the implementation of the PM2 in 2013, Starkraft laid down the foundation for strong, flexible kraft paper solutions and has surpassed all expectations year on year. The PM3, like the PM2, incorporates only state-of-the-art technology, that has enabled us to expand our overall production capacity to 200,000 tons of high quality kraft paper per year. With the addition of Starkraft’s third paper machine PM6 in Steyrermühl in May 2024, a full range of packaging & speciality papers will be available for customers. From May onwards Starkraft’s total capacity will increase from 200,000 to 350,000 tons of kraft paper.
All Starkraft paper machines offer maximum flexibility in meeting the global market place trends e.g. enhanced moisture retention, increased strength properties, lower grammages and high purity for hygiene solutions.

Highest refining level
Depending on the required paper quality, we are able to adjust the refining intensity of the pulp within our refiners. During this phase within the paper process, we develop and ensure the maximal density and strength of our paper.

Excellent formation
We control the essential paper properties from the beginning onwards. Our equipment ensures optimal dewatering and an excellent dilution water control, which are both highly important for improved sheet formation, paper thickness and ultimately excellent paper quality.

Best run-ability
The world`s largest Yankee cylinder- the heart of our machine- not only dries the paper within the process, but provides an excellent paper surface and perfect gloss as well. This ensures that our paper has optimal sheet running capabilities and excellent printability.

Excellent smoothness
Depending on product specification, paper requires certain properties; our modern calendar ensures that the required characteristics such as gloss, smoothness, thickness and closed paper structure are positively influenced.

Constant paper quality
Throughout the whole paper production process the quality of our paper product is controlled by online measurement and steering systems. The ensures that the paper quality remains constantly high.

Variable reel sizes
Our rewinder takes the jumbo reels from the machine, removes any defects in the paper and cuts the reels to the diameter and width specifications of our customers. Our rolls, with a width between 450-3.200 mm are free of winding defects, have straight-edged end faces and excellent winding structures.

Fully automatic
At our fully automated finishing line, the rolls are packed and labelled according to the requirements of our customers and are delivered automatically to the despatch department.

Verladung in Waggons

Loading in wagons
The loading of our paper is generally into wagons or trucks, but we also load into containers that get shipped directly to the ports. Starkraft is strongly committed to environmentally friendly rail transport, which we fully support with our own railway connection.
