Large-scale rebuild at packaging specialist Grupo Gondi, Mexico
Grupo Gondi was established in 1954 and is a leading Mexican manufacturer of high quality packaging and recycling papers. Against strong international competition, Bellmer Ibérica was awarded the order for the rebuild of PM # 2 in Gondi’s paper mill Empaques Modernos de Guadalajara (EMG). The target of the upgrade was both an improvement of paper quality and an increase in speed.

Paper machine # 2 currently produces coated recycling papers, white topliners and brown top layers in the 160 - 470 g/m2 range. As part of a planned increase in production, an existing headbox will be modified, and Bellmer will also supply a new TURBOBladeJetter hydraulic headbox. This hydraulic headbox will ensure an even CD profile as well as first-class sheet formation. A TURBOShaker for high-frequency shaking of the breast roll is also included within the scope of supply. The combination of these technologies will ensure an improvement in formation quality. The dewatering capacity of the three-layer wire section will be improved by the integration of new suction boxes, and the press and dryer sections will be modified, too. A new reeler will help reduce rejects, while the coater will be equipped with air dryers as well as an infrared system.
In addition, the mechanical and electrical drives, and the hood and steam system will all be upgraded.
All parts are made in Germany at Bellmer’s headquarters in Niefern. Project management and engineering will be performed by Bellmer Ibérica in Spain.

Startup and training of personnel will be carried out by our German-Spanish crew.
