From Pulp to Photo Cards Felix Schoeller Group Weißenborn Paper Mill: A fully-integrated imaging site

Time: approx. 13:30 to 18:00 (tour is ~4-5 hours including a one-hour bus drive in each direction)

Visit the Weißenborn paper mill, which began a transformation in 1998 into the only fully-integrated production site worldwide for imaging papers (photo imaging and digital media). Under the umbrella term IQ – Integrated Quality – all production steps take place here under one roof, from production of the raw paper, through all the refining steps, to converting and storage. With an annual capacity of 105,000 tons—and 840 employees—the mill features one paper machine, two extruders, and three coaters, one of which is the largest imaging paper coater in the world.

Upon arrival, attendees are given a short introduction. They then break into small groups and spend about 90 minutes touring the papermaking, paper coating (polymer extrusion and aqueous coating), converting, and warehousing facilities. Refreshments are provided.

The tour and refreshments are sponsored by Felix Schoeller Group.
