Convincing all along the line – how BEUMER Group supported Denmark’s largest supplier of lime and limestone with an entire packaging line and reliable service


AROUND 63 MILLION YEARS AGO, THE DANISH ISLAND OF ZEALAND WAS UNDERWATER IN A SEA WHERE A LARGE coral reef was formed in the place of today’s city of Faxe. Today, the Belgian Lhoist Group operates a quarry there, close to the Lhoist Faxe Kalk A/S plant. This Danish subsidiary is now one of Denmark’s


largest producers of lime and limestone with 68 employees. “The small town of Faxe was the eponym for our company,” says plant manager Klaus Rønholt. Who described the limestone as crumbling and “riddled with corals”. The Lhoist Group is the world’s largest manufacturer


of lime and dolomite products with around 100 plants in more than 25 countries and employing more than 6,400 people. It is continuously growing and, in order that it can meet the future needs of its customers, it invests in the development of its product range, new systems and machines – including in Zealand. “Our products have to get to our customers even


faster,” says Rønholt. “Not only is production increased, the goods also have to be filled into bags at a higher throughput, stacked on pallets, packed with film and transported to dealers and customers without damage.” The existing packaging line was getting old. LhoistFaxe


Kalk found that it was only able to achieve the required throughput by running extra shifts. There was also an increased amount of dust created during the filling


process, so in order to protect company employees and the environment, the filling machines were replaced with the latest BEUMER Group systems.


REQUIREMENT: EVERYTHING FROM ONE SINGLE SOURCE Managers looked at various providers, insisting they get everything from one source – with one point of contact. Dirk Loose, sales manager for Scandinavia, said Lhoist were convinced by the BEUMER Group’s status as a full- service provider for packaging lines. He added: “With our modular product range, we tailor our solutions to the requirements of our customers.” The Danish manufacturer wanted a complete line with systems that work reliably, comply with environmental regulations, are highly automated and can safely handle hydrated lime. The material tends to form “bridges” in the product feed, making filling hard. Because the system provider came to the project relatively late, the time frame was tight. The production stop needed to be as short as possible. BEUMER Group was flexible im meeting this requirement. The building was renovated and prepared for the


new line while the old one was still running. That was dismantled days before the delivery of the complete line from Beumer, keeping downtime to a minimum. Loose explains: “For the filling of the hydrated lime,
