Marlia, Italy 06 September 2016 -- Vinda Paper (China) Co., Ltd. in Sanjiang mill, Jiangmen, has started up two new Toscotec's machines, TM 9 & 10. Both machines are AHEAD-2.0M with a design speed of 1,800 mpm.
TM10 Vinda's Sanjiang mill in Guangdong province has now ten Toscotec tissue machines of different models and configurations. Considering the start-ups of TM9 and TM10, the Chinese producer has achieved startup of all 10 machines in less than four years. This is a testament to the outstanding growth and sustained progress of the Vinda Group, and to Toscotec's strategic development of customized design and state-of-the-art solutions for energy reduction.
Furthermore, on June 20, Vinda Paper (Shandong) Co., Ltd. fired up one AHEAD-1.5M ES tissue machine, which is already running at the speed of 1,500 mpm. The machine, which is the fourth installed in the Shandong mill, has a design speed of 1,700 mpm and a net web width of 3,400 mm. The AHEAD-1.5M tissue machine installs Toscotec's second generation Steel Yankee Dryer TT SYD, steam-heated hoods and large suction press roll (with a diameter of 1425 mm). Based on the remarkable results of previous projects, Vinda Group has once again chosen to invest in Toscotec's tissue machine technology, which benefits from a comprehensive energy-saving concept, the TT DOES (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving) package.
A part from TM4, Vinda's Shandong mill hosts other three Toscotec-supplied machines: TM1 & 2 are AHEAD-1.5S ES, steadily running at "> 1500 m/min and TM3, identical to TM4, started-up last November, is now running at 1,600 mpm.
Vinda Group's production capacity has reached over 1 million t/y now.
