Ten Toscotec tissue machines up and running at Vinda’s Sanjiang mill
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 is the 21st machine supplied by Toscotec to Vinda.
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).
