In recent months, successful start-ups have already been realized with XcelLine paper machines, for example with the installation of two packaging paper machines, Zoucheng PM 31 and PM 32, for Sun Paper. Just a few hours after start-up the PM 31 was producing several hundred
Voith GmbH tons of marketable paper. Since then it has been running smoothly and stably at a high production level. One month later the PM 32 was also successfully commissioned.
One example of a successful XcelLine tissue machine is the Cheng Loong TM 16 in Taiwan. It is particularly energy-efficient, as the Yankee dryer hood is heated with steam instead of gas, while the combination with the NipcoFlex T shoe press reduces running costs. With an operating speed of 2,001 m/min the TM 16 is regarded as the world's fastest tissue machine with steam-heated Yankee dryer hood.
