Four successful start-ups of Voith XcelLine tissue machines at Lee & Man in 2017
With a wire width of 5600 mm, the TM 12 is designed for a maximum operational speed of 2000 m/min. It will produce 60,000 tons of household tissue annually from virgin fiber. The full scope of supply, the same as for TM 9, TM 10 and TM 11, includes the Voith BlueLine stock preparation unit, approach flow system, broke handling, a white water system and the entire XcelLine tissue machine. It features the perfect combination of a NipcoFlex T shoe press to offer remarkable energy savings, a 5.5 meter steel Yankee dryer cylinder to enhance drying efficiency through optimized heat transfer, and a high-performance steam-heated hood to provide the required tissue quality with lower energy consumption. Furthermore, the Voith automation package with DCS, MCS and QCS also formed an integral part of the order.
Within one year, four high-quality tissue paper production lines were successfully started up by Voith at Lee & Man, which is based in Jiangxi and Guangdong. Thanks to this fast expansion of its installed capacities, Lee & Man has advanced rapidly into the ranks of the top manufacturers of household tissue. As a strong partner to Lee & Man, Voith helps set the right course and offers ideal solutions for raising quality and efficiency to the next level.
