          XcelLine from Voith: Highest performance from the full-line supplier for tissue production

          The startup of the Cheng Loong TM 16 in Taiwan took place in September 2015. Its operating speed is up to 2,001 m/min, which is the fastest speed with a steam hood in the world, leading the industry in several performance indexes. At this record-breaking high speed, the steam consumption of the TM 16 is still very low, at only 1.65 metric ton of steam per ton paper.

              Depending on the purpose for which a paper is used, its surface must have certain properties – especially smoothness and gloss. These properties are imparted to the paper by calenders. Calenders are machines with up to 15 rolls arranged one above the other, which are run together under pressure and then form closed nips.
