The event was attended by the Deputy General Manager and Chief
Engineer of Sun Paper, Mr. Ying Guangdong; the Director of the
Packaging Paper Division, Mr. Fu Guoling; the President of Voith Paper
Asia, Mr. Thomas Holzer; and Dr. Michael Trefz, the Senior Vice President
Project Sales. The design speed of the two paper machines is 1200 m/min,
with a working width of 6,660 mm at the reel. The two production lines will
be built as part of the second phase of the Zoucheng Papermaking
Industry Park, with foundation work planned to begin in May 2017 and
startup scheduled for July and September 2018. The machines are based
on the PM 31 and PM 32 paper machines of 2016. The resulting paper
offers low basis weight, high ring crush strength, high strength and good
folding resistance. It also saves resources, and reduces packing costs and
carbon emissions. These products are already widely used in domestic
and overseas medium-quality and premium product packaging markets.
Voith is now deepening the implementation of its new "Papermaking. Next
Level" concept of product transformation, in order to improve efficiency,
increase production, ensure quality and create more intelligent, costeffective

sustainable development through new resource-saving technologies. They can therefore achieve their best performance at lower prices through every
papermaking step and paper grade, to better meet the challenges of
"Industry 4.0". The concept of "Papermaking. Next Level" has opened up a
new journey towards intelligent production for manufacturers using Voith
technology. When the two production lines ordered by Sun Paper are put
into operation, they will enrich its product mix and variety, enhance its core
competitiveness and further promote Sun Paper’s strategic transformation.
