Voith builds new XcelLine board machine for Bohui Paper Group
Jiangsu, China: In February 2017 Bohui Paper Group contracted Voith to
supply a new board machine. The BM 4 will be built at Dafeng in the
Chinese province Jiangsu and following completion will be one of the
largest board machines in the world. Voith will supply the complete
XcelLine process line from wet end process to winder. This reduces the
number of interfaces for the customer to a minimum and provides cost
transparency for the entire project.

The order is the result of the long and successful cooperation between the
companies to build the BM 1 and BM 3. The experts from Bohui Paper
Group had already been impressed by the fast and smooth commissioning
of these two machines in 2003 and 2013 respectively. The subsequent
efficient production process also ensured a high degree of customer
From December 2018 the new BM 4 will operate at a speed of 1200 m/min
to produce folding box board with a basis weight of 250 g/m2. The
production line offers a range of special technical features that both
improve the quality of the finished paper and reduce energy consumption.
The wet section of the BM 4 impresses with a new Clean Design concept
that achieves particularly high runnability. In the BM 4, the use of a Triple
NipcoFlex press not only ensures tremendous dewatering efficiency while
preserving volume, but also achieves a smooth surface on the board. The
scope of supply also includes three MasterJet Pro headboxes, a
DuoFormer DII, four TurboDryers, and the energy-efficient qDry Pro noncontact
drying system. Moreover the BM 4 is equipped with EcoCal Hard
and EcoCal Soft calenders, a Sirius winding system as well as two
VariFlex winders, MCS and DCS are completing Voith Paper’s scope of
Voith Financial Services also helped secure the project by developing and
organizing an attractive financing concept tailored to the customer's needs. In this area, too, there was close collaboration with Bohui Paper Group
based on a spirit of mutual trust.
