Sun Paper is investing into two paper machines as part of the second phase of the Zoucheng Papermaking Industry Park in China. Startup is scheduled for July and September 2018.

The company placed an order with Voith Paper for XcelLine machines:

  • PM 36 production line will have an annual production of 400kt of low-grammage highgrade Testliner
  • PM 37 production line will have an annual production of 300kt of high-quality corrugating medium paper

According to Voith’s information, the design speed of the two paper machines is 1200 m/min, with a working width of 6,660 mm at the reel. 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.
