Shin-Ei Paper has invested in two tissue machines with Steel Yankees that will be used to produce high-quality tissue from recycled fibre.
Scheduled to start up at the start of 2015 at the company’s Fuji city site, the
new PrimeLineCOMPACT machines will be supplied by Andritz.
They are designed for speeds of 1,800m/min with paper widths of 2.8m.
They will be equipped with PrimeDry Steel Yankees to achieve high drying capacity at minimal energy costs.
Satoshi Kurosaki, President of Shin-Ei Paper, said: “Doh-Ei Paper, one of our group’s companies, replaced a cast iron Yankee with an Andritz Steel Yankee in 2012.
“As promised, higher drying capacity and energy savings were achieved. During the tender phase for the two new tissue machines, we had a lot of constructive discussions with Andritz engineers and they proposed various possibilities to improve the production efficiency.”
