Chinese giant Vinda Group has invested in three Toscotec-supplied tissue machines that are scheduled for start-up in the second half of 2016.
Two Ahead 2.0M machines will be installed at the company’s Sanjiang facility in Guangdong province where Vinda already has eight Toscotec-supplied tissue machines running, totalling a capacity of 250,000tpy.
The third machine will be installed in Vinda Shandong where Toscotec has already supplied three lines in three years.
This Ahead 1.5M is identical to the machine fired up last August in Laiwu mill, with a design speed of 1,700m/min and a production capacity of 30,000tpy.
The TM supplier said the TT DOES (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving) “delivers the greatest advantages for the mill: highest performances with the lowest operating costs, by tapping on cost-effective energy sources such as steam and benefiting from Toscotec’s second generation Steel Yankee Dryer”.
