Yuen Foong Yu Corporation has significantly boosted its capacity on two PMP Intelli-Tissue® 1500 machines after it reached a speed record of 1,700mpm.

PM 5 and PM 6 are running in the YFY’s Yangzhou, China-based facility and were designed to produce 75tpd each.

However, on 1 January, PM 5 increased its capacity to 96.7tpd on and 84.3tpd on PM 6.
The PMP Intelli-Tissue® 1500 machines have a maximum operating speed of 1,600mpm and were brought on stream in the summer of 2012.

Reaching the speed record of 1,700mpm has enhanced the daily capacity up to combined 17%, with basis weight at wire of 14.1gsm and 12.3gsm.

The two companies are currently in the middle of an execution phase for the following PMP 4 Intelli-Tissue® 1500 machines for the Yangzhou and Dingfung tissue mills.
