Sun Paper orders new PM 36 & PM 37

A signing ceremony was held in late January, to mark Sun Paper’s order of two new XcelLine paper machines from Voith. The orders are for the PM 36 (with an annual production of 400,000 tons of low-grammage Testliner) and the PM 37 (with an annual production of 300,000 metric tons of high-quality fluting). The event was attended by the Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer of Sun Paper, Ying Guangdong; the Director of the Packaging Paper Division, Fu Guoling; the President of Voith Paper Asia, Thomas Holzer; and Dr Michael Trefz, the Senior Vice President Project Sales.

The design speed of the two paper machines is 1,200m per min, with a working width of 6,660mm. The two paper machines will be built as part of the second phase of the Zoucheng Papermaking Industry Park, with foundation work planned to begin in May 2017 and startup scheduled for July and September 2018.
