Voith board line for Asia Symbol in China

Voith has received another order to build and supply a complete paper production line. The pulp and paper manufacturer Asia Symbol has commissioned Voith to supply BM13 board machine for its Rugao site, located 180 km north-west of Shanghai, China.

The state-of-the-art production line will achieve an annual production volume of up to 1,000,000 tons of high-quality coated folding boxboard in the basis weight range 170 – 400 gsm. The planned design speed is 1,400 m/min. Start-up of the new line is scheduled for mid-2023.

Asia Symbol is pleased to be able to further successfully expand its market position in China with this new production line. “We are absolutely delighted that Asia Symbol has underscored our long-standing and very trusting cooperation with this major order,” adds Joachim Huber, Sales Manager, Voith Paper. “With the BM13 in Rugao, we will supply a highly efficient system as a full-line supplier that enables optimised and resource-saving production of folding boxboard. The order is complemented by the latest automation technologies.”
