In the past months, two XcelLine paper machines PM 36 and PM 37 successfully started up at Zoucheng site of Honghe Paper, subsidiary of China’s leading papermaking group Sun Paper. The start-up of PM 37 has set up a new record: it only took two hours from Stock on Wire to Paper on Reel.

The two paper machines PM 36 and PM 37 started up in the past two months and both machines are fully meeting Sun Paper’s expectations. PM 36 produces low-grammage high-grade testliner and PM 37 produces high-quality corrugating medium. Both machines have an annual production capacity of 400,000 metric tons. Together with the already running Voith XcelLine packaging paper machines PM 31 and PM 32, Honghe Paper will achieve an overall annual production capacity of 1.6 million tons.
