Voith XcelLine paper machines Voith's new generation of paper machines, "XcelLine", stands for "Xcellent Performance" and offers paper manufacturers optimized individual components, combined with improved interfaces and process flows.

Nov. 15, 2016 - Voith announced that it has improved and refined its paper machines for all paper grades under the name "XcelLine." The machines from the XcelLine offer fast and easy start-up, excellent value for money, pioneering technologies, ease of use and integrated solutions.

According to Voith, the new generation of paper machines stands for "Xcellent Performance" and offers paper manufacturers optimized individual components, combined with improved interfaces and process flows, which result in a significant reduction in project and start-up times.

In recent months successful start-ups have already been realized with XcelLine paper machines, such as the installation of two packaging paper machines, Zoucheng PM 31 and PM 32, for Sun Paper. Just a few hours after start-up, PM 31 was producing several hundred tons of marketable paper. Since then it has been running smoothly and stably at a high production level. One month later PM 32 was also successfully commissioned.

An XcelLine tissue machine — Cheng Loong TM 16 — in Taiwan recently started-up. The machine is particularly energy-efficient, as the Yankee dryer hood is heated with steam instead of gas, while the combination with the NipcoFlex T shoe press reduces running costs. With an operating speed of 2,001 m/min the TM 16 is regarded as the world's fastest tissue machine with steam-heated Yankee dryer hood, Voith added

Voith Paper, a division of the Voith Group, offers new machines for the production of graphic papers, board and packaging grades, specialty or tissue papers. The company also offers rebuilds, and pulp and paper related products and services. For more information, visit www.voithpaper.com.
