Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Yuen Foong Yu Corp. (YFY), China, and PMP Group, Poland, have been working together for the past six years in the tissue business. After designing seven tissue machines for three Yuen Foong facilities in China, both companies report that they have reached a higher level of cooperation.

Earlier this month, PM 5 and PM 6 at YFY’s Yangzhou (China) facility achieved an impressive capacity increase. The PMP Intelli-Tissue® 1500 machines, with a maximum operating speed of 1,600 m/min, were brought on stream in the summer of 2012. Both machines were designed to produce 75 metric tpd each. However, thanks to parameter optimization of the machines, it was possible to enhance the capacity to 96.7 metric tpd on PM 5 and 84.3 metric tpd on PM 6. Reaching the speed record of 1,700 m/min. has enhanced the daily capacity up to a combined 17%, with basis weight at the wire of 14.1 gsm and 12.3 gsm, respectively.

In 2012, Ming-Fa Tang, the YFY deputy GM of Engineering & Technology, said that it was the fastest assembly and startup in the history of YFY, meaning that YFY’s PM 5 and PM 6 were not only the fastest in installation, they are literally among the fastest machines in the company’s entire fleet.

Currently, YFY and PMP Group are in the middle of an execution phase for the four PMP Intelli-Tissue 1500 machines for the company’s Yangzhou and Dingfung tissue mills. Both YFY and PMP say they are eager to raise the bar on those projects after achieving exceptional results with PM 5 and PM 6 at Yangzhou.
