Voith Introduces XcelLine New Generation of Paper Machines

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Under the name "XcelLine," Voith, Germany, this week announced that it has improved and refined its paper machines for all paper grades. The machines from the XcelLine offer fast and easy startup, excellent value for money, pioneering technologies, ease of use, and integrated solutions. 

The new generation of paper machines stands for "Xcellent Performance" and offers paper manufacturers decisive advantages—optimized individual components, combined with improved interfaces and process flows, result in a significant reduction in project and startup times.

In recent months, successful startups have already been realized with XcelLine paper machines, for example with the installation of two packaging paper machines—Zoucheng PM 31 and PM 32 for Sun Paper. Just a few hours after startup, PM 31 was producing several hundred Voith GmbH 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. 

One example of a successful XcelLine tissue machine is the Cheng Loong TM 16 in Taiwan. It 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., TM 16 is regarded as the world's fastest tissue machine with steam-heated yankee dryer hood.
