PT Sun Paper Source in Sukoanyar, Indonesia, has successfully started up its new VTM 1, a tissue machine supplied by Voith, Germany. The operating speed of 1,600 m/min was reached three days after startup.
This is the first machine in Asia to feature a NipcoFlex T shoe press combined with a steel yankee cylinder and a steam heated high-performance hood. 
The delivery included the approach flow system, the vacuum system, the VTM 1 tissue machine with a wire width of 2,860 mm, together with auxiliary equipment, MCS, DCS, and QCS. The VTM 1 is based on a modular concept that in this case consists of a single-layer MasterJet Pro T headbox, the NipcoFlex T shoe press, a 16-foot steel yankee cylinder, a high-performance hood, and the MasterReel winder.

The VTM 1 with shoe press, steel yankee, and high-performance hood from Voith is a very energy-efficient design, Voith notes. It allows high operating speeds and problem-free operation. In comparison with conventional press rolls, the dry content after the press with NipcoFlex T technology is up to 5% higher, which means that up to 20% of the thermal energy can be saved.

PT Sun Paper Source is one of the leading paper producers in Indonesia.
