To increase capacity, tissue quality, and efficiency, Ehime Paper, Japan, has rebuilt its PM 8 in Ehime prefecture. The tissue machine, which has been redesigned in line with the Valmet (Finland) Advantage DCT 135 Technology, smoothly came on stream at the end of August and is currently running at guaranteed design speed of 1,900 m/min producing facial tissue of high quality and low basis weight.

The rebuild, jointly supplied by Kawanoe Zoki and Metso's Pulp, Paper, and Power business, the future Valmet, includes an Advantage DCT 135 forming section, press section, Advantage AirCap yankee hood, and a yankee dryer, as well as an Advantage WetDust dust handling system.

Metso's Pulp, Paper and Power business and Kawanoe Zoki previously installed Ehime Paper's PM 11 at the same mill, which has been producing high quality tissue paper at guaranteed design speed since startup in 2003.

Ehime Paper is a member of Kami Shoji Group, the fourth biggest supplier of tissue paper in Japan. Ehime Paper is producing box tissue, toilet paper, and corrugated board products for the Japanese market.

Kawanoe Zoki is a Japanese machinery maker in the pulp and paper industry. Its products range from papermaking to converting.
