Global technology company Voith Group has announced that its XcelLine packaging paper machine has officially been commissioned by Chinese paper manufacturer Sichuan Huaqiao Fenghuang Paper.
The newly delivered manufacturing line is now operational at the paper company’s facility in Guanghan, Sichuan, China.
The latest milestone comes just six months after the Chinese company installed the machine at its site. The start-up of this machine has been achieved two months ahead of its stipulated timeframe.
This is the fastest-witnessed start-up of such a PM 6 packaging paper machine, Voith noted.
Fenghuang Paper project manager Yang Lichang said: “The successful start-up will further increase Huaqiao Fenghuang’s production capacity and create a solid foundation for our future development.”
Fenghuang Paper took four and five weeks for the final commissioning of the BlueLine OCC stock preparation system and the XcelLine paper machine, respectively.

The 7.92m-wide PM 6 packaging machine, which has been developed to manufacture high-quality packaging paper in the 90gsm to 170gsm range, has a design speed of roughly 1,400m per minute.
It has the capacity to produce approximately 400,000 tons (t) of paper per annum.
Meanwhile, the associated BlueLine OCC stock preparation line offers a capacity of 2,200t per day.
In addition to these two machines, Voith also delivered control systems, including MCS, QCS, DCS, QMS and OnCare.Health, to the paper company.
Together, all these advanced solutions help provide full automation of the production process to Fenghuang Paper while ensuring the stability, quality, and reliability of the products at lower operating and maintenance costs.
Voith Paper Asia-Pacific’s Order Processing and Operations senior vice-president Carlos Lin said: “The successful start-up of PM 6 exemplifies the strong technical competence and professional qualifications of both teams, and it also demonstrates the benefits of full-line delivery from Voith.
“The full-line delivery reduces integration and coordination efforts for the customer, lowers operational risk and ensures product quality, all of which increase product competitiveness.”
