International technology Group Andritz received an order from Shin-Ei Paper, Japan, to supply two tissue machines with Steel Yankees to its location in Fuji city. The machines, which will be used for producing high-quality tissue from recycled fiber, are scheduled to start up at the beginning of 2015.
The new PrimeLineCompact machines are designed for speeds of 1,800 m/min with paper widths of 2,8 m. They will be equipped with PrimeDry Steel Yankees to achieve high drying capacity at minimal energy costs.
Satoshi Kurosaki, President of Shin-Ei Paper, states: «Doh-Ei Paper, one of our group’s companies, replaced a cast iron Yankee with an Andritz Steel Yankee in 2012. As promised, higher drying capacity and energy savings were achieved. During the tender phase for the two new tissue machines, we had a lot of constructive discussions with Andritz engineers and they proposed various possibilities to improve the production efficiency. We consider Andritz to be a reliable supplier».
