2,200 mpm constant speed


WEPA Giershagen  is steadily operating its Toscotec-supplied AHEAD-2.0S tissue line (PM19) at the speed of 2,200 mpm. PM19 came online in October 2015 and after a machine speed-up, reached the constant speed of 2,200 mpm. Based on this result, WEPA sets a new world record in the tissue industry for machine speed in continuous running conditions.

The AHEAD-2.0S line is dedicated to the production of high quality tissue from 15 to 16.5 gsm basis weight. WEPA maximized its efficiency and achieved top performance in terms of production capacity with low energy consumption. PM19 production fulfils the quality parameters of WEPA’s super-soft toilet paper.
