BEIJING, Jan. 2, 2018 (RISI) -Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing has fired up a new 60,000 tonne/yr tissue PM at its Hongmei mill in Dongguan city, Guangdong province, China.
Dubbed TM 12, the Voith-supplied unit churned out its first sheet of paper in late December.
It is the second tissue PM at the site. An identical one came online there about a month ago.
Each of them has a trim width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,000 m/min.
Their start-ups have boosted Lee & Man’s total tissue capacity to 630,000 tonnes/yr.
