  • Sichuan Huaqiao Fenghuang Paper successfully starts up its state-of-the-art PM 6 packaging paper machine at its Guanghan site in Sichuan Province
  • As the leading full-line supplier, Voith supplied the entire line and exceeded expectations by installation to start-up in only six months
  • Close cooperation between Voith and Huaqiao Fenghuang Paper teams led to fast and successful implementation

GUANGHAN/HEIDENHEIM. On August 13, Sichuan Huaqiao Fenghuang Paper successfully started up its highly efficient XcelLine packaging paper machine at the Guanghan site. The leading full-line supplier Voith delivered the entire line. The project set a new record for the fastest start-up of such a paper machine. Only six months passed from installation to successful start-up – two months ahead of schedule. The commissioning of the BlueLine OCC stock preparation system and the XcelLine paper machine took just four and five weeks, respectively. 

PM 6 has a width of 7.92 meters and a design speed of 1,400 meters per minute. It mainly produces high-quality packaging paper in the range of 90 to 170 gsm and has an annual production capacity of about 400,000 tons. The associated BlueLine OCC stock preparation line has an impressive capacity of 2,200 tons per day and is currently the largest OCC line in the Asian market. 

Voith not only supplied the intelligent XcelLine paper machine and BlueLine OCC stock preparation line, but also leading control systems such as MCS, QCS, DCS, QMS and OnCare.Health. These advanced solutions enable full automation of the production process, ensuring stable product quality, a reliable process, and lower operating and maintenance costs. In addition, PM 6 uses Voith's latest industrial design, which combines the outstanding performance of the XcelLine paper machine with a high level of industrial aesthetics. 

The excellent start-up performance is the result of the joint efforts of both teams. Voith's teams in China and Germany worked closely together to respond quickly to customer requirements. Early partial deliveries, shortening of installation and run-in phases, and other measures ensured that customer expectations were met in the best possible way. At the same time, the Sichuan Huaqiao Fenghuang Paper team demonstrated outstanding implementation strength and professional competence.
