Tissue Baling

Re-Defined!

Along with our single ram models,
American Baler now combines an
automatic plastic strapping system with
our narrow-box two ram baler to create
an extremely versatile tissue baling
system. We select the finest materials
and components,
ensuring a lower
operating cost per ton. With the vision and
tenacity of an eagle, American Baler
takes performance to new heights.

system currently feeding PM 1, the first Recard machine supplied,
running at 1,500 m/min and producing 80 metric tpd.
On October 19, 2017, Encore Tissue started up a new Toscotec
steel yankee dryer on ET3 at its Laverton North mill, Melbourne,
Australia. The rebuilt tissue machine started producing high quality
tissue paper immediately after startup. The Australian tissue maker
purchased a second generation TT SYD of 3,600 mm diameter, to
replace an existing cast iron yankee. Following the installation of
Toscotec's steel yankee dryer, Encore Tissue expects to increase the
machine operating speed from 1,400 m/min to 1,900 m/min. It also
expects an increase in production and machine efficiency, and a real
improvement of the finished product quality, from the point of view
of homogeneity of the tissue structure.
According to the Chesterfield Observer, a Virginia state agency is
taking possession of a 58-acre Chesterfield industrial parcel owned
by Chinese paper company Tranlin, seemingly signaling the end of
its ambitious plan to build a $2 billion production facility off U.S.
Route 1. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership's board
of directors voted to transfer the property's title to VEDP and satisfy
part of Tranlin Inc.'s $4.85 million outstanding debt.
China's Hengan International has fired up a new 60,000-metric
tpy tissue PM at its mill in Weifang city, Shandong province. Dubbed
PM 21, the Valmet unit churned out its first sheet of paper in late
January. It has a net sheet width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,000
m/min. The mill runs four other tissue production lines with a combined capacity of 230,000 tonnes/yr. Back in 2012, Hengan ordered
eight 60,000-metric ton/yr tissue machines; four from Andritz, and
four from Valmet. PM 21 is the seventh to come onstream. The last
one, also supplied by Valmet, is expected to start trial runs at the
Weifang plant in May.
In late December, the new Voith XcelLine tissue machine TM 12
was successfully started up at Guangdong Lee & Man, taking only
28 minutes from "stock on wire" to "paper on reel." From the very
first parent roll produced, the tissue was of saleable quality. TM 12
was the fourth XcelLine tissue machine that was launched by Voith for
Lee & Man in 2017; the previous three were TM 9, TM 10 and TM 11.
With a wire width of 5,600 mm, the TM 12 is designed for a maximum
operational speed of 2000 m/min. It will produce 60,000 metric tpy
of household tissue annually from virgin fiber.
