April 14, 2011 - 21:12

PINEROLO, Italy, April 15, 2011 (Press Release) -

The Yuen Foong Yu PM#1 at Hsin Wu mill in Taiwan was successfully started up on February 14th 2011, after PMT Italia had been selected by YFY as a key partner for the supply of machinery and engineering.

The investment focused on machine efficiency and paper quality improvement to the highest targets, implying the rebuild of the key sections of the paper machine.

PMT Italia's supply included a new PMT M4 Headbox with dilution system for the back ply and the rebuild of the two existing Headboxes, redesign and reconstruction of the Wire Section into a 3 plies Fourdrinier configuration with upgraded Dewatering System. A new Film Size Press was installed along with new After Dryer Section, new Calender and Reel upgrade. The machine runnability was improved in the critical areas of the dryer section also by means of a new Tail Threading through Film Size Press to Reel. A new MCS for the entire Paper Machine control completed the scope of supply of PMT Italia.

The project was successfully driven to the final targets through the tight and efficient cooperation between YUEN FOONG YU and PMT Italia teams.

This result enabled PMT Italia to strengthen its relationship with YUEN FOONG YU and to consolidate its presence in Asia.
