The machine performed excellently during the record run, with a high efficiency rate (97 %) and extremely good runnability. The machine ran at a speed of 2,020 m/min for a period of 36 hours. General Manager of Rhein Papier, Juha Ebeling commented: "TMO had a significant impact on setting this record! This would never have been possible without the TMO duo, which worked like a dream on the first press. At best the dry content measured over 55 %, when the speed exceeded 2,000 m/min. The edges of the web moved evenly through the press and dryer sections, and we succeeded in keeping the draw between the press and dryer section small. These factors determine the machine's runnability, because if there are problems here, it will lead to breaks and a reduction in speed."
