With the new tissue machine supplied by Recard Klippan mill now offers tissue paper capacity in excess of 40,000 tpy.
Swedens tissue paper manufacturer Klippans Bruk, formerly Svenska Pappersbruket, started production on its new TM 11 last week. The company was now concentrating its work on achieving the correct specifications and quality standards, it said. Klippans Bruk expects the trimming period with start-up orders to take a couple of weeks.
The Klippan mill is specialized in the production of paper for coloured table napkins. The company reportedly invested €15m (SEK150m) in the new tissue machine with a wire width of 3.2 m and a construction speed of 1,700 m/min. Klippans Bruk puts the capacity of the new tissue machine at 30,000 tpy. The investment is said to quadruple Klippan mill's production capacity and create 20-25 new jobs.
