Both corrugated case material machines with installed capacity totalling 1 million tpy are up and running now at Sun Paper's pulp and paper mill in Muang Phin.

China's Sun Paper Holdings has started up its second recycled corrugated case material machine at the Muang Phin pulp and paper mill in Laos' southern province of Savannakhet. According to Voith, machine start-up occurred on 10 January, two and a half weeks ahead of schedule.

Last December, Sun Paper Laos already kicked off production on the containerboard machine PM 1.

With a width of 6.6 m and a design speed of 1,200 m/min the two Voith-supplied packaging paper machines are geared for a total production capacity of 1 million tpy. The PM 1 can produce 520,000 tpy of containerboard grades in basis weights of 140-250 g/m². Production capacity of PM 2 is put at 480,000 tpy of packaging paper grades in basis weights of 100-150 g/m².
