Vaahto’s headboxes proving a hit in China
Vaahto Pulp & Paper Machinery recently received more orders from China for its headboxes. This time the customers are Dongguan Jianhui Paper Co. Ltd. and Dongguan Jinzhou Paper Co. Ltd., which have contracted Vaahto to supply four dilution control headboxes for their new production lines in Guangdong Province.
The new headboxes will see the companies become two of the most important manufacturers of testliner in southern China. Delivery is scheduled for mid-2011.
In the spring, Vaahto won an order to supply four HQZ headboxes to plasterboard producer, Taishan Gypsum Co. Ltd., in Shandong Province; one of these will be equipped with an advanced consistency control system to ensure cross-machine profiling. Two of the headboxes are due to be delivered at the end of this year and the other two in early 2011.
