OREANDA-NEWS. June 13, 2012. In mid-May 2012, Toscotec started-up the first TT SYD (Steel Yankee Dryer) installed in Japan. Thanks to the fruitful collaboration with Toscotec local agent Shinsei Corporation, the TT SYD-12FT was supplied to Nishinihon Eizai Co. Ltd., a leading producer of tissue located in Tatsuno-cho, near Osaka, as the company said in a press release received by Lesprom Network.

Nishinihon Eizai was founded in 1963, and is managed by Yasuhito Goda, who is the third generation of the family to manage the business. The mill houses five paper machines and produces 2,500 tons per month of toilet roll and tissue towel made from 100% waste paper.

The new TT SYD-12FT replaced the old 12 FT Cast IronYankee on Tatsuno-cho PM2. After the start up the machine speed was increased of 18% with a considerable energy saving – a key issue in Japan.

Toscotec is a leading company in the design, manufacturing and delivery of complete plants and equipment for the production of tissue, paper and board.
