Raw Materials For Tissue Paper Production

In fact, most of our tissue paper processing factories use base paper purchased from paper mills. Through various machine processing, toilet roll, napkin, facial tissue, etc. are produced. Because the cost of raw materials to large rolls of paper is relatively high. Therefore, you need a fully automatic paper making line. The raw materials used in paper making are mainly cellulosic materials, including wood, bamboo, straw, hemp plants, cotton, waste paper, etc.

Which Equipment To Buy To Produce Tissue Paper?

Considering that many users are new to the tissue paper production business, the following is a list of related equipment that you need to purchase.

1To produce toilet rolls, you need to purchase a rewinding machine, slitting machine, and toilet roll packaging machine. Small factories can only buy one rewinder. A medium-sized factory recommends that you purchase a rewinder + a semi-automatic slitting machine + a manual sealing machine. Large factories recommend that you purchase fully automatic equipment.
2To produce a napkin, you only need to buy a paper napkin machine. In addition, if you have packaging needs, you can buy a paper napkin packaging machine.
3To produce facial tissue, you need to purchase facial tissue folding machine, paper cutter, and packing machine. The folding machine has 2 rows, 3 rows, 5 rows, 7 rows, and other models. The more rows, the greater the production output. Paper cutters and wrappers are also available in semi-automatic and fully automatic models.
4If your factory wants to produce a variety of tissue paper, it is recommended that you consult a professional tissue paper making machine manufacturer to purchase suitable equipment.
