GREEN BAY, Wis. — April 18, 2017 — Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of the Barry-Wehmiller family, has announced the sale of a new XF800 wrapper to Sun Paper in Duncan, South Carolina.

The XF800 is replacing a reciprocating wrapper that was a bottleneck on one of Sun Paper’s existing winder lines.

“PCMC’s continuous flow technology gives us increased throughput on a broad range of products from a single machine,” said Joe Salgado, Executive Vice President at Sun Paper. “We’re also excited about the improved change repeatability and the simpler operating system that the XF800 provides.”

As part of the family of packaging products from PCMC, the XF800 wrapper features a continuous motion design, flexible layout options and motorized adjustments for fast initial pack setup. With an optional fifth infeed lane and third level, it can adapt to a variety of packaging projects to meet the ever-changing needs facing the tissue industry today.

“This purchase is the result of creative thinking to solve a customer’s problem and steward the trust placed in us,” said Bob Schuh, Tissue Packaging Sales Director for PCMC. “Project team members from Sun Paper and PCMC took a holistic view of Sun Paper’s current production environment and future goals. In doing so, we actually codeveloped a solution outside of the original scope of the project that positions Sun Paper for even greater success through added efficiency and easier operations.”

The Sun Paper XF800 wrapper, the latest in an extraordinary boom in PCMC packaging equipment orders, is scheduled for installation in October 2017.

Sun Paper is a family-owned consumer products manufacturer in Duncan, South Carolina, with a primary focus on private label bath tissue, kitchen towels, napkins and facial tissue. Sun Paper’s products are found in major retailers across the country.
