Capitalize on folded tissue product trends with MTC MyFold

12.11.2021 | Giovacchino Giurlani | 3 min read Topics | ,

The global tissue paper market continues to experience rapid growth. Currently valued at $3.61 billion, it is expected to reach $4.4 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 5%.1 Likewise, the global facial tissue market is projected to grow from its $12.68 billion valuation in 2021 to $15.92 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 6%.

Demand includes some correlation to COVID-19 precautionary measures. As commerce reopens internationally, away from home (AFH) applications such as folded towels in restrooms are re-emerging. As for individual applications, disposable incomes factor into use. Facial tissue, for example, saw increased use among the middle class in Asia-Pacific countries (China, Australia, Singapore, and India), followed by modest upticks in North America and the United Kingdom where tissue products are already prevalent.3

As a result of sustained growth and future projections, tissue manufacturers and converters understandably have renewed interest in folded products. The challenge for some is finding high-quality tissue interfolding equipment with an excellent price-quality ratio and quick delivery. 

Gaining competitive advantage with MTC MyFold

Kӧrber meets the requirements of tissue manufacturers and converters with MTC MyFold. Off the shelf, ready to run, and competitively priced MTC MyFold lines are designed to allow a good level of customization while assuring consistently high performance and product quality.

The predefined configurations are optimized to balance performance, quality, and investment — a significant benefit for manufacturers seeking equipment that:

  • Aligns the performance and price ratio
  • Minimizes investment risk
  • Offers short delivery times

The MTC MyFold lines are available in two versions:

  • MTC MyFold facial for the production of 2 and 3 ply facial products
  • MTC MyFold towel for the production of single and double-ply hand towel products.

Both lines incorporate 1,400 mm interfolder formats and Kӧrber-patented folding and vacuum systems for best-in-class performance at medium and high speeds, including:

  • Up to 20 cycles per minute
  • Speeds of 220 meters per minute for facial products, and 250 meters per minute for towel products
  • Ability to process parent rolls up to formats of 2,900 mm

Sustainability solutions

MTC MyFold lines also help tissue manufacturers and converters address sustainability initiatives. For interfolded AFH products like folded paper towels, an MTC inline banding machine delivers excellent finished product density that:

  • Translates to a nicer pack presentation
  • Reduces finished product bulk and volume, thereby shrinking carbon footprints
  • Enables more product to be shipped using fewer trucks for less environmental impactful transportation

Given the rapid growth of the global hand towel and facial tissue markets, expanding into interfolded products is the next logical step for tissue manufacturers and converters. MTC MyFold lines make the transition easy and competitively advantageous. Reach out to the Kӧrber team to learn more about MTC MyFold and the other proven Kӧrber solutions.
