Why Jota Automatic Facial Tissue Making Machine


Last Update Time:22/11/2022

Mr. Faisal, a Saudi Arabian client, purchased three production lines of household paper-related products from Jota Machinery last month, one of which is an automatic facial tissue making machine.

From Mr. Faisal establishing contact with us to Mr. Faisal purchasing 3 tissue paper production lines, the whole process is a process of mutual trust accumulation.

Mr. Faisal is a project manager. Before contacting us, he did not know anything about the facial tissue production line.

In order to assist Mr. Faisal to understand the facial tissue production line as soon as possible, our Jota sales always answer Mr. Faisal’s questions in a timely manner.

First of all, our Jota sales team made a detailed facial tissue making flow chart for Mr. Faisal, so that Mr. Faisal can have a basic understanding of the facial tissue production process.


After a basic understanding of the facial tissue production process, we introduced these related machines to Mr. Faisal one by one.

The first is the facial tissue folding machine.


The facial tissue machine is the so-called facial tissue folding machine.

As for the box draws and soft draws we usually mention, they are distinguished according to the different packaging methods.


Box draws


Soft draws

Generally, those packed in boxes are called box-draw facial tissue; those packed in plastic bags are called soft-draw facial tissue.

Regardless of box draws or soft draws, the facial tissues inside are both processed by a facial tissue folding machine.

The mother roll facial tissue is placed on the unwind stand by hoisting device, and each unwind stand is equipped with an independent motor to drive the web to move forward;


During the web forwarding process, it is firstly embossed by an edge embossing unit;


Edge embossing unit

Then it is cut by a rotary sheet cutting blades set, and the cutting position is determined by the expansion sheet size, expansion sheet size is preset on the touch screen;

Then fold the expansion sheet into a half-folded sheet through the vacuum folding roller (including the adjustable vacuum air valve at both ends);


Vacuum Folding Roller


Vacuum Pump

A sheet separating manipulator then transfers the half-folded sheet to the curved stainless steel guide plate.

The automatic counting device will automatically calculate the number of half-folded sheets during the shifting process.

After counting, the half-folded sheet enters the discharging pallet (which includes power transmission and adjustable speed) and awaits connection with the log saw cutter.

During the operation of the facial tissue folding machine, waste is generated; this waste is absorbed by the vacuum adsorption fan and then discharged.

A vacuum adsorption fan, can prevent the waste from affecting the machine’s operation, and ensure the smooth progress of production.

Some customers not only require edge embossing on facial tissues, but they also require pattern embossing on facial tissues.

We can customize the embossing station according to your requirements.


Pattern embossing station

Let the web pass through the pattern embossing station before entering the edge embossing unit, and the embossing pattern can also be customized according to your requirements.

After the semi-finished facial tissue is produced by the facial tissue folding machine, it needs to be cut by a log saw cutting machine.


Log saw cutting machine

Jota facial tissue log saw cutting machine is equipped with a servo system, which can cut semi-finished facial tissues with a length of 400-2000mm, the width of 90-120mm, and a height of 10-120mm (other sizes can customized)

The cutting length range is 80-250mm, and the maximum cutting speed can reach 180 cuts/min.

The log saw blades above the conveying channel are responsible for cutting semi-finished facial tissues.


Log saw blade

The cut surface’s verticality tolerance is 1mm, and the cut surface’s length tolerance is also 1mm, ensuring the best cutting quality and improving the flatness and beauty of the finished tissue paper.

The log saw blades have an automatic lubrication and sharpening system that can sharpen the blade automatically based on the cutting time.

At the same time, the sharpening and lubrication time can be adjusted through the touch screen.

Jota facial tissue log saw cutter can be equipped with single-channel and dual-channel, and each channel can be equipped with an independent servo motor.

In order to ensure more accurate cutting of 180 times per minute, Jota facial tissue log saw cutter also introduced a photoelectric sensor for edge position control, which can effectively correct edge deviation.

The facial tissue paper length can be set via touch screen control on the Jota facial tissue log saw cutter.

The control precision can reach 0.1mm, and the length-adjustable cutting range is 80-250mm (when the cutting length is greater than 180mm, the cutting speed will decrease).

Obviously, the servo drive unit and frequency inverter are indispensable to the operation of our Jota facial tissue log saw cutting machine.

The most important aspect is that the machine is equipped with a sophisticated PLC to receive and send multiple commands, ensuring the machine operates continuously and in an orderly fashion.


After log saw cutting, the semi-finished facial tissues are converted into finished facial tissues, and then the packaging process is about to begin.

The stacked finished facial tissues come out of the log saw cutter and usually enter the individual packaging conveyor belt first.


If the log saw cutter is connected to a fully automatic facial tissue folding machine, the stacked facial tissue will automatically enter the conveyor belt of the individual packing machine;

If the log saw cutter is connected to a semi-automatic facial tissue folding machine, the operator needs to put the stacked finished facial tissues on the transfer line of the individual packing machine.

The finished facial tissues are first flattened by a flattening station, then sorted out, and then pushed to the nylon pushrod.

Stacks of finished facial tissues line up in front of the nylon pushrod and wait to be pushed to the support plate.

The finished facial tissue is lifted up by the cylinder on the paper support plate to the packaging pushrod and then pushed into the packaging station by the packaging pushrod.

The vertical sealing is performed first, and the upper and lower film guides are coordinated to complete, and then go through the moving film guide, fold the film up and down, side iron, and finally complete the individual packing.


The specific process can refer to in the following video.

We designed the control panel for the Jota individual facial tissue packaging machine.

During operation, there will be no abnormal vibration, noise, or temperature spikes, and the operating speed is very stable.

The machine has a 2m buffer conveyor belt for storing facial tissue, and the paper-contacting component is made of stainless steel (toilet paper feeding conveyor belt material is food grade PU).

The wrapping film feeding is controlled by a servo motor and a control board, and the positioning of the pattern area is precise.

The feeding conveyor is fitted with a tapping device to create a smooth packaging effect.

Controlling the film cutting is a servo-driven rotary spring cutting machine.

If there is no facial tissue paper, the machine will not pull out the film, and the rotary spring cutter will not cut, which can extend the cutter’s life.

The machine can detect facial tissues that are too long or too short to prevent overload protection, so as to avoid damage to the host cam brake and folder.

The machine is equipped with 3 film guides and 5 tissue paper conveyors to ensure that there are no empty bags and no facial tissue paper jams during the production process, thus improving the production efficiency of the machine.

The seal is very neat and there is no folding failure.

The main motor has reverse rotation control, and the speed can be changed freely.

Operation faults and problems will be displayed on the HMI, and you can check them in time.

The double-head bag packing machine is connected to an individual facial tissue packing machine.


Such a machine only needs one operator to carry out the bagging work in front of the machine.

After the facial tissue bagging is completed, press the manual button and the machine will automatically bag the soft-draw facial tissue, automatically fold, automatically cut, and seal.

This facial tissue cutting machine adopts PLC control, and speed, temperature, and packaging size are adjustable;

Automatic bagging, automatic folding, automatic sealing, and the sealing cut adopt double temperature control and are formed by the machine.

The sealing effect is beautiful and square.

The machine is easy to operate and can save labor more effectively.

If you plan to purchase a facial tissue machine, please feel free to send us an inquiry on this website, and we will reply to you in detail as soon as possible.

Automatic Facial Tissue Making Machine Ultimate FAQ Guide


Facial Tissue Making Machine

Facial Tissue Paper Making Machine

Paper towels include facial tissues, paper napkins, and paper handkerchiefs.

They must be made from virgin wood pulp, have a certain degree of stretchability, will not be damaged after soaking in water, and facial tissue can directly touch your mouth, fruits, food, etc., and it can also be suitable for babies.

Paper towels are positioned to clean your face and hands. Facial tissue paper has certain requirements for wet toughness.

It is produced from virgin wood pulp, which requires a soft and unbreakable texture, and quickly absorbs moisture. Otherwise, it is easy to produce paper scraps when wiping your face.

Facial Tissue Paper is made of interwoven fibers.

After absorbing a certain amount of moisture and wiping, the interlinks between the fibers will be destroyed and pieces of small paper scraps will be formed.

Facial tissues of better quality have a certain degree of wet strength, so this embarrassing phenomenon will not occur.

A good facial tissue-making machine adopts the most advanced technology to ensure that during the production process, through the instant high-temperature heat treatment of 450 degrees, it kills the bacteria on the surface and is harmless to the human being body.

Paper manufacturing is a capital-intensive enterprise, and the raw materials of facial tissue machinery require high circulation funds and have high requirements for environmental protection.

In addition, the requirements for sewage treatment after paper making are very high, and we need to protect our global.

A high-quality facial tissue-making machine is equipped with multiple processes, such as pulp production, impurity filtration, paper screening, drying, calendering, rewinding, slitting, and cross-sheet cutting.

And it has combined different sectors: industrial design, software program control, mechanical design, pneumatic circuit system, etc., is a relatively complex device.

Due to the many technologies and processes involved, large companies with strong capabilities will generally consider introducing advanced facial tissue making machines, while small companies or individuals only need to consider buying a ready-made tissue facial paper mother roll from them directly.

Because for the manufacture of facial tissue paper, the quality of the paper depends on the quality of wood pulp, which is generally made from logs as raw materials, mixed with a little straw pulp or recycled pulp.

The thickness of the paper depends on the thickness of the pulp on the screen wire and the pressure of the calendering roller. These are the determinants of good facial tissue.

The fiber in different facial tissue paper is different, which will affect the experience of use.

Understand the difference between several common names on product packaging and instructions, so that you will not be confused when choosing.

Generally speaking, the fiber content of “virgin wood pulp” is about 80% or more. Therefore, the facial tissue paper made of virgin wood pulp is uniform and delicate, and there are fewer functional pharmaceutical ingredients added to the wood pulp, which is healthier.

There are two main types of virgin wood pulp, hardwood pulp (hardwood pulp) and softwood pulp (softwood pulp).

The fiber of hardwood pulp is shorter and softer, which can give the facial tissue paper a better hand feeling but lower strength.

Softwood pulp has longer fibers, which can enhance the flexibility of facial tissue paper. Usually, high-quality roll paper is mixed with two wood pulps to make the paper flexible and comfortable.

There may be more recycled facial tissue paper mixed in “pure wood pulp”.

In the process of regenerating tissue pulp in the facial tissue making machine. the ink must be removed before bleaching, and only after several strict treatments can it be made into qualified toilet tissue paper.

Recycled materials are often difficult to control the quality of raw materials, so it is also difficult to make truly quality facial tissue paper.

There are many types of straw pulp in “virgin pulp”, including wheat straw pulp, bamboo pulp, bagasse pulp, and so on. The fiber content of this type of material is low, about 50%.

Almost all of the popular “primary color paper” in recent years is made of straw pulp.

Because it has not been bleached, it will give people a more healthy feeling. However, straw pulp paper feels hard and has low flexibility. In order to improve performance, many chemicals need to be added to soften and bleach the papermaking process. Long-term use can also cause skin irritation. Please take care.

Therefore, among all the raw materials, the most healthy and comfortable is the “virgin wood pulp” paper. However, no matter what kind of tissue paper can not be used as a substitute for facial tissue, because the testing standards of the two are different, products that meet the roll paper standard may not meet the standard of facial tissue paper.

Therefore, toilet tissue paper can only be used as toilet paper and cleaning wiping paper.

Facial tissue making machine operation process

A facial tissue-making machine is to convert the tissue paper jumbo roll into facial tissues.

After the folded facial tissues are packed in boxes, they will become box drawn facial tissues.


When in use, it is taken out one by one from the box, which is convenient and trouble-free.

The operation process of the facial tissue making machine is rough as follows:

1. The main operator first presses the start-up alarm signal, lets the dedicated worker know that it has entered the paper unwinding state.

2. First restore the length counter to the “0” position, and turn the selection button to the counter starting position.

3. Turn on the tension control (the tension control has automatic and manual types, which can be switched mutually).

4. Press the start button, the indicator light is on, and turn the speed-up handle to the right.

And then, turn the tension set knob (the given tension indicator has a digital display at this time, and the actual number matches the tension setting number).

5. Generally, the starting speed is between 100~150m/min.

After it is stabilized, when the roll diameter reaches 300~400mm, the speed will gradually increase to an appropriate speed (about 600m/min).

6. While the speed of the facial tissue machine is gradually increased, the assistant operator should pay close attention to the subtle changes in the paper surface of the roll.

If folds, twists, knife-edge bite, etc. are found, immediately adjust the pressure roller fine-tuning handwheel.

When the south side pleats, the handwheel is driven to the right and presses down;

When the north side pleats, the handwheel is driven to the left and lifted up.

And immediately sends a message to the main operator to increase or decrease the tension.

7. The main operator observes the edge trimming of the paper surface and the end face of the roll while the speed is stable and normal.

According to the change of the paper surface, the oil pump of the press roll can be turned on or off to ensure the quality of the roll.

8. If the paper web suddenly breaks, the main operator immediately presses the stop button and at the same time rotates the deceleration handle to the “0” position, and the facial tissue machine stops.

10. The main operator should strictly control the roll diameter and length required by the process standard.

When the length standard is reached, first turn the deceleration handle to the “0” position, and at the same time turn the tension knob to the right with the left hand to increase the tension setting.

At this time, the machine speed can be smoothly decelerated, press the stop button to stop the operation.

Facial Tissue Folding Machine

Facial tissue paper folding machine

The facial tissue folding machine is to emboss, folds, counts and cut the paper into facial tissue with a clear, clean, and beautiful embossed pattern.

This machine completes the entire processing at one time.

This facial tissue folding machine has a high degree of automation, good quality, fast speed, and high efficiency.

It is the ideal for special equipment for the post-processing of household paper.

In each of your daily lives, you need toilet tissue paper or facial tissue paper always. As a daily necessity, facial tissue paper has a very wide market requirement.

Generally speaking, there are two types of tissue paper, one is toilet tissue paper and the other is facial tissue paper. They have different paper viscosity requirements.

If you would like to start a tissue paper business and open a facial tissue processing factory, then you need a facial tissue paper folding machine, a fully automatic log saw cutting machine and three-dimension V-folded single packaging machine, and automatic bagging machines.

I will share the toilet tissue paper business in another chapter. Now let’s focus on the business of facial tissue paper for you.

The Folded Tissue facial Paper Wrapping line consists of a toilet paper folding machine, a fully automatic paper log saw cutting machine, and a single packaging machine. The toilet paper folding machine can generally process multi-layer of tissue paper: 1 layer, 2 layers, 3 layers, 4 layers, or even 5 layers.

at the same time. After the full set of embossing roller devices (optional), then the two sides embossing, or the four sides embossing, and finally go to the folding station, to form a continuous V-folded facial tissue paper.

Then perform a certain cross cutting, the number of v-folded sheets is 100sheets or 200sheets, enter the automatic log saw cutter, cut into a size of about 197mm in length, and then automatically transfer go to the automatic single packaging machine for single package packaging.

At present, this kind of packaging method is very mature. The well-packed single-pack paper towels can be bagging packaging for 6 packs or 12 packs.

Facial tissue paper is different from toilet paper equipment. It has high requirements for the environment. First of all, your toilet paper mother roll itself is sterilized at 450 degrees, which does not harm the human being.

In addition, when packaging, try to use automated machines to reduce the possibility of labor hand touch. At present, a mature facial tissue paper production line can be reduced to 2-3 workers, which is very intelligent and has high output.

The facial tissue paper folding machine is generally 7 rows or 9 rows or 11rows. It means that you can produce 7packs, 9 packs, or 11 packs of tissues at the same time.

Regarding the output, the 5 rows folding machine’s average output is about 1.5 tons, and the 7 rows folding machine’s 8 hours productivity is around 1.5 tons to 2Tons.

With the development of technology and the increase in market demand, some customers want to increase the folding productivity output, so they require a wider machine, which can produce facial tissue paper with 11 rows, 12 rows, or more than 13 rows. It is currently available on the market.

But I still suggest that you just start to consider a 7-row or 9-row machine, which will be more stable and efficient.

Regarding embossing devices, there are generally two types of embossing, one is full size embossing roller, and the other is an edge-side embossing roller.

Edge side embossing is a standard configuration included in our machine, you can choose different patterns according to your requirements.

If it is full-size embossing, it is basically necessary to customize a pair of metal embossing rollers.

Different patterns require different embossing rollers. One size requires a pair of independent embossing rollers. The cost is also costly between USD12000-15000. So I suggest you choose more universal embossing patterns.

Of course, we will also give you more patterns to choose from. The following are some patterns we improved.

Between the unwinding stand and the folding machine frame, this pair of independent embossing rollers will be installed. They are powered by separate motors.

The upper material is harder than the lower material, which could increase the embossing roller’s service life. If you can maintain your health for the next three to five years, the average lifespan is acceptable. The pressure exerted on the embossing roller has a significant impact on its service life.

After the embossing roller passes through the facial tissue paper, it will be pressed together to form a whole layer, and then it will enter the next station for folding.

If the facial tissue paper has not gone through full size embossing, it will be pressed into a size edge embossing device, and then it will enter the folding device.

Now we have also optimized the folding device of the machine.

There are more 3 servo motors to control the whole action to ensure that the length of the folding is consistent with the effect of interfolding. And the size of the first paper and the last paper is the same, with high precision.

Fully automatic facial tissue folding machine

The automatic facial tissue folding machine is based on the ordinary facial tissue machine with an automatic sorting unit, which automatically arranges the folded stacks of facial tissue sheets to the transmission line.

Ordinary facial tissue machines need to manually place the stacked facial tissue sheets on the transmission line.

In the early period of the facial tissue business, Due to the fund’s limitation and sales network locally, we usually purchase semi-automatic facial tissue folding machines.

But with the expansion of the sales network, more and more customers come to you, and you will find that semi-automatic hand towel V-folding machine is no longer meet your needs. At this moment, you start to consider a Fully Automatic Facial Tissue Folding Manufacturing Machine Production Line.

If you have worked with facial tissues before, you know that all of the other equipment, like log saw cutting machines and single packaging machines, is only semi-automatic.

The facial tissue folding machine, on the other hand, is controlled by PLC and HMI, which is more intelligent and smart.

Because of this, a semi-automatic line for making facial tissues needs at least 3–4 workers and has a high labor cost.

Is it possible to hook up all of the machines to make a fully automatic V-folding machine for facial tissues?

As a professional manufacturer of facial tissue folding machines in China, Jota machinery has a professional R&D engineering team that can help you find a solution to your problem.

Our fully automatic facial tissue folding production line is made up of a fully automatic facial tissue folding machine, a fully automatic log saw cutting machine, and a fully automatic transmission belt.

kitchen paper towel single-packaging machine that is fully automatic

Face tissue towel bagging machine with a transmission belt that does everything by itself.

The whole line is controlled by PLC, and each point is controlled by a precise infrared sensor. All actions are completed in consecution under the control of the servo motor.

Such a hand towel-making line can save 3-4 workers and qualify hand towel packaging.

It can produce 2-3ton facial tissue paper in 8 hours. The kitchen towel V-folding-making machine speed is 130m/min, working speed is 100m/min. so the productivity of facial towel making is 1000 sheets /min /row. It is amazing!

Why our facial tissue towel V folding machine could reach such a high speed of 100m/min? our professional

engineering team specially optimized the rotary cutters, especially, the upper rotary knife installed an air-sucking device to keep the paper-feeding function stable.

The fully automatic tension control system installed on the machine also played an important role in the Hand Towel V folding. Only constant tension can keep a high-speed running and output.

If you are already engaged in the toilet paper or facial tissue paper business or hand towel making or kitchen towel manufacturing for many years, now you also are a headache for increasing labor costs and raw material rising costs, you can consider this fully automatic facial paper manufacturing line.

Even though the price of a fully automatic facial tissue towel production line may seem high, the sunk costs will be much lower in the long run.

In terms of efficiency and work, it also makes the business more valuable and profitable.

Facial tissue paper and hand towels are easy to sell, but they don’t bring in a lot of money. With a stable sales network, the amount of machines made is directly related to the amount of money made.

This machine makes a folding production line for facial tissues. It can also be used to make kitchen towels, facial tissues, and some high-quality kitchen and household papers.

Facial tissue is used as a raw material, but it can also be used to make non-woven fabric, kitchen paper towels, hand towels, and other things.

Facial tissue folding machine mechanical principles

The existing facial tissue folding machines first form a crease on the base paper, and then fold the paper.

The generation of creases is usually done by setting up an origami slot and generating a vacuum in the origami slot to absorb the paper in the origami slot, thereby forming a crease.

The current facial tissue folding machine generally has an air ring at both ends of the folding roller.

The air ring on the left is for the three air channels in the folding roller, and the air ring on the right is for the other three air channels in the folding roller.


In the channels, air suction is implemented respectively, inhale the suction holes on the folding roller.

Facial tissue folding machine common faults and troubleshooting

1. The folding surface is not neat

(1) The shifting fork, paper unwinding section, and paper feeding section are unstable.

(2) The air ring of the folding roller is too late to close the air, the angle of the air ring needs to be adjusted.

Loosen the locking screw on the adjusting ring, and turn the angle of the air ring joint to make the folding knife groove and folding roller close air in advance, then tighten the screws.

(3) The board position before and after the discharge slot is wrong, and the distance between them is incorrect.

2. The paper dislocation is not obvious

The distance between the left and right push plates does not match with the two sides of the discharge slot.

The distance between the left and right push plates is equal to the material width plus 2 times the cylinder stroke.

The cylinder stroke is set to 6-8mm.

When the push plate moves to the right, the pipe edge of the push plate should be cut into the discharge slot 3-4mm.

3. The surface of the folding roller fails to fully absorb facial tissue

(1) The pump pipe and filter are blocked.

Clean the filter regularly. When you hear a dull sound, you must deal with it in time.

(2) Vacuum leakage.

2.1. The paper surface does not completely cover the suction holes of the folding roller.

Use silica gel or tape to block the suction holes on the folding roller that are not completely covered.

2.2. The gap between the air ring and the folding roller is too large.

Adjust the left and right bolts and adjust the three simultaneously to ensure that the gap is between 0.2-0.5mm, and add sealing grease.

2.3. Leakage of gas pipe or joint should be checked in time.

2.4. The speed of unwinding is lower than the speed of folding.

4. The shift fork breaks the paper

(1) The shift fork is not at the centerline of the shift fork groove between left and right folding rollers.

(2) Action time of the shift fork advances or delays, adjust the closing angle of the knife groove air ring and the swing angle of the shift fork.

(3) The unwinding speed is lower than the folding speed, and the distance between the front and backboard is incorrect, please adjust again.

5. Shift fork hangs paper

(1) The speed of unwinding is lower than the speed of folding, adjust the speed control hand wheel of the front and back unwind stands.

(2) Check the suction power and clean the suction grid.

6. The embossing is not clear or crushed

The gap between the two embossing rollers is controlled by the embossing adjustment bolt:

The gap at both ends is required to be the same, and the horizontal registration of the upper and lower embossing rollers can be adjusted by adjusting the screw nut on the embossing roller.

7. Embossing wrinkles

It can be achieved by adjusting the distance between the embossing roller and the bottom roller.

8. The belt and sprocket slip or jump

The tension wheel can be adjusted to adjust the belt or chain to achieve this.

9. The human-machine interface does not count or count failure

(1) The proximity switch is too far away from the induction zone of the shift fork, normally 2mm.

(2) The proximity switch may be out of order, please make it clear that it is an NPN model.

10. Screaming and noising when the machine rotates

(1) All chain tension wheels need to be adjusted, refueled, and check whether there is friction between the front and rear folding rollers and the air ring.

(2) The bearing of the tension wheels is burned out and needs to be replaced.

(3) Check the rotating parts or bearings and add lubricant.

11. The combination switch is closed

(1) Leakage of host or high-voltage electrical appliances;

(2) Transformer leakage;

(3) The combination switch is broken.

12. All indicator lights are off and all electrical appliances are not working

(2) Automatic protection of stabilized power supply, check whether there is a short circuit in low-voltage DC electrical appliances (whether the solenoid valve coil is burned out);

(3) The fuse for the regulated power supply output is blown.

Normally, the fuse is 1A to 1.5A.

If you replace it with a new fuse, it will also burn out.

Please check the low-voltage electrical appliances, there must be a short circuit.

Interfolded Facial Tissue Machine

The interfolded facial tissue machine is used to produce facial tissue paper commonly used in daily life.

The facial tissue folding machine has to unwind tension control, which can adapt to the production of high and low-tension sensitivity base paper;

The pattern can be rolled on the paper, the pattern is obvious and clear;

Interfolded facial tissue machine adopts step-less speed regulation, conveying, embossing, vacuum folding, rotary knife cutting;

Automatic counting and whole column outputting.

The facial tissue box packing machine is able to pack facial tissue in a carton box, its basic working process is shown in the following photo:



Facial tissue nylon packing machine

A facial tissue nylon packing machine is a machine that uses nylon plastic to pack facial tissue logs.

This kind of machine usually requires an operator to place one by one packing bags in front of the machine.

Facial tissue plastic packing machine

Facial tissue plastic packing machines mainly include nylon plastic and heat-shrinkable film packaging machines.

Nylon plastic is mainly used for bundled multi-bag packaging, and heat shrinkable film is mainly used for single packaging.

Facial Tissue Business

Is the facial tissue business profitable?

Take the facial tissue business of a small 3 lines facial tissue folding machine as an example.

The price of a small 3 lines facial tissue machine is about 75000RMB (USD$11,363.6).

The production efficiency of the 3-line facial tissue machine is 800 to 1,000 kg in 8 hours, which can greatly meet the initial production and benefit needs of small investment customers.

At present, the quality of facial tissue paper material on the market is generally better than that of toilet paper, and the cost of facial tissue raw materials is also higher.

Calculated on the basis of 9500RMB (USD$1,439.3) per ton of whole wood pulp, the current facial tissue specifications are generally 100 draws/300 sheets, and the weight of a pack is about 80g.

Then the cost of a pack is 9500/(800Kg/0.08Kg)=0.95RMB (USD$0.144).

The average cost of the soft package is 0.2RMB per pack, so the cost of a pack is 1.15RMB (USD$0.174).

Subtract 3,500RMB (USD$530.00) from the labor costs of your local three workers, electricity costs, and daily site rent, and the final result is a day’s profit.

Automatic Facial Tissue Making MachineFAQ Guide

Over the ages, skin hygiene has been the prime focus of the manufacturing industries. Therefore, tissue paper is the number one solution for this purpose.
We are familiar with regular tissue paper, which is used for various purposes. The face is a delicate part of the body, so it needs something smooth to take care of.

Everything about Facial Tissues

The tissue paper manufacturing industries focused on this problem and came up with the advent of facial tissue paper. It is a delicate piece of tissue paper made from wood pulp that doesn’t harm the facial skin.

After this fantastic production in the history of skin hygiene, the business of facial tissues is high in the market.

Jota is also aware of this growing trend, which is why it uses automatic machines to make facial tissues.
If you are new to the business of making facial tissues and want to learn more, you must read this article. You’ll learn everything you need to know to start a business selling facial tissues.

Let’s get to know what facial tissue paper is.

What Are Facial Tissue Papers Made of?

Facial tissue papers are made up of a vast network of fibers. Once the tissue paper absorbs the moisture to its fullest, it will no longer retain its original shape.

The reason is that the tiny fibers in the tissue paper break after a certain level of wiping. However, the best quality facial tissue papers have a higher strength, and you’ll not encounter such an incident.

An excellent facial tissue producing machine uses the most recent technology.

It ensures that the germs on the surface are killed throughout the production process by instant high-temperature heat treatment of 450 degrees while remaining harmless to the human body.

Let’s move toward the facial tissue paper making machine.

What Does a Facial Tissue Making Machine Do?

An advanced facial tissue production machine conducts many operations, such as

  • Pulping
  • Filtering impurities
  • Screening paper
  • Drying
  • Calendaring
  • Rewinding
  • Slitting or cross sheet cutting

Jota converts a tissue paper jumbo roll into facial tissues using a facial tissue producing machine. The folded facial tissues become box draw facial tissues after they are put in boxes.

Operation of a Facial Tissue Making Machine

The operation process of the facial tissue making machine is simple to understand.

  • You need to reset the length counter to “0” and set the selection button to the counter start point to start the machine.
  • Then, adjust the tension with the tension control (the tension control has automatic and manual types, which you can switch mutually).
  • After adjusting the tension, you need to turn the speed-up handle to the right after pressing the start button, and the indicator light comes on.
  • Then, using the tension set knob, adjust the tension (the given tension indicator has a digital display at this time, and the actual number matches the tension setting number).
  • The initial pace of the machine is usually between 100 and 150 meters per minute.
  • When the roll diameter reaches 300-400mm after stabilization, the speed gradually increases to an optimum pace (about 600m/min).
  • As the speed of the facial tissue machine increases gradually, you should be aware of tiny changes in the roll’s paper surface.
  • Adjust the pressure roller fine-tuning handwheel right away if you see folds, twists, knife-edge bites, or other irregularities.
  • The handwheel drives to the right and is pressed down when the south side folds.
  • The handwheel drove to the left and pulled up when the north side pleats.
  • While the speed is stable and regular, the primary operator monitors the edge trimming of the paper surface and the end face of the roll.
  • You can turn on or off the oil pump of the press roll in response to changes in the paper surface to ensure the roll’s quality.
  • If the paper web breaks unexpectedly, the primary operator presses the stop button and rotates the deceleration handle to the “0” position. It causes the face tissue machine to stop.
  • The process standard specifies that the leading operator strictly controls the roll diameter and length.
  • When you’ve achieved the standard length, turn the deceleration handle to “0” and raise the tension setting by turning the tension knob to the right with your left hand.
  • At this point, you can smoothly decelerate the speed of the machine and can stop the operation by pressing the stop button.

All You Need to Know about the Facial Tissue Making Production Line

The production line of the facial tissue making machine includes the following items.

  • Tissue Jumbo Roll
  • Tissue Paper Folding Machine
  • Log Saw Cutting Machine
  • Individual Packing Machine
  • Bag Packing Machine
  • Bagged Facial Tissue
Tissue Jumbo Roll

It consists of a set of jumbo tissue rolls, which you may insert into the tissue paper folding machine to carry out the process.

Tissue Paper Folding Machine

The purpose of the face tissue folding machine is to emboss, fold, count, and cut paper into facial tissue with clear, clean, and lovely embossed designs.

This machine can handle all of the processing at once.

Jota facial tissue folding machine offers a high level of automation, excellent quality, quick speed, and efficiency.

It’s an excellent piece of specialized equipment for domestic post-processing paper.

In most cases, the facial tissue paper folding machine has seven rows, nine rows, or 11 rows. It means you can make seven packs, nine packs, or 11 packs of tissues all at once.

The typical output of a 5-row folding machine is about 1.5 tonnes, and the 8-hour productivity of a 7-row folding machine is around 1.5 tonnes to 2 tonnes.

As technology advances and market demand rises, some customers desire to raise their folding productivity output, necessitating the purchase of a giant machine capable of producing facial tissue paper with 11 rows, 12 rows, or more than 13 rows.

Log Saw Cutting Machine

The double-channel tissue log saw-cutter machine is a machine that cuts facial tissues of various lengths, heights, and widths automatically and continuously.

The entire machine is designed and manufactured using revolutionary electronic and servo-driving technology.

It has an advanced touchscreen HMI system.

The paper feeding system uses a servo motor to position the chain push plate. The two channels are controlled separately, with the facial tissue transported intermittently to control the cutting length.

The log saw blades have an automatic lubrication and sharpening mechanism that may sharpen the edge based on the cutting time.

At the same time, the touch screen allows you to change the sharpening and lubricating times.

The cutter frame’s height is automatically corrected to achieve the desired size.

Individual Packing Machine

The semi-finished face tissues are turned into finished facial tissues after log saw cutting, and the packing process is set to commence.

The finished facial tissues are usually the first to exit the log saw cutter and enter the individual packing conveyor belt.

Here the tissues are packed individually in smaller packets.

Bag Packing Machine

In this machine, the individually packed tissues are combined and filled in a bag.

Bagged Facial Tissue

Bagged facial tissues are the final product. You can sell or use these tissues according to your desire.

Raw Material Needed to Make Facial Tissue Papers

There are a lot of raw materials that Jota uses to make facial tissue papers. For example, Jota uses several materials such as wheat straw pulp, bamboo pulp, bagasse pulp, and other types of straw pulp to make “virgin pulp.”

This sort of material has a low fiber content of roughly 50%.

Straw pulp has been used to make almost all of the famous “primary color paper” in recent years. It offers a healthier sensation because Jota does not bleach it.

Straw pulp paper, however, feels stiff and lacks elasticity. Many chemicals are to the papermaking process to soften and bleach it to increase performance.

Note: Long-term use might potentially irritate the skin. Please be cautious.

Due to the issue of irritation, among all the raw ingredients, “virgin wood pulp” paper is the healthiest and most comfortable.

It is because the testing criteria for roll paper and facial tissue paper are different.

The items that meet the roll paper standard may not meet the standard for facial tissue paper.

The fiber level of “virgin wood pulp” is often about 80% or higher.

As a result, virgin wood pulp face tissue paper is homogeneous and delicate, with fewer functional medicinal chemicals added to the wood pulp, making it healthier.

Hardwood pulp and softwood pulp are the two primary forms of virgin wood pulp.

Hardwood pulp fibers are shorter and softer, giving facial tissue paper a better hand feel but a lesser strength.

Softwood pulp has longer filaments, which can help face tissue paper be more flexible. To make the paper stretchy and comfy, high-quality roll paper is usually blended with two wood pulps.

How to Make Facial Tissues – Step by Step

The facial tissues are made in the following ways.

  • Bales of wood pulp are fed into a hydra pulper machine, which looks like a substantial electric mixer, at tissue making facilities.
  • The pulp and water are combined to create a stock, a slurry of individual fibers suspended in water.
  • More water is added to the stock as it passes to the machine, resulting in a thinner combination that is over 99 percent water.
  • The cellulose fibers are then separated in refiners before being produced into a sheet on the creped wadding machine’s forming section.
  • The sheet is 95 percent fiber and only 5% water when it comes out of the machine a few seconds later.
  • The sheet is transported from the forming portion to the drying part through a felt belt.
  • The sheet is pressed onto the steam-heated drying cylinder in the drying area and then scraped off the cylinder once it has dried. After that, the sheet is twisted into big rolls.
  • The vast rolls are transported to a rewinder, where two wadding sheets are piled together before being further processed by calendar rollers for added softness and smoothness.
  • After being cut and rewound, the finished rolls are tested and transferred to storage, ready to be converted into facial tissue.
  • Several rolls of tissue are placed on the multi-folder at the converting department. They are interfolded, cut, and put in tissue boxes fitted into shipping containers in one continuous process.
  • As each tissue is removed, the interfolding allows a fresh tissue to emerge out of the box.

Environmentally Friendly Facial Tissue Papers

The face tissue producing machine also renews or recycles the tissue pulp.

Before bleaching, the ink is removed from the tissue pulp. However, you cannot recycle the pulp to make softer facial tissue papers.

You can only convert the pulp into qualifying toilet tissue paper after multiple rigorous treatments.

It is because it’s difficult to control the quality of recycled materials. Making truly high-quality facial tissue paper is also challenging.

Factors Influencing the Facial Tissue Paper Quality

The quality of wood pulp determines the quality of facial tissue paper.

The wood pulp is created from logs as raw materials and blended with a small amount of straw or recycled pulp.

The thickness of the paper is determined by the pulp thickness on the screen wire and the calendaring roller pressure.

These are the factors that influence facial tissue quality.

The variable types of fiber in facial tissue papers affect the user experience.

You must understand the differences between various popular names seen on product packaging and instructions, so you don’t get confused while making a purchase.

Jota considers all the factors stated above and provides you with the best manufactured facial tissue making machines.

These colored tissues not only enhance the eating experience by adding a splash of color to a plain table, but they also indicate the owner’s thoughtfulness and excitement.

Colored tissues have become the center of the market in big hotels and restaurants in Europe, America, and Australia.

As the use of colored tissues grows in popularity, several businesses specializing in the production and design of colored tissues have popped up in Western countries.

Facial Tissue Paper – A Profitable Business

Tissue papers are commonly used in beauty salons, hotels, restaurants, canteens, clubs, and hospitals, among other places, indicating that the tissue paper market is significant.

As a result, beginning a tissue paper manufacturing firm is a fantastic business opportunity for anyone looking to start a small-scale business with a cheap initial cost.

With an investment of around Rs. 10lakhs, a typical tissue paper manufacturing company may create approximately Rs. 1crore in annual sales turnover and a profit of about Rs. 5-8lakhs after all expenses.

With a break-even point of 45 percent working capacity, a typical profit on sales is 5%.

What Is GSM in Tissue Paper?

All varieties of paper are available in a wide range of thicknesses, which are measured in grams per square meter (GSM).

GSM stands for grams per square meter, and the lower the number, the thinner the paper.

Tissue paper typically has a GSM of 10 to 35. Office printer paper has a GSM of 70 to 100, and greeting cards have 250 or more.

How Can I Increase the Softness of Facial Tissue Papers?

Minimizing the wrinkles on the paper is the best way to improve its smoothness.

The most crucial requirement of facial tissues and toilet paper is to be soft. The internal bonding of the fibers gives the paper its strength.

You can reduce the degree of adhesion between the fibers to adjust the paper’s softness.

An effective way of softening paper is spraying softener on the paper before it passes through the Yankee dryer or Machine Glaze (MG). Using softeners for spraying paper is more cost-effective.

It reduces the cost by almost 50 percent compared to adding softeners in the pulp.

An added advantage of this process is that it improves the coating performance of the Yankee dryer.

It reduces the wrinkles on the paper and gives them a uniform texture, and helps in easy winding on the web.

Some softeners have film-formation properties. As these softeners are sprayed on the paper when it is close to the Yankee dryer, the film-formation process affects the creping process, thus affecting the softness of the paper.

The modifier makes the Yankee dryer produce paper with more plasticity and lesser wrinkles.

Difference between Toilet Paper and Facial Tissue Paper

The only thing that toilet paper and facial tissue papers have in common is that they are both made of paper pulp and are meant to be thrown away after one use.

Face tissue feels better on the skin than toilet paper because it has a smoother surface. Also, sometimes lotions and perfumes are put into facial tissue to make blowing your nose more pleasant.

Most toilet paper doesn’t have these extras. It does have one important thing that facial tissue doesn’t have. Toilet paper dissolves quickly in water. It can take between one and four minutes.

Toilet paper is made to break down quickly so that it can move through pipes and septic systems and be dealt with by sewer treatment plants.

On the other hand, facial tissue often has a chemical binder in it that helps it keep its shape.

It has moist strength, which means that it won’t fall apart when wet.

You shouldn’t flush facial tissues down the toilet because they don’t break down as quickly as toilet paper and can clog the system.

Facial Tissue Papers V.S. Hand-kerchiefs

There are two basic ways to clean your face, tissue papers or handkerchiefs. Let’s have a look at the differences between the two.

Handkerchiefs are sufficiently sanitary if they are stowed immediately after use, and the user then washes their hands.

Tissues are sufficiently sanitary if they are discarded promptly after use, and the user washes his or her hands.

Handkerchiefs that have been washed and dried can be reused several times. Laundry and ironing necessitate the use of electricity, water, detergent, and sanitizer.

Tissues are made from renewable resources with the help of energy, water, and chemicals. You can compost compostable tissues or discard them in the trash.

You can purchase handkerchiefs in a variety of fabrics and sizes to suit your preferences. Furthermore, you can wash them to add softness (e.g., with fabric softener).

Tissue packets, as well as a variety of tissue box forms and sizes, are available. To assist in soothe sensitive skin, tissues pre-moistened with aloe and other treatments are also available in the market.

Difference between Paper Towel and Facial Tissue Papers

Paper towels in the kitchen absorb liquids better than toilet paper, napkins, or facial wipes. Wrinkling and embossing are two methods used in the production of kitchen towels.

The wrinkling process gives the kitchen towels more open places for water supply.

The embossing procedure changes the paper towel’s surface from flat to uneven, leaving more empty spaces between the layers for water to penetrate.
