Why Jota Automatic Facial Tissue Making Machine

Saudi Arabian client Mr. Faisal purchased 3 production lines of household paper related products from Jota last month, one of these 3 production lines 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

The half-folded sheet is then transferred to the curved stainless steel guide plate by a sheet separating manipulator.

During the shifting process, the automatic counting device will automatically calculate the number of half-folded sheets;

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

There is waste generated during the facial tissue folding machine operation, waste is absorbed by the vacuum adsorption fan and then discharged.

A vacuum adsorption fan, it can prevent the waste from affecting the machine 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 length 400-2000mm, width 90-120mm, height 10-120mm (other sizes can be 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, which can ensure the cutting quality to the greatest extent, and improve the finished tissue paper’s flatness and beauty.

The log saw blades are equipped with an automatic lubrication and sharpening system, which can automatically sharpen the blade according to the different 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 is also introduced a photoelectric sensor for edge position control, which can effectively correct edge deviation.

Because Jota facial tissue log saw cutter introduces touch screen control, the facial tissue paper length can be preset on the touch screen.

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

In order to realize the function of our Jota facial tissue log saw cutting machine, of course, the servo drive unit and frequency inverter are essential.

The most important thing is that the machine is equipped with advanced PLC to receive and send various commands, to ensure continuous machine operation in an orderly manner.


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, and 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, and side iron, and finally complete the individual packing.


The specific process can refer to the following video.

The control panel of the Jota individual facial tissue packaging machine was developed by ourselves.

The operating speed is very stable, and there will be no abnormal vibration, noise, and temperature surge during the operation.

There is a 2m buffer conveyor belt that can store the facial tissue in the machine, the paper contact part is made of stainless steel (toilet paper feeding conveyor belt material is food grade PU).

The wrapping film feeding is controlled by the servo motor and the control board, pattern area is precisely positioned.

The feeding conveyor is equipped with a tapping device to make the packaging effect smooth.

The film cutting is controlled by a rotary spring cutting machine with a servo motor.

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, speed, temperature, and packaging size are adjustable;

Automatic bagging, automatic folding, automatic sealing, and the sealing cut adopts 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 have a plan to purchase a facial tissue machine, please feel free to send us an inquiry on this website, we will reply to you in detail as soon as possible.

Automatic Facial Tissue Making Machine Ultimate FAQ Guide

Facial Tissue Paper

How facial tissues are made?

Nowadays, many of the raw materials used to produce paper are recycled paper, which will be sterilized during the production process.

Let’s take a look at the magical process of facial tissue making together.

The 1st step is to recycle paper.


The recycled paper must be ground into powder through a grinder.


The 2nd step is to remove the ink.

Mix the powder with water and it will become pulp.

Then fill the air, the ink in the pulp will be absorbed by the bubbles, and then float, as long as this layer of the floating matter is filtered out, the rest is pure pulp.


The 3rd step is to roll the pulp and squeeze out the dirty water.

The ink-free pulp is continuously rolled by each roller, and as it is rolled and becomes thinner, the dirty water is also squeezed out.


The 4th step is to stir, disperse, and clean the pulp.


The screw press breaks up the pulp and then cleans it with sterile water and bleach to obtain white pulp, so such white pulp can be used for production.


The 5th step is shaping and drying.

The pulp is evenly spread on the conveyor belt, rolled again by rollers, squeezed out the moisture, and then dried by a heat machine.

The final paper is then wound into a large paper roll.


The 6th step is to remove wrinkles and cut.


Cut the paper after stretching.

During the stretching process, curls and wrinkles can be removed.

Cutting: A blade passes at a fixed time, cutting once every 22cm, this is the length of each facial tissue.


The 7th step is to fold.

Looking at the left and right rollers from directly above, insert a piece of paper on the left and a piece of paper on the right, and then stack the paper.


The 8th step is to draw the paper into stacks, cut, and pack.


Cut according to different specifications.

After the cutting is completed, it enters the conveyor belt, and the robotic arm places each stack of paper in a suitable position for subsequent packaging.


A pack of facial tissue has been produced like this!

What is the use of facial tissue paper?

You certainly don’t know the 6 uses of facial tissue paper.

1. Make steamed buns easier

If you do not have a steaming cloth for steaming buns at home, you can spread facial tissue paper on the bottom of the steamer.


Because the facial tissue paper has permeability, the steamed buns will not become sticky due to the dripping water, and will not affect the taste.

2. Make the fish lasting fresh

Kill the fish first, then fold the facial tissue paper into small pieces several times, and use the hard corners to scrape away the remaining tissue in the fish belly, which can reduce the fishy smell.

3. Let the silk of corn fall off

Wet the facial tissue paper with water and wrap it on the corn to remove the silk of corn.

4. Make hard candy soft

White sugar and brown sugar will agglomerate and become hard after a long time.


To make the sugar soft, pour the sugar cubes into a large bowl and cover them with a wet facial tissue paper.

After storing overnight, the sugar cubes will easily break and fall apart.

5. Keep vegetables fresh

Vegetables will wilt if they are stored in the refrigerator for a long time.

You can put facial tissue paper in a plastic bag first, and then put the vegetables in, so that the inside of the plastic bag can be kept at a proper humidity, and the vegetables can naturally be stored for a long time.

6. Keep the iron pot away from rust

After cleaning the iron pan, use a paper towel to dry the water at the bottom of the pan, and then put a facial tissue paper on the bottom of the pan.

Because the facial tissue paper has good water absorption, the iron pan is not easy to rust when stored.

Is the handkerchief the same as the facial tissue?

From the perspective of processing, the processing equipment for these types of paper products is different, the working principle of the processing equipment is different, and the product shape displayed after processing is also different.

Napkins are generally 1/4-folded tissues, facial tissues are V-folded tissues, and handkerchiefs are 1/12-folded tissues.

From the perspective of packaging, napkins are usually packed in nylon bags;

Facial tissues are usually packed in boxes or plastic bags around 200 pieces;

And handkerchiefs are packed in a pack of ten sheets.



What’s the difference between facial tissue and toilet paper?

Our household paper is mainly divided into two categories:


One is toilet paper; the other is tissue paper, including handkerchiefs, paper towels, napkins, and so on that we commonly use.

Many people think that tissue paper and toilet paper are the same, but they are actually quite different.

Even if they are all qualified products, the sanitary standards established by the country are quite different.

1. Different bacteria content

The tissue paper directly touches the face, and the hygiene requirements are very strict.

According to national regulations, the bacterial content per gram of tissue paper shall not be higher than 200 units;

The requirements for toilet paper are relatively loose, and the bacterial content per gram of toilet paper shall not be higher than 600 units.

In other words, the amount of bacteria in toilet paper is three times that of tissue paper.


2. Papermaking wood pulp is different

The virgin wood pulp and pure wood pulp we see are not the same concepts when we buy facial tissues.

Raw wood pulp means that the wood pulp for paper making is new raw material.

According to the national health standards, virgin wood pulp must be used for facial tissues.


Recycled materials are allowed in pure wood pulp, and the use of recycled materials to make toilet paper is in line with national health standards.

In this way, would you wipe your mouth with toilet paper again?

3. Different requirements for the fluorescent whitening agent

The tissue paper must be in contact with the human face.

According to the regulations, it must not contain a migratory fluorescent whitening agent.


Qualified tissue paper can be used with confidence and will not damage the skin.

The sanitary standard does not specify whether the toilet paper contains a migrating fluorescent whitening agent, and the content is not clear.

Friends who are used to using toilet paper to wipe their faces should pay attention to it.

Are paper towels and tissue paper the same?

Kitchen paper towels are more capable of absorbing liquids than toilet paper, napkins, or facial tissues.


There are two processes in the manufacture of kitchen towels: wrinkling and embossing.

The wrinkling process adds more open areas for water supply to the kitchen towels;

The embossing process makes the surface of the paper towel from flat to irregular, and there are more blank spaces between the paper layers for water to enter.

Colored facial tissues

Since the end of the 90s, if you are invited to a Westerner’s home for a dinner or party, you will find that many hosts will provide colorful and personalized tissue for guests to use when dining.


These beautiful tissues not only set off the dining atmosphere, add a unique color to the ordinary table, but also fully demonstrate the owner’s thoughtfulness and enthusiasm.

Nowadays, in major hotels and restaurants in Europe, America, and Australia, colored tissues are becoming the darling of the market;

In countries with more developed table and party cultures such as Germany and the United States, colored tissues already have a large number of loyal household users.

In these western countries, even ordinary families like to provide such unique tissues for visitors to use, and the patterns and styles of tissues provided each time will change with the occasion or festival.

As the use of colored tissues becomes more and more popular, a number of manufacturers specializing in the production and design of colored tissues have appeared in Western countries accordingly.

For most Chinese people, colored tissues can only be regarded as a novelty.

It is only in recent years that such beautiful and useful fashion products have slowly been placed on the tables of various high-end hotels, clubs, and western restaurants in China, and become a novelty that attracts people’s attention.


At present, the level of domestic color tissue manufacturing is uneven, and only a few can meet international standards.

Due to the particularity of facial tissue, foreign demand is far greater than domestic, so these companies export more.

Based on foreign rigid requirements for product safety, the products of these companies need to pass European and American product security standards.

Facial tissue brands

In the Chinese market, popular tissue brands include:

  • C&S
  • Linda
  • Tempo
  • Nepia

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, the fruits, food, etc., and it can also be suitable for babies.

Paper towels are positioned to clean your face and hands. The 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 good facial tissue making machine is designed to have many processes, such as pulp making, filtering impurities, screening paper, drying, calendering, rewinding, slitting, or 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 using. 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 in 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 draw 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, let 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, 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, fold, count, and cut the paper into facial tissue with a clear, clean, and beautiful embossed pattern.

The entire processing is completed by this machine at one time.

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

It is an ideal 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 device (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 the 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 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 roller. 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.

This pair of independent embossing rollers will be installed between the unwinding stand and the folding machine frame. They are driven by independent motors. The upper material is harder and the lower one is softer, which could enlarge the working life of the embossing roller. The general life span is okay after 3-5 years if you can maintain it. The pressure of the embossing roller has a critical effect on its working 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 inter folding. 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 expanding 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 facial tissue processing experience, you will know that  Except that the facial tissue folding machine is controlled by PLC and HMI, which is more intelligent and smart, the other auxiliary equipment like log saw cutting machines and single packaging machines are semi-automatic. Therefore, a semi automatic facial tissue production manufacturing line requires at least 3-4 workers for a high labor cost.

Is it possible to connect all the machines into a fully automatic facial tissue V-folding machine? As a professional facial tissue folding machine manufacturer in China, Jota machinery has a professional R&D engineering team and we can help you solve the pain point.

Our fully automatic facial tissue folding manufacturing production line is composed of a fully automatic facial tissue folding machine-transmission belt,-fully automatic log saw cutting machine-fully automatic kitchen tissue single packaging machine-transmission belt-fully automatic facial tissue towel bagging machine.

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 is 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 a constant tension can keep a high speed running and output.

If you are already engaged in 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.

Although it seems that the cost of a fully automatic facial tissue towel production line is relatively high, the subsequent sunk costs will be much less. In terms of efficiency and labor, it also creates greater value and profit for the enterprise.

Doing the business of facial tissue paper and hand towels is a process of small profits but quick turnover. With a stable sales network, the production volume of the machine is directly proportional to the profit.

This machine not only produces a facial tissue folding production line, but also can be used to produce kitchen towels, facial tissues, and some high-end kitchen and household papers.

Although facial tissue is used as raw material, it is also suitable for non-woven fabric, kitchen tissue towels, hand towels, etc.

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.

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

(1) The combination switch is not closed;

(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.

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 lines 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.

No matter what business, there are people who do well and who do not.

People who do well will find various ways to solve problems

If you are also this type of boss, the facial tissue business is definitely profitable for you.

After all, facial tissue is something that is closely related to life, and it is a consumable that people use every day.
