Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

 
Voith, Heidenheim, Germany, has launched two new paper machine forming fabrics, designed for manufacturing demanding board and packaging papers and also graphic grades. As the names of the MultiForm IR and MultiForm IC suggest, these forming fabrics are part of Voith’s I-Series. All products in this series are based on a unique SSB concept. The special feature of the fabrics in the I-Series is their warp ratio of 3:2.

The new forming fabrics were specifically developed for positions that put high demands on dimensional stability and dewatering performance. The unique warp principle of both MultiForm forming fabrics combines a fine paper side with an extremely stable machine side. This allows an increase in paper quality and a longer service life for the fabric. Further benefits are the good runnability of the fabrics at high speeds and their positive impact on resource consumption.
 
Voith’s I-Series has already been used to produce around 14 million metric tons of paper worldwide. The I-Series forming fabrics are being used in a wide range of applications from fine paper through to demanding packaging papers and are suitable for all kinds of former types.
