Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The new TissueForm ITY forming fabric that Voith, Germany, has launched on the market is designed for challenging applications in tissue production. It ensures excellent stability and highest dewatering at all machine speeds, the company notes.

The new forming fabric combines a very fine 2-shed paper side to obtain a smooth surface with a 4-shed wear side. The woven structure of the fabric ensures fast drainage and a high level of sheet support while maximizing dimensional stability. The entire design of TissueForm ITY is based on the woven structure of the I-Series and its 3:2 warp ratio.
Voith points out that the new forming fabric has already been successfully deployed in the industry many times and has delivered excellent dewatering performance and fiber support, also at very high speeds. Fabric wear is minimal, so that outstanding service life records are achieved.
