Forming fabrics, press felts and shoe press belts are developed hand in hand with tissue machines. Focused R&D, professional workforce and innovative approach are key in developing fabric structures that meet customer demands on performance, quality, energy savings and cost reductions.
One important step in the development phase are the test runs performed at Valmet’s pilot machine in Karlstad. Each forming and press position of the tissue machine requires a product especially designed for its conditions.
Valmet's tissue machine clothing is tailor-made and optimized according to your needs. Our application expertise together with repeatable high quality clothing ensure a reliable production process with lowest possible life cycle costs without compromising the end quality. The right fabrics, felts and belts also clearly contribute to energy savings.
