Paper Making Forming Fabrics, Paper Machine Wire Cloth

Extra support double layer forming fabrics are designed to further improve the characteristics of double-layer design. It’s a standard double layer forming fabric with an additional weft yarn on the sheet side of the fabric. There is an improvement in sheet formation, smoothness, reduction of wire mark and better cleaning of the showers. Extra support double layer forming fabrics are commonly used in newsprint and fine papers production or in applications that use very short fibers
★Improvement in sheet formation, smoothness
★Reduction of wire mark
★Better cleaning of the showers


Paper making wire cloth or forming fabric

Wire cloth or forming fabric is a very important for a paper machine in a paper mill. In general formation of paper depends on wire cloth and refining of paper pulp.

During woven of wire cloth, filaments are composed of paper machine direction and paper machine cross direction. The filaments of paper machine direction or lengthwise are called warp. One the other hand the filaments of paper machine cross direction are called weft or Shute or filling. The construction of wire cloth depends on some weaving variables such as pattern, mesh, yarn, diameter, degree of crimping etc. Mesh is very important for a wire cloth (forming fabric). Water drainage and retain of fibers are depends on it.
