Voith has launched a forming fabric that is said creates optimal performance in tissue production.
The TissueForm ITY forming fabric is designed for challenging applications in tissue production and “ensures excellent stability and the highest dewatering at all machine speeds”, according to the company.
It combines a very fine two-shed paper side to obtain a smooth surface with a four-shed wear side.
The woven structure of the fabric ensures fast drainage and a high level of sheet support while maximising dimensional stability.
Its design is based on the patented woven structure of the I-Series and its proven 3:2 warp ratio.
Voith added that the new forming fabric TissueForm ITY has already been successfully deployed in the industry many times and has demonstrated that it delivers excellent dewatering performance and fibre support also at very high speeds.
