- New loom includes state-of-the-art weaving technology
- Press fabrics created on the Infinity loom allow higher running speeds and produce more product for customers in North America and globally
APPLETON, Wis. (November 20, 2019) – Voith has enhanced its commitment to the North American paper industry with the installation of one of the largest looms of its kind in North America. The multi-million dollar investment will allow the manufacturer to provide perfectly-fit dewatering fabrics for its customers across North America and worldwide markets.
“We officially placed into operation one of the largest looms of its kind in the North American paper industry with a total weaving width just over 17 meters. said Jeff Berg, Vice President Operations, Voith Paper Fabric & Roll Systems North America, at the inauguration event held at Voith Paper Fabric & Rolls Systems’ facility in Appleton, Wisconsin, on November 13. “Because of the laminated structure of the woven fabric that maintains void volume throughout operation, press fabrics created on the Infinity loom allow higher running speeds and ultimately result in the generation of more product for our customers.”
The Infinity family of Voith’s press fabrics produced on the Infinity loom include the ToughLine and FineLine series, both of which offer highly uniform, top-quality base fabrics. To learn more about the Voith Infinity Family of press fabrics, please visit voith.com/corp-en/papermaking/infinity.
