In response, we develop our own technologies, and thoroughly control quality, to deliver products with advanced functions.
The press felt plays an important role in removing the water from the paper web after the forming section, and at the same time imparting smoothness and conveying it to the dryer section. For this reason, the press felt needs to provide the following functions: water removal, smoothness and runnability. In recent years, larger and faster papermachines require press felts of even higher consistency and quality. At Ichikawa, we seek uniformity on every aspect of the production process. Using digital controls, we are able to manage the entire process with great precision, and to implement a high level of quality control on all aspects.
