  • Publication number: 20230063085
    Abstract: The invention relates to a clothing (10) for a machine to manufacture or refine a fibrous web, in particular a paper, cardboard, or tissue web, comprising a substrate (40) and a grid structure (20) applied on the substrate (40), on which the fibrous web is transported when the clothing (10) is used as intended, wherein the grid structure (20?) comprises a plurality of first elements (24?), all of which aligned in a first direction, and a plurality of second elements (26?), all of which aligned in a second direction, which is different from the first direction, wherein the first elements (24?) penetrate the second elements (26?), forming the grid structure (20?), such that an underside of the first elements (24?) facing the substrate (40) and an underside of the second elements (26?) facing the substrate (40) are located in a common plane. In addition, the present invention relates to a method for producing such a clothing.

  • Publication number: 20230054966
    Abstract: A structured tissue belt assembly including a supporting layer and a nonwoven web contacting layer. The supporting layer has a top surface and a bottom surface and is formed of monofilaments including one or more layers of warp yarns interwoven with weft yarns in a repeating pattern. At least one of: a) at least some of the warp yarns; or b) at least some of the weft yarns, include laser energy absorbent material, and at least one of: a) at least some of the warp yarns; or b) at least some of the weft yarns include laser energy scattering material. Laser welds attach the bottom surface of the web contacting layer to the top surface of the supporting layer at points where the web contacting layer contacts the at least one of: a) the at least some of the warp yarns; or b) the at least some of the weft yarns that include laser energy absorbent material.

  • Publication number: 20210071365
    Abstract: The present invention provides for manufacturing processes of structuring fabrics that contain a web contacting layer with seams that do not cause defects in the sheet that can result in sheet breaks during the paper machine process. Structuring fabrics with a web contacting layer that can have damaged sections replaced rather than replacing the entire structuring fabric, which is costly and time consuming, are also provided. Additionally, a process for manufacturing the web contacting layer by laying down polymers of specific material properties in an additive manner under computer control (3-D printing) is provided.
