"The engineering behind the development of FlexJet™ technology south to solve problems for our customer," explains Marc Foulger, Global Business Manager, Headboxes for GLV.  "The innovative nozzle design of each FlexJet™ model offers the widest possible range of MD:CD ratio control, a key metric for optimizing sheet properties for many grades.  The nozzle enables the headbox to produce a squarer sheet for grades such as linerboard, and therefore greater cross directional strength on the paper machine."
