Flexible™ Forming Board
The Flexible™ Forming Board system allows the Automated and Remote MD Positioning of the forming board to optimize the geometry around the headbox and have the ideal jet landing on the forming board lead blade. The forming board position relative to the apron lip is critical to insure the best possible sheet characteristics. The GL&V Dewatering Technologies Group has designed the Flexible Forming Board so it can be positioned “on the run” according to each of your grades.
The system is actuated either manually through a handwheel or automatically using an air motor and our feedback positioning feature.
