AstenJohnson, the people who “wrote the book” on paper machine clothing, have done it again.
The Second Edition of Paper Machine Clothing is being finalized for print and will be available in September. Interested papermakers, managers, engineers, professionals, and students can pre-order a copy in advance at a discounted price during PaperCon 2017 (April 23-26) in Minneapolis or by visiting AstenJohnson’s website.
Paper Machine Clothing, which builds on the excellent work in the first edition authored by a former AstenJohnson associate, Dr. Sabit Adanur in 1997, is a hardback 200+ page reference resource providing information about key papermaking topics as well as some of the latest technology available in paper machine clothing. Practical guides for troubleshooting and properly applying machine fabrics are included throughout the book.
In brief, the book gives an introduction to pulp and papermaking technology and then covers the main processes of Forming, Pressing, and Drying in detail. Design, manufacturing, testing, application, and service of paper machine fabrics for each machine section are explained in detail.
New features in the Second Edition include:
- Includes international units
- Chapter devoted to Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma
- Papermaking tips for forming, pressing, and drying
- Chapter on paper machine auditing
- Expanded troubleshooting section.
