Heimbach is pleased to announce that an exclusive distribution agreement has been signed with Yamauchi for the supply of YAMABELT shoe press belts into the European paper industry.

Modern paper and cardboard production facilities are increasingly furnished with shoe press technology.The required belts (press covers for shoe presses) will be integrated into the Heimbach paper machine clothing product portfolio and complement our Webmover transfer belts. This will allow Heimbach to offer its customers a complete range of clothing for all positions of the paper machine. As a technology leader in the production and application of felts for shoe presses, Heimbach sees many promising opportunities to optimise the combined use of felts and belts.

Yamauchi is a pioneer in shoe press belt technology and a major supplier to the local market.  Following considerable investment in modernisation and capacity expansion at its Kanuma, Japan production site,  Yamauchi is now able to utilise the Heimbach distribution network in Europe to bring the advantages of  YAMABELTS to market.
