The effects of incorrect tension in forming fabrics are often underestimated. Tension problems can cause:

  • uneven paper properties due to uneven dewatering over the width
  • unstable dimensions; for example fabrics that become too narrow
  • increased fabric wear due to slippage of the drive roll or continuous corrections of the guiding roll
  • poor dewatering and increased power consumption due to insufficient wire tension
  • bearing and roll failure due to unexpectedly high fabrics tension
  • pickup problems due to piping or waviness of the fabric
