The TT ShortFormer can be seen as a mini fourdrinier section. Toscotec dedicated the developing of this equipment to fulfill the needs of those customer that would improve the production of a mould cylinder section.

TT ShortFormer target operating speed is 400 m/min and the goal could be achieved with a reduced investment compared to conventional fourdrinier sections. TT ShortFormer operates under the felt (like mould cylinders section) but the sheet formation process take place on a wire (like a fourdrinier section).

The global layout is composed by an hydraulic headbox , a multi sector forming board with increasing levels of vacuum and a mould cylinder.

The TT ShortFormer allows an optimal control of CD/MD ratio and an improved dilution control for the uniformity of the CMD profile can be supplied as an option.

Thanks to a compact design, a small impact installation and a basic operation, TT ShortFormer is the ideal unit for revamping of existing paper machines.
