Full line of paper machine clothing
As a full line clothing supplier, Metso offers fabric solutions for the entire paper and board machine; services and products form a full service package. Our goal is to help our customers to produce paper and board in a sustainable way.
The constantly advancing technology in paper and board making presents a growing challenge for clothing. Now, as part of Metso, Tamfelt fabrics are developed hand in hand with paper, pulp drying, board and tissue machines. The challenges are tackled with focused R&D, professional workforce and innovative approach. A good proof of the results are the many start-ups of demanding, large and high-speed SC-, LWC-, newsprint, fine paper and board machines to which Tamfelt fabrics and start-up service have been chosen during the years.
Each forming, press and dryer position of the paper machine requires a product especially designed for its conditions. For more information about the function of our products on the paper/board machine, please see Forming section

Metso has further developed its nonwoven and hybrid felts to better meet today’s customer
demands for energy savings and better machine runnability. Nonwoven and hybrid
felts are well-known for their fast start-up and high nip dewatering. Their sophisticated
TMO versions also ensure excellent runnability.
In a challenging market situation, the Norske Skog Parenco mill in the Netherlands switched from newsprint to SC-B on its PM 1. Just fifteen months later, the mill was recognized as a reliable producer of SC-B paper. Doing all the work in-house further strengthened the machine crew’s already good team spirit.
The old saying ‘Well begun is half done’ fits perfectly with the support given by Metso’s fabric specialists during machine start-ups. With Tamfelt now part of Metso, the cooperation between the mill, the machine supplier and the fabric manufacturer is closer than ever – for the benefit of everyone.
