February 4, 2019 – GLV has launched the FlexJet line of headbox solutions, including new technology designed to optimize performance across a diverse mix of paper making machinery from linerboard to packaging, fluff pulp, fine and specialty paper.

The introduction of the FlexJet line provides multiple options with updated technology and tailored solutions built to serve the specific needs of mills with a wide range of applications. Models include the FlexJet F, FlexJet S, FlexJet R and the FlexJet C, specifically designed to apply microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) and other additives.

The nozzle design of the FlexJet offers CD ratio control, a metric used for optimizing sheet properties. The nozzle allows the headbox to produce a more square sheet and enhances cross-directional strength, which is particularly useful in the creation of linerboard.
