Nov. 3, 2017 – Xerium Technologies has introduced Maximus, describing it as a new portfolio of press felt technology for today’s most demanding press positions.

Maximus technology is designed for machines producing containerboard, packaging and graphical paper grades. Maximus’ single-base structure design with lower fabric caliper delivers immediate start-up without the typical long break-in periods often required for conventional technology, explains the company, adding that the portfolio is engineered for faster start-up, wider operational window and extended life. As well, its drainage channels and warp-bound weave concept promise maximum dimensional stability and compaction resistance for “high-performance dewatering, longer running life and excellent end-product quality.”
