Given Brazil’s extensive forestry sector, the country is a key market for Texo AB, a leading manufacturer of weaving machines for the production of paper machine clothing (PMC). All paper manufacturing machines require a regular supply of PMC, which as large continuous engineered fabrics, carry the paper stock through each stage of the paper production process. With technologically sophisticated designs, they employ fibers and other polymeric materials in complex structures and each paper machine has an average of 10 separate fabrics installed on it. Although the PMC business represents just a small proportion of the total cost of manufacturing paper, it can have a significant impact on the quality of the paper, the efficiency of a machine and machine production rates.
