Fully automated, computer controlled handsheet making system producing 60 dried hand sheets per hour. Ideal for producing hand sheets for evaluation in paper pulp manufacturing industries.

The Formax III machine rapidly and automatically forms hand sheets to computer controlled recipes and parameters. Stock, additives, and white water are consistently proportioned for uniform sheet properties. After forming, the sheet passes over a suction box and through a press section for de-watering and consolidation. The sheet is then dried and deposited on a collection tray.

The Formax III is an excellent choice for the paper, fibre, or chemical research lab performing designed experiments and process development. High volume hand sheet production rate of up to 55 sheets per hour can be produced completely automatic. Alternatively, the machine can be operated in a manual or jog mode.
