YOUNGSVILLE, N.C. — December 4, 2014 — Xerium Technologies, Inc., a global provider of industrial
consumable products and services, recently launched ProSeam CL felt technology. ProSeam CL is specifically engineered to provide increased seam durability and felt life on demanding cylinder board machines. In addition, due to its unique base fabric structure, ProSeam CL is also designed to reduce installation time by speeding the on-machine seaming process required for new felts. ProSeam CL technology also incorporates improved batt fibre technology in the surface along with specially processed batt anchoring which combine for more resilient and steady-state performance over the life of the felt.
“The Xerium R&D team is especially excited to unveil yet another step change in felt performance on these demanding cylinder board machines,” said Bill Butterfield, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Xerium. “ProSeam CL felt technology was developed with our customers’ needs in mind: increased life and a significant reduction in seaming time. Through field trials these results have been verified with longer run life and faster seeming. It’s always gratifying to help our global customers reach new levels of machine performance by applying our technology.”
