Yamabelt – shoe press belt on the advance
In the early 60’s Yamauchi started the manufacturing of the polyurethane coated products for the paper industry.
In 1983 the first shoe press belt was developed. In 2010, Yamauchi and Heimbach started the partnership of the Yamabelt shoe press belts. Two worldwide known companies combined their know-how to be able to offer the customers tailor-made synergies.
The value of shoe press belt. High sheet dryness after the press section is a key factor achieving a high machine speed and efficiency. Additionally, many paper quality parameters can be influenced by the shoe press concept and the shoe press belt technology. Most of the shoe presses are equipped nowadays with press belt having continuous grooved or interrupted grooved designs. The combination and interaction of the advanced press felt technology (Atrojet) and shoe press belt technology (Yamabelt) can be the key success factor, when the runnability and the efficiency of the paper machine are tuned to maximum efficiency.
Main specifications. Inner diameter: 1100-2020 mm; Belt width: up to 13 m; Material: advanced PUR (hardness 90 to 95º; shore A); Belt designs: individual range in the variety of groove patterns (plain, grooved, interrupted grooved & high pitch).
New Yamabelt – AIKIDO shoe press belt. The new, advanced Yamabelt AIKIDO has been designed for all kind of paper and board machines including tissue machines. A major improvement of the new AIKIDO Yamabelt is superior mechanical resilience and void volume retentions which enable an effective dewatering and a higher life. The unique groove technology guaranteeing extra smooth surfaces. Smooth surfaces do support low flow resistance and efficient dewatering by the Yamabelt to provide high sheet dryness.
Yamabelt – A wide range of grooved designs. The Yamabelt product portfolio includes a wide range of different grooved designs to apply the best possible belt design for every individual shoe press position. It is Heimbach’s aim to select the optimal belt design for your shoe press demands from the wide variety of Yamabelt groove patterns.
A high-precision manufacturing and decades of experience contribute to achieve the highest quality.
