Press section

Accuracy and reliability are critical

In the press section, the dewatering process that started in the forming section continues. Dewatering is achieved by passing the web through a number of press roll nips.

The precision with which the paper web runs through the press section will affect the quality of the finished paper product, so the accuracy and reliability of bearings are essential.
