Decades ago, Xerium introduced the industry to synthetic forming fabric technology at a time when bronze wires were the standard. Shortly after, we then pioneered "X-Weave" extra shute product technology. Xerium also invented and introduced "SSB" class triple layer technology known as Huytexx delivering unprecedented machine performance and sheet quality.
Xerium's ancestors manufactured metal wires and woolen press felts two centuries ago, and quickly established an excellent reputation in the paper industry. As a result of more demanding paper machines coming online in recent years Xerium has set entirely new standards as the market-leading innovator in endless and seam felt technology.
Xerium offers a wide variety of dryer fabrics for every position on the machine covering all paper grades. Our woven styles are provided with pin seams or pin-spiral seams to fit the position requirements. In addition, we offer an excellent portfolio of spiral dryer fabrics for those applications with special requirements.
Xerium's Stowe Woodward roll cover product portfolio includes premium performance rubber, polyurethane, and composite technology engineered specifically for each application. Our innovative products are the standard by which roll technology is measured!
Xerium's Stowe and Mount Hope bowed spreader rolls products provide high-performance web and fabric smoothing for the most demanding applications. In addition, our portfolio includes all metal rolls as well as specially engineered sleeves for high temperature and high speed applications.
Xerium's roll product portfolio includes Stowe roll covers, Stowe and Mount Hope bowed spreader rolls, and SMART® Technology. Our roll cover products are engineered for each papermaking machine. Our patented SMART® Technology uses embedded sensors in roll covers to dynamically measure nip conditions across numerous sections of the machine.
