Our advanced processes and extensive manufacturing experience enable the production of the ultra-wide steel belts required by the paper and pulp industry, and we are able to deliver steel belts up to 10.0 m wide and 18.0 m long, endless welded.

The long nip press principle used in paper machines based on steel belt technology delivers increased capacity and quality in the manufacture of paper and board.

Key benefits of steel belts in paper/pulp processing include:

  • Premium quality board and coated/uncoated paper
  • High bulk and stiffness (lower material costs)
  • Smooth surface finish (enhanced feel/printability)
  • Increased drying capacity – greater productivity

Sandvik is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of steel belts used in the production of carton and fine paper in paper machines. We are proactive in terms of research and development, continually improving the tolerances we can offer – thickness deviation, flatness and straightness.

Steel belt grades used in pulp/paper production are Sandvik 1650SM and Sandvik 1500SAF.
