Big Equipment For Leafcasting

Since 1981 Per Laursen has been collaborating with an engineer to develop a machine capable of casting sheets on an endless wire belt in a continuous process. The amount of pulp is automatically calculated using optical sensors that control feed pumps. Four machines have been built and delivered to workshops in Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, and the German Democratic Republic. The overall length of the machine is 4.15 meters; width of the belt is 0.6 meters; and the velocity of the belt is 0.5 to 3 meters/minute. For more information write Per Michael Laursen, Baunebjergvej 113, DX-3050 Humlebaek, Denmark.
