Free TAPPI Webinar: Assessing and Improving Paper Machine Clothing

TAPPI’s Papermaking Technology and Operations Committee (PTOC) presents the latest free webinar next week on January 22 at 12:00p.m. EST, Assessing and Improving Paper Machine Clothing.

While this presentation is designed with papermakers in mind, everyone is welcome to attend. This webinar will explore several topics in the paper machine clothing (PMC) industry, including:

  • Quick fixes for common PMC-related issues in order to have the machine set up and running efficiently
  • Understanding what data to monitor and how to support suppliers to provide better fabrics for more structural improvement of the machine

Throughout this discussion, attendees will receive hands-on tips and tricks on how to increase a machine’s productivity via better-performing felts and fabrics.


A native from the Netherlands, Marcel Lensvelt will host this presentation. As founder and CEO of Feltest Equipment BV, which focuses on improving the performance of paper machine clothing to the benefit of papermakers, his major responsibilities involve overseeing long-term strategies and product development. In addition to his education with degrees in both mechanical engineering and business administration, Marcel brings over twenty years of industry experience, having begun as a sales and service agent to his current position. Since 2008, he has been striving toward instituting new products and processes aimed to propel innovation in the PMC industry.
