    The ideal QualiFlex press sleeve for every paper grade

      For every paper grade, a choice can be made between our different products of the QualiFlex familiy. QualiFlex Crest is characterized by good properties and provides reliable performance – both in dewatering and  lifetime. QualiFlex Crown allows you to go even a step further, and to reach the next performance level. And our premium shoe press sleeve QualiFlex QRun reacts stable to compressions, which occur especially in board, packaging and pulp machines.

      QRun

      Optimized impact resistance for your board, packaging and pulp machine

        A leading provider of packaging solutions in the U.S. recently changed from Voith QualiFlex QRun shoe press sleeves to alternate sleeves provided by another company. As a result, the board and packaging machine was tested in a competitive trial, and the machine was running significantly slower on the competitor’s sleeves. The company asked Voith to assess the performance of those sleeves and recommend a solution that would improve machine speed and overall production.
