    Drum forming head

    CAMPEN Machinery has produced traditional drum forming heads since the 1980’ies. Within the last few years, several improvements have been made to the traditional drum former, which, amongst others, gives our customers following advantages:

    • Easy to clean and keep clean during operation
    • Low maintenance
    • No oil dripping from bearings
    • Fiber length up to 12 mm

    With the CAMPEN drum forming head technology, many different types of natural, cellulose-based and synthetic fibers can be airlaid / drylaid into a web.

    Drum forming for wipes

    Drum forming technology is especially suitable for forming very fine airlaid webs from short fibers up to 12 mm, for example for wipes and hygiene products or tissues.

    If you wish to be able to process short as well as long fibers up to 30mm in length into airlaid webs  – please see our beater forming technology, which is able to process traditional man-made fibers, natural fibers and cellulose fibers as well as recycling fibers etc.

    It is also possible to combine the two technologies within the same airlaid line. Please contact us to discuss your needs and the possibilities of the technology.

    Flexible airlaid web formation

    Web formation is accomplished through rotating forming drums and needle rollers. The CAMPEN former heads offer maximum fiber flexibility and are provided with high performance drums and needle rollers.

    The capacity of the airlaid forming head is depending on the following:

    • Mix and type of fibers
    • Drum diameter
    • Working width
    • Suction capacity

    Prevent oil drops in drum forming heads

    As opposed to traditional drum forming heads, CAMPENs new drum forming heads have maintenance-free drum bearings, which entirely prevent oil drippings onto the airlaid product. This has previously been a common problem amongst traditional drum forming heads, but with CAMPENs improvement, contamination of products is eliminated, which is especially important in airlaid for wound care, medical and the food industry. Furthermore, the lubricant grease is food approved.

    The new drum bearings furthermore ensure less friction than traditional bearings and therefore energy use is significantly reduced.
