History of paper machine
In 1798, Frenchman N.L. Robel first proposed the idea of a paper machine and obtained the government's
Patent rights, but he did not make a machine. After the British S.&H. Fordrinier brothers purchased this patent right, they were handed over to B. Don King to improve the design and trial production. In 1803, they successfully produced the first fourdrinier paper machine capable of making paper. Called Fordliner paper machine. The cylinder former was invented in 1809 by the British J. Dickinson. In 1820, T.B. Crampton first used fire to heat the iron-plate cylinder drying paper. It was not until 1872 that Jackson invented the steam-heated drying cylinder that uses a siphon to remove condensed water. In 1828, Han Ding invented the pressure roller. In 1863, the Holyoke Paper Mill invented the five-roll super calender. It took nearly a hundred years to gradually improve the models of rotary screen and Fourdrinier paper machines. All modern paper machines basically fall into the category of these two models.
