The modern tissue-making processes puts great emphasis on the operation speeds of the tissue machines. The crescent former is the solution. HANTONG MACHINERY provides its own crescent former concept with a hydraulic headbox. The headbox can be delivered in a standard single-ply version or in a two-ply design.

The Crescent former framing is a cantilevered structure, made of stainless steel and designed for easy and fast wire changing operation. The water drained around the forming roll is directed by a deflector into the main saveall embedded in the framing. The forming roll is a plain roll with rubber cover, driven by a sectional drive. Wire run accessories, such as wire stretchers, automatic tension control, wire guiding are part of the Crescent former section.
