The paper industry is one of the most important industries in green India. The enhancement of the equipment such as Fourdrinier machines, pulpers, refiners etc. is really essential. The material make-up of the equipment decides the longevity, as the properties of the material determine the amount of stress, the machine can withstand. Suitable material usage can improve the machinery and its reliability as well.
