Abstract [en]

Paper is one of the elements used in our everyday life under its different forms; from the office use, newspapers, books, post-it, different packaging… it is ever present. The mass production of paper is made possible today by the industrial paper mill. One of a key component affecting the quality of the paper is the forming fabric used as a filter in the preliminary stages of paper manufacturing. The TCR Transcent is such machine used to produce the forming fabric and TEXO-AB assures two third of the world production of the machine. Given the ever increasing customer demand, machine variants and technological need, it is imperial for TEXO-AB to implement a time-efficient and responsive design system. This is made possible by shifting from traditional design to a logic based parametric design. The TCR loom model provided by the method followed in this report allows among other benefit a reduction of up to 28% in the time taken to design a new machine while still attending to the customization element providing a unique machine for every customer. The use of the model will afford designers more time to focus on other essential tasks, schemes and strive toward continuous improvement in terms of quality and technology.
