1 Glens Falls Interweb, Inc.

2 Business Plan  To provide equipment, engineering, and design services to the Pulp and Paper, and Nonwovens Industries with an emphasis on machines and auxiliary systems.  These services are provided cost effectively, and on a timely basis in order to satisfy the short-term and long-term goals of our customers.

3 History  Founded in 1996  Experienced core group of custom machinery/systems engineers and designers  Purchased Wet Laid Nonwovens business from Valmet in 1998

4 The GFI Team  Jeff Riggi – General Manager  Ray Stevens – Applications Manager  Roger Ahrens – Engineering Manager  John Harke – Nonwovens Product Manager

5 Services/Products  Design Services  Conceptual Development  Project Management  Engineered Equipment & Systems  Nonwoven & Specialty Machinery

6 Design Services  Machine design and layout  Installation drawings  Evaluation of existing machinery and systems

7 Conceptual Development  Engineering studies  Machine rebuilds and retrofits  Machine expansion  Process improvement studies

8 Project Management  Bid Specification preparation  Evaluation of vendor specifications  Project scheduling  On site management & supervision  Coordination with vendors

9 Engineered Equipment and Systems  Machine components  Rebuilds  New machine sections  Turnkey installations

10 Nonwovens and Specialty Machinery  Sandy Hill Deltaformer™  Sandy Hill Rotoformer™  Rotoformer™ 2000  Saturator with Microflow Applicator™  Hydro-Entanglement Units

11 Deltaformer™

12 Rotoformer™

13 Rotoformer™2000

14 Saturator Unit

15 Hydro-Entanglement Unit

16 High Dilution Forming Major Markets Food Medical Filtration Industrial

17 High Dilution Forming  Forming consistencies of 0.01 to 0.2%  Higher stock dilution to keep longer fibers from entangling  Fiber lengths from 5 mm to 38 mm

18 High Dilution Forming Longer fibers require high dilution forming –Natural fibers Abaca, sisal, kenaf, cotton linters –Man made & synthetic fibers Polyesters, rayon, nylon, glass, polyolefins

19 High Dilution Forming  Two basic forming configurations –Inclined wire former (Deltaformer™) –Vacuum cylinder former (Rotoformer™)

20 Deltaformer™

21  Inclined wire former - 15° to 35°  High dilution forming up to 400 gpm/in.  Can form synthetic fibers up to 38 mm long  Machine widths up to 5 meters wide  Machine speeds up to 600 m/min  Over 40 units delivered

22 Deltaformer™  Primary grades: –Glass mat for roofing –Teabag –Cigarette papers –Auto filter –Vacuum dust bag

23 Rotoformer™

24  Vacuum cylinder forming unit  In use since 1953  Medium dilution forming up to 70 gpm/in.  Machine speeds up to 700 fpm  Machine widths up to 150 inches  Over 90 units delivered

25 Rotoformer™ 2000

26  Improvements –Reduced CD profile variation –Wider flow range –Wider range of fibers –Improved headbox adjustments –Improved repeatability of process settings –Better internal access to headbox

27 Rotoformer™  Primary grades produced: –Filter –Automotive specialties Air bag Catalytic converters –Ultra- filtration HEPA / ULPA –Battery separator –Electrical circuit board

28 High Dilution Forming  Benefits/Advantages –Formation of long fibers –Blending of wood fibers and synthetic fibers –Excellent formation at low basis weights –Excellent basis weight control at low basis weights
