Nanopaper is a type of paper, which consists of small cellulose fibres in the length range of nanometers, in contrast to the longer fibres of normal paper. Nanopaper generally has a lower weight, higher abundance, better biodegradability and renewability as well as higher strength and rigidity. In this study, the construction of a new machine for a new method of nanopaper forming called pressure forming will be presented. The machine was built from scratch in order to increase nanopaper manufacturing efficiency for research purposes.
