A single layer forming fabric is the least complex of the weave pattern categories and the 4, 5 shaft and 8 shaft configurations are still widely used in the paper making industry. And single layer forming fabrics are also applied in the manufacturing of multi-layer forming fabrics due to their good paper sheet forming properties.
