The amount of material in stock at a given time. This may be expressed in dollars, tons, units, etc.


A papermaking device used to manufacture single or multi-ply grades of paper and paperboard. The stock flows from a head box to a bottom wire (similar to a fourdrinier) and is then joined by a top wire so that water removal from the stock is accomplished through the top wire as well as the bottom wire. In multi-ply operation the bottom wire and formed web continue under subsequent head boxes where additional plies are laid down. Each head box is followed by another top wire. For each additional ply thus laid down virtually all of the water removal is upward through the top wire. The machine is capable of extremely high operating speeds.
