TAPPI introduces new Optimizing Paper Machine Performance Course, sponsored by Metso Paper.
Using TAPPI Technical Information Papers (TIPS) and other industry methods, participants in this course will be able to benchmark their operations and conduct performance audits. This approach applies recognized standards along with a process for identifying high-impact performance improvement activities. The process can be repeated and replicated for ongoing performance audits and adjustments.
The Optimizing Paper Machine Performance Course will examine best practices and apply analysis tools on topics such as the Paper Machine Optimization Process. Analyzing MD/CD Basic Weight Variation, Evaluating Headbox Performance, Wet End Additives, Analysis, Evaluating Dryer Section Performance, and Evaluating Size Press, Calendars and Coaters. The course is targeted for the intermediate to advanced audience, including process engineers, mid to upper level manufacturing managers, service/sales personnel, and design engineers who have a good working knowledge of the paper machine.
The course will be co-facilitated by Ken Hill, Chuck Klass, and Jim Atkins, who are recognized industry experts and experienced instructors. They jointly offer over 100 years of experience in paper machine operations improvement.
