This affordable interactive training program builds technical and practical knowledge of the papermaking process from Paper Structure to Dry End!

The Practical Papermaking CD-ROM Series is an interactive training course on the technical and practical aspects of papermaking. Available individually or as a set, these ten CD-ROMs cover all the basics of papermaking and paper machine operations. Anyone involved in papermaking that needs a working knowledge of the papermaking process, including operators, production and technical staff, engineers, and technical service personnel will benefit from this series.

Each CD has individual lessons covering a particular area of papermaking. Each takes about an hour to complete and is a stand-alone learning experience complete with a knowledge assessment section so you can measure your progress. A student tracking and bookmark program is available to let you move at your own pace.

Learn to:

* Describe how basic fiber structure affects paper properties

* Identify the main components and principles of operation of the paper machine system, from stock preparation through the final drying operation

* Use a better understanding of the overall paper machine system to improve paper quality and paper machine efficiency

Practical Papermaking gives you a better understanding of overall paper machine operations, a chief component in increasing paper machine efficiency. Improving paper machine efficiency is one of the best ways to improve overall profitability. World-class, single-grade paper machines run at better than 90% efficiency but, unfortunately, many paper machines have much lower efficiency. By improving paper machine efficiency even a little, you can add incremental tonnage and increase your bottom line. Practical Papermaking can help by improving the skills of the people who have hands-on responsibility for making the papermaking operation function properly.

Get More Mileage from Your CD-ROM!

Make the CD-ROM available throughout your workplace, you can do so with a TAPPI Site License. The license is available separately and allows you to install the CD on your company's internal intranet so all employees at any one location can access it. The site license is per CD, per location, but if you have multiple locations you can contact TAPPI PRESS for prices. See page 28 for more details.
