ATLANTA, Ga. – The Improving Paper Machine Performance Course, one of TAPPI's most popular intermediate to advanced courses, is back by popular demand. To be held August 20-22, 2013, in Peachtree Corners (metro Atlanta), USA the three-day course is designed to teach attendees about measuring and improving performance and efficiency of paper machines. The course features four of the industry’s most experienced and respected instructors, TAPPI Fellows Jim Atkins, Dick Reese, Chuck Klass and Ken Hill.

“The course is ideal for engineers and manufacturing managers who need a better understanding of paper machine operations from the wet end through the dry end including coating, sizing and calendering,” notes Scott Springmier, Manager, Pulp and Paper Division, TAPPI. “The course not only covers the key technologies, it  covers performance evaluations of each paper machine area  against industry standard benchmarks to identify opportunities for improvement.”

Topics covered include: how to establish a paper machine performance audit; measuring efficiency; analysis of individual components/operations (head box, press section, forming section, wet end additives, dryer section, size press, and calendar). New to this year’s course is a session on energy reduction strategies.  

Process engineers and manufacturing managers will find this course beneficial, along with service technicians and sales engineers from  chemical and equipment suppliers. A degree in engineering or other technical field is suggested but not required. A good working knowledge of the paper machine is recommended.
