Improving Winder Safety

The batch process occurring at the winder represents one of highest potential areas of danger in the mill for operators and maintenance personnel. Speeds and technology continue to increase. Regulations are changing (e.g. EN ISO 13849 machinery standards). How safe is safe enough? Will a safety upgrade reduce overall throughput? Will automating some winder functions both improve safety and productivity? How much downtime will be required? These and more questions will be answered in this webinar. Included in the discussion will be guards, fencing, E-stops, electrical and fluid control improvements, mechanical holding devices, threading and splicing modifications and automation.

The Power of Real-Time Costing

In most operating environments, operators and shift supervisors are focused on their individual operating parameters: keeping the line running and monitoring deviations in selected indicators. In most cases, they have no understanding of the dollar value of the various operating decisions they make and the knock-on impact their decisions may have through the value chain; whether in terms of total added cost or variance in usages.

VPA and New Indices for Quantifying and Troubleshooting Sheet Quality

Sheet properties measured both on-line and off-line are often expressed in arrays of values called "profiles" in cross-machine direction (CD) and "trends" in machine direction (MD).  With the computing power, memory capacity, and display technology available in today's quality control and mill-wide systems, a new set of indices and two-dimensional analysis methods can be useful for better quantifying sheet quality and provide more insights for troubleshooting sheet-making processes.
