About the Webinar

Many papermakers have a love-hate relationship with their, sometimes elusive, Paper Machine Clothing. This webinar gives the papermaker hands-on tips and tricks to increase the machines bottom-line through better performing felts and fabrics.

This webinar covers 2 topics: first it gives quick fixes for some common PMC related problems, so that the machine is up and running again in no-time. For a more structural improvement, the second topic, you will learn which data to monitor – no extra headcount needed! – and how to support your suppliers to come with continuously better felts and fabrics for your machine.
