Troubleshoot Your Paper Machine Challenges and Improve Performance

Sharpen your understanding of the intricate operations of the paper machine at TAPPI’s Paper Machine Operations Course May 21-23, 2024.  This three-day introductory course will be held at Jacobs in Greenville, South Carolina, conveniently located near several paper mills.

This training is excellent for new employees, experienced operators seeking to advance their skills, engineers, technicians, and sales representatives.

“There are other papermaking courses offered among universities. What distinguishes TAPPI’s course is that it is presented by seasoned, veteran instructors.  Over 130 years of collective experience is shared among the instructors”, says Tom Rodencal, Course Chair. The instructors will provide fundamental training on the design and operation of the paper machine and support systems. “The opportunity to bring your own questions and issues and to have them solved is a strong asset for this course training”, said a participant from last year’s course.

You will learn:

  • How the mechanical components and operations of the paper machine affect the structure of paper and quality
  • The design and operating features of the paper machine that affect performance
  • Ways to improve paper machine efficiency and product quality based on a new understanding of the overall operation
