Sustainable Results with Value Driven Solutions
In our rapidly growing, highly competitive market place for tissue services and products, manufacturers are facing the challenge of delivering innovative and high quality products with a lower price. The traditional approach of reducing cost by demanding price reduction from suppliers is near its limits. Major investments for structural optimization in energy consumption, improvement in quality and production enhancement require several layers of approvals and deeper analysis because of volatility in political and economy environment. Some of the world class producers and new players have made the smart decision of optimizing productive time by implementing simple changes in the manufacturing process that do not require high investment, have short payback and generate great value. It is the purpose of this paper to share some of most recent and innovative technologies that combined, allow tissue makers to reduce lost time and increase machine efficiency focusing to the Creping process. By measuring and controlling most critical variables of creping, the root cause of time losses can be identified and eliminated. Based on tissue makers requests, BTG has designed packages of solutions that avoid operational tasks usually associated to lost time. BTG´s technologies has brought flexibility to areas where in the past any change required high investment in time and money.
