Improving Line Safety and Efficiencies With Advanced Equipment Automation

01/15/2019 | Scott Hansen

Like any industry predicated on production, tissue manufacturing and converting presents a certain amount of peril to workers. The amount of equipment and humans on a production floor alone can make for hazardous situations, not to mention the often heavy, sharp, and quickly moving parts within that equipment that workers must be cognizant of at all times to prevent injury if safe practices and machine safety procedures are not being followed or used.

5 Strategies Tissue Converters Use to Contain and Reduce the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)

11/29/2018 | Scott Hansen

A measure of the difference between the ideal — the cost of doing everything perfectly the first time every time — and the actual costs associated with the reality of errors and inefficiencies in processes, the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) can erode as much as 15-20% in sales revenue and up to 40% of total operational budgets for many organizations. If resolving quality issues isn’t addressed until somewhere in the cycle when the product transitions from planning to manufacturing to distribution, COPQ could further endanger profitability.
