Embossing systems are necessary and expensive equipment options tissue manufacturers use to differentiate their products or enhance product attributes. The use of exclusive embossing patterns introduces signature designs. Embossing also can influence certain tissue characteristics such as bulk, softness, and appearance to enable rolled tissue products to compete for market share alongside higher-value options.
Downtime can be a detriment to tissue converters, but it’s also necessary to keep production lines running at peak efficiency. The difference between hindrance and help is whether the downtime is unplanned or planned.
It’s an age-old dilemma for tissue converters: use OEM spare parts or non-OEM spare parts? Cost often drives many to decide upon the latter and, just as often, they usually come to regret it.
As tissue converting equipment advances, a customer’s knowledge may not keep pace, which can lead to a disconnect when trying to solve problems or improve efficiencies. Fortunately, skilled technicians are available via augmented reality to help troubleshoot problems digitally. Learn more in this video.
Today’s tissue converters are serving customers who expect fast turnarounds and minimal downtime. Finding ways to be more cost-effective, efficient and focused on production is a top priority.
