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.
It’s an age-old dilemma for tissue converters: OEM spare parts or non-OEM spare parts? Cost often drives manufacturers to decide upon the latter and, just as often, they usually come to regret it.
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 if the downtime is unplanned or planned.
