TAPPI’s Papermaking Technology and Operations Committee (PTOC) presents the latest free webinar next week on January 22 at 12:00 p.m. EST, Assessing and Improving Paper Machine Clothing.

This course is designated toward papermakers, though everyone is invited to attend. The webinar will go into depth over two topics in the paper machine clothing (PMC) industry:

  • Quick fixes for common PMC-related issues in order to have the machine set up and running efficiently
  • Understanding what data to monitor and how to support suppliers to provide better fabrics for more structural improvement of the machine

Throughout this discussion, attendees will receive hands-on tips and tricks regarding how to increase a machine’s productivity by means of improved performing felts and fabrics.

Hosting this presentation is Marcel Lensvelt, founder and CEO of Feltest Equipment BV, a company that focuses on improving the performance of paper machine clothing to the benefit of papermakers. Among his primary responsibilities are overseeing long-term strategies and product development. A native from the Netherlands, Marcel has degrees in both mechanical engineering and business administration. From beginnings as a sales and service agent to his current position, he brings over twenty years of industry knowledge and experience. Since 2008, Marcel has been continuously striving toward developing new products and processes aimed to further innovation in the PMC industry.

Attendance is free, but registration is required. Reserve your space today.
