The "heart" of this year’s Tissue360° Forum at PaperCon, set for April 28-30 in downtown Nashville, Tenn., USA, contains two special tissue converting sessions. The first of the two sessions, which together focus on Tissue Converting Innovations, will be held in the first half of the afternoon on April 29.

The first session will include three in-depth technical papers. Manrico Giusfredi, Fabio Perinni, will explore "Evolutions in Tissue Converting," and Justen Smith of Futura will look at the M&R side of converting with a presentation on how an "Advanced Documentation System Revolutionizes Maintenance and Training." Rounding out the session, Massimo Capisani, Pulsar America, will examine "Conveying of Tissue Products: Intelligent Integration for the Converting Lines."

The second converting session in the latter half of the afternoon on April 29 will begin with a statistical overview of the converting side of the tissue products industry by Poyry. It will then turn to a very special panel of global tissue converting experts who will discuss, analyze, and respond to questions and input for session attendees about new innovations, trends, and strategies in tissue converting.

In addition to Converting Innovations, this year’s second annual Tissue360° Forum program will focus on technical advances in base sheet structure, fiber and wet end chemistry technologies, yankee dryer operations, and finished product testing. All material is non-commercial and is selected and peer-reviewed by industry leaders with extensive tissue expertise. The program is co-located with TAPPI’s PaperCon 2014 Conference and NETInc Nonwovens Conference—attendees may attend all three events for one charge. Specific Tissue topics include:

  • Converting Innovations
  • Fiber Usage and Supply
  • Wet End and Creping Chemistry
  • Insights into Sheet Structure
  • Tissue Testing Workshop – Standards and Methods
  • Yankee Operations and Mill Safety.

The full program is available online. There will also be a trade fair, spouse program, and numerous networking opportunities.
