Tissue World Americas 2012 show preview

The USD 70 bn a year global tissue business stands at the beginning of a fascinating period of development and change.

Top companies are investing huge amounts of resources and expertise into technological research balancing the need for quality product, cost efficiency and energy stewardship.

The immediate years ahead will see how well the industry responds to the challenges of a rapidly changing economic climate and ever more sophisticated customer demands.

All that global industry talent comes together in Florida on 20 to 23 March 2012 at the Miami Beach Convention Center for the Tissue World Americas trade show.

It is the only conference and exhibition targeted at North and South American producers, converters, distributors, traders and suppliers of soft hygiene tissue paper. TW Americas will bring together tissue business leaders from around the world in the industry’s leading event, and will offer matchless opportunities: information and opinion on the latest developments; debate on key challenges and opportunities; and a chance to review all the latest technology.

In addition to the technical and management conferences and exhibitions, Miami couldn’t be better geared up for more informal networking before and after the events. For more information, visit http://www.tissueworld.com/americas/index.php.

Below, Tissue World previews the many new and long-established companies that will be exhibiting and offering their latest input at TW Americas.

Enzymatic Deinking Technologies (EDT) is advancing the cutting edge of fibre modification technology using a natural enzymatic fibrillation mechanism now available to tissue producers. Refinase® products enable mills to improve fibre strength in tissue, towel, napkin and facial grades which allows for significant fibre savings through reduced basis weight, fibre substitution and reduced use of other approaches to develop strength. In many cases, Refinase® is showing the ability to reduce or eliminate refining which can translate into substantial process efficiency improvements including materially reduced energy usage and bulkier, softer sheets. Refinase® products have allowed mills to increase production, increase quality and pursue multiple strategies to reduce energy through increased drying efficiency or reduced refining energy.

Enzymatic fibre modification improves hydrogen bonding of fibres through natural enzymatic fibre cleaning and fibrillation vs. the traditional fibrillation and associated fibre damage that can occur with mechanical refining.

Using less energy to refine and dry is a greener way to make a higher quality tissue; it’s a win-win that has benefits far beyond the walls of the tissue mill. In addition to the green benefits, the total economic benefits associated with Refinase® result in some of the most exciting profit improvement options found in the industry today.

JBT Corporation has developed an automatic guided vehicle (AGV) for tissue warehousing applications. The vehicle is designed to store and retrieve tissue rolls as large as 120” (305 cm) in diameter by 110” (280 cm) high and weighing up to 5,500 lbs (2,270 kg) for a fully automated, lights out warehousing environment. The vehicle accurately stacks and unstacks rolls two or more levels high using precise laser navigation. Laser navigation is also very flexible allowing the vehicle to quickly respond to changes in the warehouse layout. The vehicle uses non-contact obstacle detection sensors which bring the vehicle to a safe stop before contacting anything in its path such as pedestrians or other mobile vehicles. The clamp mechanism tips the roll so that it can be picked up or set down from the bilge or vertically. The precisely controlled movements of the vehicle and clamp have eliminated roll damage and greatly enhanced safety. When combined in a system, vehicles communicate via a wireless RF network to warehouse management system (WMS) software to accept new storage/retrieval tasks and report on completed tasks. This AGV allows customers to automate existing warehouse facilities without making major changes. For more information, please contact JBT Corporation, www.jbtc-agv.com, 215-822-4600.

Through the accumulation of knowledge and continuous improvement steps taken over decades, Metso has developed standardised tissue making lines, incorporating modular design, which are now benchmarks in the industry. This strategy allows quicker building, testing, delivery and installation of lines, as well as facilitation of machine upgrades at a later stage. Metso’s innovative approach now covers its three leading-edge tissue lines: Advantage™ DCT® Technology, Advantage™ NTT® Technology and Advantage™ ThruAir® TAD Technology.

These advanced tissue making technologies allow mills to vary the parameters of bulk, softness, absorbency and strength, in the same machine, to provide the desired quality of tissue. More importantly, high tissue quality can be maintained at lower fibre content.

Metso can make further contributions to production optimisation because it takes the complete mill design into account, from raw material intake to reeled product. It has made processing a closed loop where water derived from tissue sheet is returned to stock preparation; where all components are dimensioned to minimise the use of energy and water.

Metso exists to advance tissue making for the long-term success of its customers. To achieve this, it is committed to being best in the market when it comes to developing unique innovations and providing total solutions that meet or exceed expectations.

Cost reduction while reducing environmental impact. Every tissue operation has the opportunity to reduce fresh water consumption through microfiltration of process water that allows greater reuse in the process. Some of the benefits include reduced fresh water purchase or cost of processing, reduced energy to heat fresh water, recovery of costly fibre and fines, reduced effluent and effluent processing requirements and a greater retention of additives and chemicals.

Over 500 ALGAS Microfilters have been installed globally in a wide variety of process functions. Many have been employed to remove fibre and solids from saveall and DAF clear filtrates to provide super-clear water for use in machine showers, recover and save fibre from effluent streams, or remove solids from effluent streams to off-load primary treatment or reduce discharges to municipal systems. They also replace savealls or DAFs for more effective removal of solids and reduced operating cost and treat DIP sludge or thicken rejects from other process operations. Tecumseth Filtration performs mill studies using a small production unit to demonstrate capability and determine the most effective size and design for any application. Studies include complete data and economic analysis with a full report summarising activities, findings, conclusions and recommendations for your mill.

Rubber coverings are used for compliance and ability to form or comply with the surface of the mating roll. Converting roll coverings must exhibit resiliency, abrasion resistance, modulus, and low hysteresis properties to function well in the specific application. These properties will determine the suitability of the covering in the application and will greatly impact the degree of success in a given environment.

Its field representatives are skilled in listening to customer needs and matching rubber covers to embossing and converting application challenges that deliver success and added value. Customers from coast to coast in North America and around the globe count on Valley Roller for solutions to the most difficult rubber roll challenges.
