Converting Line Tissue Waste Management Needs a Kaizen Event, Tissue360º Spring/Summer 2021
The tissue industry has done a good job optimizing its processes in both making and converting paper, allowing manufacturers to produce the most commodity-type product and make money. Year after year, mechanical and chemical innovations have allowed the industry to meet customer-demanded characteristics for absorbency, value, and appearance.
However, many of these characteristics have made the converting process more difficult and challenging. For example, softer usually means drier, which creates extra dust and a more fragile sheet. As the industry has been able to increase production capacity rate over the years, it has not been able to improve its historical converting efficiency rate between 40 and 70 percent. This results in an ever-increasing amount of tissue waste coming off the converting lines.
