Meet the Kadant Solutions Tissue Team
Kadant Solutions Division organized a dedicated tissue team for the North American market in 2017. The tissue-focused team consists of four professionals with more than 100 years of combined tissue mill experience.
Kadant Solutions has a long history and large market share of equipment and consumables being used in tissue making. The tissue team appreciates the application and process knowledge that needs to go along with tissue equipment. One objective is to provide experts solely focused on this area to offer guidance for optimal Yankee performance. The Yankee Safe™ program, launched in 2016, includes products and services that improve the operation of the Yankee doctors while keeping the Yankee safe throughout its life cycle. Therefore, a second objective of the team is to utilize the Yankee Safe program to help customers run their processes more effectively. This takes a holistic approach to look at the entire process and make recommendations that will improve runnability, make better product, save money and keep the Yankee safe.
The tissue group is like a team of physicians from various specialties collaborating to create an individualized treatment plan for a patient. Each member of the tissue team has a different background with specialty knowledge. When they join together an action plan can be developed that is most appropriate for that mill. These plans can only come together when the entire process is considered and how it can affect the final product. Having this dedicated team allows these folks to put the time in at the mill. The team is knowledgeable about Kadant’s complete product portfolio including blades, doctors, fabric cleaning equipment, showers, filtration and rotary steam joints.
Visit the tissue team in Miami at Tissue World 2018 from March 20-23 at booth number F100.
