Mill Managers’ Breakfast Roundtables

The Mill Managers Roundtables have become a key component of PaperWeek, an event several mill managers look forward to to exchange on a number of issues with their counterparts. It has grown into a dynamic forum and a unique opportunity to get news ideas, learn from different management cultures and benchmark best practices.

The Mill Managers Roundtables will be led by Eric Ashby, General Manager at Domtar Windsor.

They will take place on all three mornings of PaperWeek (Tues., Wed., Thurs.).

Come prepared!

Topics this year will be focused on updates from each participant on their respective operations, and key points of discussions and presentations will address:
  • Safety
  • Reliability
  • Continuous Improvement
Papermaking Roundtables

It is with great pleasure that we are bringing back the Papermaking Roundtables as part of PaperWeek 2018.

The roundtables will be hosted by Justin Charron of Irving Paper and Chairman of the Papermaking Technology Committee (PMTC) of PAPTAC. They will take place on Wed. Feb 7, from 8:30-10 am and 10:30 to noon.

This is a time where there is a renewed need for troubleshooting, discussing the latest and upcoming repurposing projects, and to have a forum to share issues and network among papermakers.

Kick-off presentations by Jacques Perrault, Cascades CS+: Web breaks – causes & cures, Frédéric Parent, FPInnovations: Best practices in winding/reeling – avoiding rejects and end-users’ performance issues , and Lawrence Yane, Enerquin Air: Paper Machine Dryer Section Troubleshooting

Followed by a troubleshooting roundtable discussion, including:
  • Paper machine safety
  • Operator training
  • Mill process improvement case studies
  • Shutdown planning
  • Sheet break reduction
We hope to see many of you present!
