Two Plants. Two Cities. Two Days of Training.

In this course, you will observe best practices for operations of the corrugator and learn how to maintain the machine for optimal performance.

Attendees will see everything from the process for optimal splicing at the wet end to the methods of consistent stack quality at the dry end at Green Bay Packaging in De Pere, WI. Controls for temperature, adhesive, steam and air use will receive special focus. 

At the BW Papersystems Corrugator Headquarters in Phillips, WI, in their Four Seasons Learning and Manufacturing Facility, attendees can observe and explore the how and why of maintenance including machine alignment, vibration control, and tooling calibration. This training is a unique opportunity because the manufactured components are not yet in production.

During the seminar operation and maintenance experts will emphasize the prevention of problems and breakdowns by establishing a series of daily checks and observations to maintain an environment of continuous improvement. Each participant will return to his or her facility with a plan to improve daily operations and maintenance.
