This sack paper/linerboard machine was converted into a ropeless one in three steps, including challenging Clupak area. As a result, operator safety is improved and the tail threading time is down by 65%. Grade changes can be done a lot quicker, as re-routing of the ropes is no longer needed.
- Safe and efficient operation
- Average tail threading time dropped from 25 to 5 minutes
- No unplanned rope change shutdowns. Before installation 3-4 times/month, totally 8-10 hours/month
- Earlier change from liner to sack paper required re-routing of the ropes
- Operator safety
- ROI < 1 year
