Providing innovative digital modelling solutions to help clients realize their goals

Our client needed to replace an existing 128-inch (325-centimetre) trim, single-layer headbox Fourdrinier tissue machine. We worked with the client from the conceptual phase (including detailed cost estimates) through to detailed design, construction, start-up and commissioning for installation of a new 5,000 feet per minute crescent former tissue machine.

We also provided dynamic process modeling, equipment sizing and selection, 3D modeling for virtual walkthroughs, construction planning and progress reporting. Engineering was also provided for balance of plant services to support the changes to the mill resulting from the new machine.

The new machine is a Metso Crescent Former with a 2-ply headbox, felt section, Yankee hood air system reel, and unwind stands. Meeting a 30-day turnaround, the project was completed on schedule and on budget while exceeding quality and production targets.
