Lightweight Machine Conference & Workshop Update  

(as of late March 2010)

Announcement--April 12, 2010--Updates

Two important matters this week in the way of updates:

1. Don't forget,  the pre-registration conference price of $75.00 ends on April 17th.

2. A discussion is being added on "C & I" Tissue.  It looks like a tissue machine will be on the market by June 2010 that will completely revolutionize the C & I Tissue manufacturing business within five years or so.  It is our opinion it may render current machines and converting plants obsolete quickly.  If you are in the C & I Tissue business, you will not want to miss this important presentation.


What you will learn at this conference:

  • Progress on using alternative materials for machine components, e.g., carbon fiber, aluminum and others
  • How integration of design and execution concepts for paper machine, auxiliaries and buidling can reduce redundant safety factors and engineering work
  • How to reduce copper usage by as much as 50%
  • Advantages of using lightweight dryer cans to reduce the overall number of dryers
  • Overcoming objections to plastic piping
  • See a brand new fastener system which may revolutionize the assembly of some component parts and reduce maintenance downtime
  • How a Light Green Machine (TM) may reduce or eliminate the need for a power island rebuild
What you will do:

You will participate in the initial activities in developing Light Green Machine (TM) design practices

What you will receive:

As a participant in the workshop and conference, you will receive an electronic copy of the Light Green Machine design practices, v 1.0., to completed after the conference.
