Kadant Solutions entered the blogosphere in October 2013. And the entire year was full of research, development, and learning. Escorting out 2013 and ushering in the new year wouldn’t feel right without some reflection.
During 2013 a three part series highlighting the importance of roll cleaning in the carbon fiber industry was posted. Each chapter focused on a specific topic including increasing line yield, improving safety, and the appropriate time for changing a roll cleaning blade. As Kadant Solutions gained new insights into synthetic fiber-based products and the importance of line yield and safety, we took a look at the history of synthetic fiber developments in roll cleaning and maintenance.
And in drum flaker applications, we examined how to prevent contaminants from getting into the finished product while minimizing maintenance downtime and efficacy of the flaking process. The case study about improving flaker productivity provided a new perspective on flaking operations and innovation in this application.
Looking into 2014, Kadant Solutions will be participating in many events, including the Tissue World and PaperCon trade shows. Other blog topics to watch for include new roll cleaning blade technologies and developments in water cleaning and conditioning systems.
Kadant Solutions wishes you a Happy New Year!
