FPInnovations has released the schedule for its Interactive Tissue Course, which takes place online October 26 to 29, 2020.

The course is open to participants around the world who are seeking a deeper understanding of tissue properties, testing, tissue making, performance and converting.

Live online demonstrations as well as interactive Q&A sessions, activities and quizzes will complement the lectures. The sessions will run from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET.


The course is offered in collaboration with tissue partners Cristini, Fabio-Perini, Kadant, Solenis and Toscotec, who will bring their respective expertise to cover important topics such as tissue making process and equipment, tissue creping and chemistry and tissue converting operation.

By the course’s end, participants will have learned how to test tissue properties and improve tissue performance through optimization, gain in-depth knowledge of the tissue-making process, fibre physics and tissue performance, and understand the role of pulp furnish in tissue making and how it affects tissue properties.

Course material will be available in advance, and participants will also have access to the recordings of the course for future reference.

The Interactive Tissue Course meets the continuous professional development requirement for several professional designations, including engineers. A certificate will be issued to participants who complete the four-day course.
