Jan. 30, 2017 – Kadant Solutions has launched its Conformatic AL creping holder, describing its as a next-generation holder that incorporates the “latest technology bringing improved blade holder performance to the tissue market.”

The holder is suitable for use in all Yankee doctor positions including cut-off, creping, and cleaning, says Kadant. According to the company, upgrades to the holder’s adjustability were achieved with a proprietary adjustment mechanism promising “precise control” of the holder profile across the entire Yankee face without the need for edge fingers. The “robust construction” is designed for today’s high-performance tissue machines and features a self-conforming liquid tube, a backup blade, and a quick removal feature that allows the holder to be removed for cleaning and maintenance. Optional smart features can be integrated to provide real-time process feedback such as vibration and load. The holder is available in new doctor systems or as a retrofit to existing Conformatic holders.
