The countdown has begun to FPInnovations’ much-anticipated Applied Tissue Course, which is taking place at their Montreal, Quebec facility on May 12 and 13, 2020.

Registration is now open to participants – including students – who are interested in learning more about tissue manufacturing.

“The new tissue course is a response to industry needs. A workforce approaching retirement age and the need for knowledge transfer are priority issues for the pulp and paper sector,” says Stéphan Lariviere, FPInnovations industry sector leader.

Through presentations, hands-on demonstrations, and workshop-style learning, the Applied Tissue Course provides a comprehensive understanding of tissue properties and tissue manufacturing. The course is offered in collaboration with FPInnovations’ tissue partners, including Cristini, Fabio-Perini, Kadant, Solenis and Toscotec.

“Kadant is very excited to join this course to share our knowledge in tissue making, specifically in creping,” says Denis Martin, Kadant’s regional sales director. “This is a great opportunity for learning as we can explain and teach tissue creping right on FPInnovations’ unique pilot tissue machine.”

Why you should attend the course

  • Gain hands-on manufacturing experience with field experts and suppliers on FPInnovations’ pilot tissue machine.
  • Learn how to test tissue properties in labs and improve tissue performance through optimization.
  • Gain in-depth knowledge in the tissue-making process, fibre physics, and tissue performance.
  • Understand the role of pulp furnish in tissue making and how it affects tissue properties.

The Applied Tissue Course also meets the continuous professional development requirement for several professional designations, including engineers.

A certificate will be issued to participants who complete the two-day course. Information on pricing and hotel accommodations is available on the FPInnovations events page.
