SPUG 2016 will include a mill-focused discussion of common shoe press issues with answers to operational and maintenance questions. SPUG concludes with a roundtable discussion involving operators and Valmet technologists from every function involved with shoe pressing technology: automation, hydraulics, service, machine clothing and more.

The conference runs from the evening of Oct. 17 through to Oct. 19, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Registration for this free event operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees are responsible for their own accommodation and travel expenses. Register to attend the 2016 Valmet SPUG at: www.valmet.com/spug
