TAPPI To Offer Essential Training On Corrugator Best Practices TAPPI has opened registration for the TAPPI Best Practic- es on the Corrugator Course taking place Saturday and Sunday, August 7 and 8, prior to SuperCorrExpo 2021 in Orlando, Florida. This two-day training is expressly de- signed to strengthen attendees’ understanding of each el- ement in the complex corrugating process, which can lead to higher productivity and profitability, better quality and reduced waste and downtime. TAPPI’s Best Practices on the Corrugator Course is of- fered for anyone working on corrugators as well as cor- rugator operators, box plant supervisors, production man- agers, engineers, technical service managers, consultants and sales support. The panel of instructors collaborated to design a course curriculum that focuses on: • The basics of how each component in the corrugator system works • How to run each component with optimum settings for peak performance • The critical properties of raw materials vital for produc- ing quality board • How to adopt the Centerline Process to achieve prod- uct consistency • Causes of excessive waste and how to measure and eliminate it

Instructors encourage attendees to bring product sam- ples with them, their individual challenges and questions. In many cases, attendees will learn additional information from listening to answers provided from others in the room. After this course, attendees should be able to: • Describe the elements of the corrugating process • Troubleshoot the most common operational problems • Recognize critical properties of paperboard, starch ad- hesive and how to control warp • Describe the centerline conditions for running the cor- rugator • Explain how to control stop time and keep it to a min- imum • Describe how to be compliant with quality and reach maximum speed of the corrugator • Explain the importance of training/cross training the crew and motivating the team to become a high per- formance team.
