Paper Technics was formed in response to a pressing need in recent years for training courses within the sphere of papermaking. To meet this growing demand, a wide range of courses were designed, in order to provide an efficient way of meeting the demand at the introductory and intermediate level.

The overarching principle has been to make available trainers who are really knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their particular subjects and to make the range of courses wide enough to cover the most pertinent aspects of papermaking.

We are a UK based company, whose primary activity is to provide information about the subject of papermaking, for the benefit of paper companies and their associated suppliers. It's our belief that the provision of such high quality information is very beneficial

There's a great deal of information about the main activity, namely training services and it's worthwhile using the contact form, so that we can keep you informed about our activities on a regular basis, to give us feedback and to enable us to improve our services to you, by responding to your feedback.

Tissue Orientation Course: next course: Presenter: Paul Burden

Q4: De Vere Whites Hotel, Bolton

This course is an ideal introduction to the tissue making process. It is equally applicable to tissue production personnel, who want to find out more about the process and the optimum way to control the characteristics of the final tissue and general technical and sales personnel, who want to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of this fascinating subject.

The course is given by a highly respected expert, Paul Burden, who apart from his career with top class producers of tissue, has an unrivalled depth of experience and passion for his subject. This enthusiasm is delivered in a clear way, which is easy to understand.

Course attendees will learn how to optimise the process for quality and production, how to control important practical variables, an appreciation of the complexities of Yankee coating chemistry and the coating system operation. In addition to this, they will also learn about fibre types and the influence this has on the final product as well as an excellent summary of creping and soft and bulky tissue technology.
