PROFILE/Plus Installation at Cascades St Jerome, Canada
In 2006 Cascades Division Rolland plant in St-Jérôme, QC. Conducted a machine shutdown and a restructuring of the workforce at the fine papers complex purchased in 1992 from Papiers Rolland. Management introduced PROFILE/Plus to the test laboratory which had a major positive impact on the plant’s production activities.
The system acquired by Cascades contains six different modules and is used to test the quality from the plant’s three paper machines. The modules in the system are Basis weight (grammage), strength (TSI/TSA), Porosity, Thickness, Gloss, Color and Opacity.
Customer comments include: Paul Dubé - Quality Assurance Manager:“Speaking as quality assurance manager, the system we now have is the one we’ve always wanted to have!”. “I have access to a valuable data bank for a host of uses: profiles, run standards, individual data on each lot, each product — and all on the same screen. It’s a dream management tool.
Mario Fauteux - Certified Laboratory Tester:“We’ve had no paper rejects owing to the equipment installed by Technidyne."“It’s perfect for us,” "Technidyne’s after-salesvice was a major factor when the time came to make a choice. “The service and the quality/price ratio make PROFILE/Plus an affordable system.”
The installation at Cascades St. Jerome is an example of how the PROFILE/Plus can be utilized in a Mill Restructuring situation. The PROFILE/Plus affordability and flexibility make it the perfect choice for such situations.
