Optimation’s web handling workshops provide students with a unique hands on experience, preparing them to solve web and conveyance problems that occur on their own lines. Our workshops have two dimensions: a classroom seminar explains the engineering principles behind each web process; a live lab demonstration proves the methods used to solve the common issues that arise in the field. Our workshops are designed for engineers and technicians at all levels. Each workshop addresses a unique web handling problem or principle. Note for New York State professional engineers, PDH credits are available.
Optimation’s web handling consultants have decades of mechanical and electrical experience in web handling and proven success in the development of roll-to-roll processes for paper, film and digital media products. When we’re in your facility we become investigators, looking at and understanding your process in order to determine the root cause of your problem or to find ways to improve and increase product yield and quality. We can also provide customized onsite training.
We go beyond consulting by creating and/or applying our tools and capabilities to analyze and solve challenging web handling problems. Our tools and capabilities include all our MCF assets including previous experience and problem solving capabilities such as design of experiments (DOE), statistical analyses (including use of JMP or Minitab) and general problem solving skills.
Optimation’s competitive advantage is the ability to implement the solutions and findings resulting from web handling consulting and development projects.
