- How to safe cost in tissue manufactoring
For the tissue production there are two segments recycled fiber based tissue grades and virgin fiber containing premium grades. Common factor for both is that from the available raw materials producer needs to maximize the bulk and softness.
Most often in premium grades this means a rather large share of softwood content and producers are focusing on the quality of softwood component to minimize the percentage needed, due to its currently high market price.
Most often forgotten is that the quality of tissue recipe is a sum of all the components and the use of bulk softwood fiber grades with correctly matching hardwood components can also lead into competitive quality versus cost structure.
Our optimization tool SoftaCell™ has inbuild model to predict the softness potential of the furnish mix with simultaneous ability to track all other quality variables when the user can track the cost effect of every change in pulps and end quality.
