Like the song says, you can’t always get what you want. At CorrExpo 2023, August 28-30 in Cleveland, Ohio — the Rock-n-Roll Capital of the World — you can learn tips and tricks to help you get what you need.

Produced by TAPPI, the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, the program will include the panel discussion, “Maximizing the Efficiency and Quality of Existing Capital Equipment,” on Wednesday, August 30.

Attendees will learn from industry experts about options for upgrading existing equipment for efficiency, quality and waste reduction.

Moderator Dave Burgess, Sales Director, JB Machinery, will lead panelists through this scenario: A converter learns he will not receive funds for a new machine and attempts to upgrade the existing equipment — knowing that it will not have all the capabilities of a modern-day machine, but still moving the quality and efficiency in a positive direction.

The panelists will discuss actionable options such as: 

Machine audits, possible mechanical and electrical upgrades 

Additional print stations (including top), vacuum dwell, doctor blade retrofits and micro-grinds 

Anilox roll audits, print objectives leading to engraving choices

Ink management systems

Ink recovery and wastewater management systems

Back-end enhancements/retrofits to improve speed and quality
