Tissue converting, packaging, and fold equipment produced under any of the Valmet brands has one of the best reputations in the industry for longevity and reliability. Many tissue manufacturers invest in Valmet lines because of the quality machinery and excellent ROI. They achieve operational excellence by leveraging advanced technologies that connect all aspects of tissue converting — from raw paper to finished products and distribution logistics.
As Industry 4.0 innovation rapidly surges forward, technology cannot remain static and deliver the consistent results tissue manufacturers want and need. However, keeping pace with technology could expedite the obsolescence of tissue equipment with long life cycles.
To address this challenge, Valmet developed a broad portfolio of Technical Improvement Programs (TIPs) that give tissue manufacturers access to the latest technologies without committing them to substantial equipment replacement costs.
TIPs are Valmet service solutions that provide aftermarket upgrades and improvements on all converting, packaging, and fold machines produced by Valmet. Enhancing installed equipment bases with TIPs that range from small and limited modifications to comprehensive rebuilds keeps machines up to date and efficient — and prevents obsolescence. With TIPs, tissue manufacturers maximize total cost of ownership (TCO), remain competitive in key markets, and improve overall operational efficiency.
Valmet TIPs are divided into six categories that align with key priorities for tissue manufacturers:
Ongoing supply chain disruptions continue to limit availability of everything from raw materials to finished product distribution. Competition for key commodities including production line equipment and components have tissue manufacturers often facing disproportionate pricing, exceptionally long delivery lead times — and resulting production delays.
Tissue manufacturers are seemingly at the mercy of a supply chain crisis that isn’t likely to end anytime soon. While true in some respects, those partnering with Valmet for equipment, technologies, and service have a viable alternative.
TIPs for Quick Delivery are solutions that focus on managing delivery of critical components and routine upgrades or maintenance, as identified by close internal analysis of performance data pertaining to existing TIPs. Making select TIPs available on a quick delivery basis directly addresses lead time and pricing pain points, as well as ensures timely service.
Currently, these TIPs for Quick Delivery are available:

Productivity, performance, and competitive advantage hinge on timely access to technologies that make tissue manufacturing efficient and cost-effective, especially during times of uncertainty. Valmet understands the sense of urgency for solutions, and has responded with TIPs. Contact the Valmet experts to learn more about standard and quick delivery TIPs options.
