The end of August saw the first Fiberline Customer Seminar hosted by ANDRITZ Brazil at the Majestic Hotel in Florianopolis. The seminar provided a platform for ANDRITZ and its customers to share and receive information on on various aspects of fiberline technology. Attended by over 70 customers from mills and production units across South America, the two days included lectures about operation and maintenance of equipment, process and design improvements, optimization, and energy savings, and provided an opportunity to bring customers up-to-date on fundamental best practices for all professionals to be successful in their fields. The seminar proved extremely useful to both customers and ANDRITZ alike. Dalton Manzi Junior from Lwarcel Celulose found the technical seminars very worthwhile, saying, “They showed what ANDRITZ is developing, what the customer is expecting and, most importantly, allowed exchange of information and experiences among the participants. This combination created a perfect environment for the development of new concepts.” Along with the presentations, customers had the opportunity to attend round table and open forum discussions.
