Fifteen Eastman Chemical Co. employees learned the science behind their work in performance films and how to better detect and resolve problems in production at last week’s “Web Dynamics” seminar in Martinsville.
The four-day session, “Web Dynamics,” is the newest program offered by the Center for Advanced Film Manufacturing (CAFM). It was the first professional “expert seminar” using the new academic coater at the New College Institute (NCI).
The workshop covered key concepts to optimize performance film equipment and process designs as well as practical steps to eliminate waste from breaks, deformation, scratches, alignment errors, wrinkles and roll defects, according to information from Ralph Schultz, a senior process engineer with Eastman Chemical. Its goal was to lead to practical solutions to common problems, he added.
