Charleston, SC

AstenJohnson and Paperchine are proud to sponsor our 13th annual Shoe Press Users Roundtable. Over the past twelve years more than 500 papermakers have taken advantage of this conference to learn more about shoe presses and other papermaking issues. The roundtable format allows papermakers with all levels of experience to come together and share their knowledge as well as network with others.

We will bring together experts in shoe press design and maintenance, shoe press belts, paper machine clothing and paper process optimization to bring you new developments and to introduce topics for you to discuss with your peers.

The registration fee is $1100 (US and Canadian) and covers all costs except travel to and from the conference.

To take advantage of this unique opportunity, please complete and return the registration form below to your AstenJohnson or Paperchine sales representative or to Sue McCann: sue.mccann@astenjohnson.com.

The deadline for registration is July 31.

The 2015 Shoe Press Users Roundtable will feature a variety of topics designed to provide learning experiences for those who have been working on machines with a shoe press for many years as well as those who are newcomers to machines or maybe planning to install a shoe press. The agenda is mixed with presentations followed by roundtable discussions. If you have specific questions or topics you would like to be discussed during the roundtables, please send it to daryl.wells@astenjohnson.com, or you can include it on your registration form.
