AJU Packaging #2 – May 19 @ AstenJohnson
May 19 – May 21 all-day

AstenJohnson University (AJU) was established in 2005 as one way to invest in the development of future papermakers and to provide a forum for learning and sharing of common business practices. This AJU session will focus on issues associated with the printing and writing grade. By concentrating on a specific paper grade, we will be able to provide students with specific, applicable information that can be put into practice immediately upon returning to the mill. We will discuss actual papermaking experiences in class, so we encourage participants to bring examples of past problems or current challenges to explore in class.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This training session has been created to address the needs of individuals relatively new to papermaking, those with one to five years of experience in a mill. This training is well suited for new process engineers and technicians as well as new machine operators and new shift mana-gers. Additionally, those with extensive hands-on experience but little formal technical training will benefit from this session.
