Solving Tissue Softness Problems with Data Analytics
New developments with Data Analytics, as well as softness measuring and testing techniques, now allow tissue makers to use the Geometric-Mean Breaking-Length (GMBL) as an important tool to reduce softness variations. This gives them the ability to systematically reduce basis weight in the sheet which, in turn, can achieve significant cost savings for fibers, energy, and chemicals, while at the same time, potentially allowing machine speed to increase.
