South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences and Trimble Forestry are starting educational project together. The students learn how to use Process Diagnostics System Wedge and how to analyze different process hick ups.
Jarkko Männynsalo a head of biotechnology studies at XAMK tells that the students of process technology are always exited to use real tools and have real process data from the mill. Simulations are also popular. Process and paper industry has suffered a loss of students due to a poor job propects in the past. Now future looks brighter.
-We have made cooperation with Andritz, they have given us their valuable time teaching about remote accessing in the mill. In those studies we had first encounter with Wedge, says Männynsalo.
For Trimble Forestry the cooperation with XAMK is important. Vice President of Sales Matti Häkkinen says that industry needs new talent.
-We are more than happy to give our time to educate students about Process Diagnostics System. We are going to install Wedge to campus and ask our clients to give some real process data for school assignments.
South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences is a strong implementer of research, development and innovation activities. They cooperate with national companies and organizations, universities and research centers.
Trimble Forestry is participating in one of the biggest pulp and paper industry events of the year in Charlotte, NC, USA. PaperCon 2018 will offer technical sessions that provides tangible takeaways to solve many technical challenges.
Trimble Forestry will be showcasing WEDGE™ – a powerful, data analytics and diagnostics software toolbox that enables manufacturing operations to reduce process variability and avoid run-to-failure events by simplifying and reinforcing continuous process improvement and optimal operational benchmarking and settings.
PaperCon 2018 will be held on April 15-18, 2018 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, USA. Our booth number is 123, please come and meet us there!
