PAPTAC Launches New Technical On-line Forums

  PAPTAC is pleased to announce the launch of 5 on-line technical forums. These forums are part of the benefits of participating in the PAPTAC Technical Communities and have been added to the 5 new TC Websites that were launched recently.

Members of the Energy, Maintenance, Paper Machine Technology, Paperboard Packaging and Process Control Communities now have the opportunity to ask specific questions and post/answer topics addressing challenges and opportunities related to their operations and field of expertise by connecting to the forum with their username and password.

As PAPTAC develops Microsites for its other communities in the coming months, forums for these communities will also become available. Members who have not yet joined a Community are welcomed to visit the microsites and register as part of their member benefits.

Be sure to have a look at the forums and start exchanging new ideas and opinions!
