Weidmann Electrical Grade Paper Mill Tour,
Urbana, Ohio

Monday, October 28, 6:30 PM

Weidmann Electrical Technology invites you to visit their state-of-the-art electrical grade paper mill and converting center in Urbana, Ohio. The highlight of this tour will be a seven cylinder paper machine which was designed by Weidmann engineers specifically to deliver electrical grade papers that serve the instrument, distribution, and power transformer industry.

This machine differentiates Weidmann capabilities in that it can manufacture both thin grades of paper required for wrapping conductors used in power transformers and thicker grades of paper used in distribution transformers. This paper can be thermally upgraded using the Insuldur process.

Also included in the tour will be a visit to various converting operations that convert paper and pressboard (which is produced at the Weidmann pressboard mills in St. Johnsbury, Vermont) into specific materials for transformers including crepe paper, DPP, and duct strip.

Tour is open to all – register when you register for the meeting

The tour bus will depart from the Hyatt Regency Hotel at 6:30 PM. A box dinner will be provided when you enter the bus which you can enjoy on the trip to the Mill. The bus trip will take approximately one hour. We expect to return to the hotel by 10:30 PM.

Please note that Weidmann will provide a meal for this tour. If you register and your plans change please inform the IEEE staff. If you have special dietary needs please indicate this on the registration as well.
