In Mill™ Design Service
On Site Engineering
The proper design and application of a doctoring system can improve performance and the return on your investment. Kadant’s field engineering and design group offers a unique service to rapidly design your doctor system on-site for optimal performance.
This innovative service provides you with a Kadant application specialist and a design engineer to create a layout for your doctoring system on location. Working with mill personnel, Kadant’s In Mill Design Service team takes detailed measurements during a regularly scheduled machine outage. All within the same visit, the team creates alternative solutions to improve doctor performance and minimize the costs of the project. Questions regarding design options, best practices, and materials selection can be addressed on-site, face-to-face. The cycle time from initial design to final approval is accelerated, and lead time is minimized.

“Kadant’s on site design services saves time and reduces miscommunication and ultimately results in a better designed product. We’re able to go from a blank sheet of paper to a completed design in 2 days. Because the Kadant design work is being done on site it allows for all departments, Production, Maintenance, & Engineering to influence the design at the concept stage which results in a better end product from both a runnability and maintenance standpoint”. -Engineer, Twin Rivers Paper, Madawaska, ME
