Market demand increases importance of tissue pattern development

Importance of Pattern Development

GB Embossing has the capacity to keep pace with tissue and napkin producers

Tissue pattern development has moved to the forefront of the converting industry as the demand for high-quality, higher-margin consumer products continues to climb. The number of people working remotely has skyrocketed during the pandemic, resulting in increased demand for napkins, and rolled and folded tissues for home use rather than institutional settings.

For decades, the combination of tissue pattern development experience and roll production capacity of GB Embossing provided an American-based supply solution for tissue and towel embossers. Today, in addition to these embossing capabilities, we have access to a total of 47 engraving stands as part of the USA-based Precision Roll Solutions family of companies.

Tissue pattern development has become an even more crucial aspect of your business as the market has gravitated toward higher consumer volumes. That means end-user markets are increasingly demanding and attentive to embossed products. PRS Tissue fills that need with tissue pattern development for new rolls as well as refurbished and repaired embossing rolls.

Tissue pattern development differentiates your products

Best practices call for involving our technical team as early in the tissue pattern development process as possible. Our graphics department can collaborate with customer teams from project inception to dial in precise performance and appearance characteristics.

We are able to take equipment variables into account to ensure each specific tissue pattern development effort results in optimal performance. This holds true even in cases where the basic pattern remains largely unchanged. Upgrades in equipment and run speeds can generate a need for tissue pattern development tweaks that make it possible for the production floor to take advantage.

We have 3D scanners and the latest engraving technology at our disposal, and our USA-based facilities mean you don’t have to worry about international supply chain issues in receiving your embossing rolls on time. The PRS Tissue team includes technicians with as much as 40 years of experience in the industry. We’ve seen it all during that time from short-term trends to longer-term solutions.
