Over the past four years, Altec has been providing green end upgrades throughout Georgia Pacific’s (GP’s) plywood plants. To-date, Altec has successfully upgraded 11 GP green ends, covering infeed, charger controls, XY scanners, lathe controls complete with electric actuators, tray drives and controls, lathe spindle drives, and stacker controls. In addition, Altec has provided GP with extensive mechanical engineering services.
Altec and GP enjoy ongoing success with obsolescence upgrades on green ends, which have shown dramatic improvement in recovery and production as a result of this partnership. Bannister Energy Solutions and Power Systems Inc of Florida (PSIF) have also been key players in these successful upgrades, and the collaboration between the four companies has allowed for smooth and expedient commissioning, minimal downtime, and has made it possible to complete many projects in a short amount of time.
Altec continues to work with GP on upgrades and new projects.
