Cascade, the Inventors of Density-Based Tissue Clamp Design ecognizing the need for a scientific approach to handle low-density paper, Cascade Corporation invented the first convex contact pad for Tissue Roll Clamps more than 20 years ago. Ongoing research, and a culture of continuous improvement, has revolutionized the industry and enables Cascade to consistently release innovative attachments and effective damage control solutions for tissue paper producers. R Many tissue companies are seeing tremendous benefits utilizing Cascade Clamps. According to JBT Marketing Manager Mark Longacre, "The use of Cascade clamps on JBT's Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) has resulted in a measurable reduction in paper damage for tissue customers, with a payback period as low as one year." Cascade Tissue Roll Clamps are custom designed for each user to meet their specific needs. According to Cascade Product Manager Brad Vandehey, "We don't just offer one clamp or pad that fits all, we offer a variety of base solutions, we customize Tissue Paper Roll Clamps for each customer's application." Vandehey says, "Using mathematical models that fine-tune the pad size, and by calculating the paper density, we invented several unique pad types with custom shapes and sizes to meet the demanding needs of the industry. Additionally significant, we provide the expertise to help users choose which pad will be best suited for them." The pads Vandehey refers to are high-friction contact pads that hold rolls securely with minimal clamp force resulting in a reduction of roll out-of-roundness and subsequent paper damage. Cascade's pad uses a herringbone pattern that allows the paper to glide and flow over the pad in both horizontal and vertical directions. This unique diamondpatterned surface has been shown to provide the best combination of friction for tissue paper. A Variety of Pad Types Meets Customer's Individual Needs Single Diameter: For high-density tissue paper grades, such as industrial toweling. The large surface area of the pad minimizes roll deformation and specialized features prevent cutting of the tissue. This pad can be used to handle narrow width rolls. Double Diameter (with optional flared ends): For medium-density tissue paper grades, such as paper toweling. Optional features reduce cutting of tissue at pad ends. Unique pad qualities allow the paper to transition around the pad without tearing and adapts to slight to moderate paper deflection. Convex: For low-density tissue paper grades, such as ultra-soft facial, toilet tissue and soft toweling (TAD paper). Features a convex surface that flares out at the end, to provide a smooth transition during roll deflection. The shape conforms to the surface of the roll, allowing the paper to flow around the pad, preventing creasing, tearing and cutting into the roll. The hardened wear surface prevents pad wear caused by floor contact. Cascade Corporation, established in Portland, OR in 1943, is the global leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of material handling attachments, forks, accessories and related technologies. Along with advanced damage reduction technology, flexible manufacturing, short lead times and quality products, Cascade's operations and production, unmatched service, support and expertise, positions them at the forefront of the paper handling industry.
