24 June 15: Vertical Machine--Back to the Future



We have been around long enough now that many readers are submitting materials.  This is great--keep them coming folks.  You longtime readers will recall last year we caused quite a stir discussing vertical paper machines.


Well, Ken Meine, a previous presenter and hopefully a presenter at this year's 6th Annual LGMI Conference in October at University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, recently sent us these pictures of a vertical paper machine.  It was a lab machine built by Krofta.
