Increased capacity shows value of OEM parts in tissue converting

27.03.2020 | Elizabeth Wilson | 1 min read Topics |

Tissue converters around the country and across the globe are increasing capacity and ramping up production to meet consumer demand amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Some facilities report expediting production and operating 24/7 to meet consumers’ demands.

For many, manufacturing equipment is being pushed harder and longer, with output demands far exceeding their typical use. As such, the added wear and tear may prove that predictive models for preventative maintenance based on cycle counts or timeframes may no longer be reliable.

Unexpected equipment failure can lead to costly downtime and production delays. Investing in and stocking OEM spare parts for tissue converting equipment can help maximize uptime and keep operations running smoothly. Here’s why.

A precise fit

Production facilities that produce non-OEM parts often lack the quality control measures required for those that make genuine OEM parts. Machining and other production processes typically fail to meet strict specifications. Even the slightest dimensional variation in a finished product can result in undue strain on stress, especially under high-vibration environments. Genuine OEM parts ensure an exact fit and require no retrofitting or retooling.


In addition to poor performance due to improper fit, the material compositions used in non-OEM parts often fall short. Metal parts may have pitting or galling which can inhibit machine performance. Plastic or composite materials may be too porous or weak, leading to potential valve leaks or breaks. OEM parts meet strict specifications for materials and are intended to work hand-in-hand with the systems they were designed for.


Dependability is the cornerstone of any manufacturer’s success, and OEM parts leave nothing to chance. As is true in nearly every industry, most professionals agree that OEM parts save money in the long run because they last longer, perform better, and minimize the chances of equipment failure.


The use of OEM parts typically ensures that any equipment warranties will remain intact, whereas the use of non-OEM parts may void a warranty.

Maintaining operations and output

Maintaining operations and output is critical at this time, and having an adequate supply of spare OEM parts on hand can help you maximize uptime. It’s important to vet suppliers and ensure you’re getting the quality OEM parts you need when you need them, and that they are, indeed, suited to your specific tissue converting equipment.
