Robinson excels at paper processing equipment fabrication

Wisconsin roots provide Robinson Fabrication & Machine with industry expertise

As an established fabricator in the heart of paper production country, Robinson Fabrication & Machine’s long history in paper processing equipment fabrication gives it a leg up over competitors who do not share a similar level of experience.

Wisconsin is one of the nation’s leading states in the production of specialty papers, including tissue paper, toilet paper and other lightweight papers. Paper processors throughout the Badger State and North America rely on paper processing equipment fabrication from Robinson Fab & Machine, a division of Robinson Metal, Inc., to remain competitive in what is increasingly becoming a margin-sensitive industry.

“Our customers depend on our experience within the paper processing industry to deliver equipment that fits with their specific production model,”says Jamie Tilkens, Robinson Fab & Machine division manager. “Systems can vary depending on the application and facility restrictions, which is why our team works collaboratively with customers to ensure a perfect fit.”

Paper processing equipment fabrication to fill the gaps

While high-ticket paper machines and converting rolls are the domain of manufacturers who specialize in those products, additional paper processing equipment fabrication services are needed for the variety of machines and containers that play important roles in the overall process.

Robinson Fab & Machine has the resources on hand to take customers’ paper processing equipment designs from concept to complete manufacturing assembly. This relatively rare capability among metal fabrication shops makes Robinson Fab & Machine a valued partner for paper processors.

“We have the expertise to suggest design changes when appropriate, which can save our customers valuable time in bringing equipment online,” Tilkens says. “Our company can bring considerable paper processing equipment fabrication expertise to the table.”
