Atlanta, GA-based Coldwater Group has acquired RPM Technologies,
Inc., Ludlow, MA. RPM supplies drainage equipment
and drainage process solutions; its product line includes the
patented Acu-Pulse™ and Acu-Step™ products.
The Acu-Pulse blade is the only adjustable pulse-generating
forming element of its kind offered to the paper industry. Its
design allows on-the-run adjustment which lets
the papermaker optimize from grade to grade without
having to change blades.
The Acu-Step blade is a unique, proprietary
blade design that allows for accurate, on-the-run,
vertical adjustment of the blade’s surface to the elevation
of the forming fabric.
Coldwater will move all RPM operations to facilities
in either Appleton, WI, or Atlanta, GA. It
also has manufacturing facilities in Karlstad, Sweden
and sales offices in Spain and Thailand.
