SAICA was aiming for improved quality, reduced costs, and responsible fiber use, but it found itself with innovative coated white top liner grades with better properties than they bargained for. This was a result of three partners – SAICA, Valmet and pigment supplier Omya – joining forces.
When the goal was set in 2013 it looked almost impossible to reach. But less than five years later, Lee & Man Paper had made it: with the help of Valmet, they made it to the top three in the Chinese tissue market.
With the construction of a new bioproduct pulp mill in Finland, Metsä Group selected Valmet DNA Machine Monitoring as an integral part of the mill-wide Valmet DNA automation system. As part of the machine condition monitoring application, remote diagnostic support provided by Valmet has proved to be an essential aid to predictive maintenance.
Valmet’s automation systems and industrial internet solutions enable the plant to run at a totally new level of efficiency in its performance and operations.
