New QCS in Mänttä performs from day one
With the introduction of a new QCS (Quality Control System) platform just months away, Valmet chose a challenging location for the first pilot system at Metsä Tissue in Mänttä. The machine was PM7, producing cooking and baking paper and there were just two days to remove the old QCS scanner and install the new Valmet IQ before the machine went back to full production.
|Location||Mänttä, central Finland|
Replacement of the old scanner, dating back to the early 1990’s, had become necessary with components reaching end of life and performance no longer meeting Metsä Tissue’s exacting requirements.
|Solution||Valmet IQ Scanner with caliper, moisture and basis weight sensors|
More accurate and dependable measurements.
Easier cleaning and much faster and more effective visual inspection of the sensors than earlier.
