SCA Ortviken’s paper machine PM 5 is breaking production records with a new Valmet IQ Slice Profiler system
SCA Ortviken in Sweden, a producer of coated and uncoated publication papers, needed to modernize the end-of-life slice control on the headbox of its paper machine PM 5. As the existing slice control was a 17-year-old Valmet Jetmatic system, it was natural to look at upgrading it to a Valmet IQ Slice Profiler.
