A development project between Stora Enso Packaging in Jönköping Sweden and Valmet has proven that a key to higher efficiency is to eliminate warp problems by controlling the liner reels’ moisture profile in the corrugator. ”The corrugated board we produce is often aimed at packaging requiring high quality printing which needs flat sheets and minimal impact on the outer liner to avoid washboard that effect on the print quality”, says Ola Lindberg, Process engineer at Stora Enso Packaging in Jönköping. “Our focus is on corrugated board packaging where high print quality is requested and our customers are therefore in practically all businesses."

Stable and consistent process and totally flat sheets of corrugated board coming out of the corrugator with more frequent quality changes and smaller order sizes.
Two Valmet IQ Scanners for top and back side moisture measurement
Two Valmet IQ Moisturizers for correcting moisture variations, one on liner side of the single face board and the other on bottom liner before the double backer
Valmet IQ Moisture control for automatic moisture correction
Approved quality achieved faster after each grade change
Warp problems eliminated
Even moisture profiles give high efficiency

Cut corrugator waste at your box plant. Improve warp >50 %
Valmet IQ for corrugators combines precise online moisture, temperature and warp measurements with reliable closed-loop controls and moisturizers. The quality control system (QCS) stabilizes raw material and process variations throughout the value chain and optimizes both process performance and sheet quality in the corrugator.
