Fast fiber morphology analysis enables UFV to develop new technologies
The Pulp and Paper Laboratory at the Federal University of Vicosa (UFV) in Brazil has laboratory facilities that make it possible to carry out main tests and analyzes of cellulose and paper, as well as the laboratory scale production of these products. The laboratory wanted to increase the analysis range with a practical, modern, and technologically advanced solution. To ensure fast and easy fiber analysis, the university decided to purchase a Valmet Fiber Image Analyzer (Valmet FS5) with ultra-high definition technology.
|Challenge||The laboratory wanted to increase the analysis range of cellulose and paper with a practical, modern, and technologically advanced solution.|
|Solution||Valmet Fiber Image Analyzer (Valmet FS5), the analyzer can evaluate tens of thousands of fibers from a single sample with measurements based on a highly sensitive training pattern created by a neural-network-based “Teachtool”.|
