Valmet IQ Induction Profiler

Valmet IQ Induction Profiler is an efficient tool for cross-machine caliper or gloss control. With the narrowest zones on the market, it ensures precise high-resolution CD control and meets the challenges of today’s calendering processes. IQ Induction Profiler provides high power output with excellent efficiency.


  • IQ Induction profiler features non-contact heating of the steel roller surface. High-frequency induction power heating keeps the heat penetration low in the roller surface, resulting in lower heat conduction in the roller shell.
  • The profiler has a modular design with standardized components. In the integrated design compact power units are installed inside the beam. IQ Induction Profiler can be applied to any type of steel roll calenders even in very tight places.
  • IQ Induction Profiler is complemented by IQ Caliper CD Control which optimizes paper caliper profile. A direct caliper measurement and control achieve significant reductions in roll culls.
  • IQ Induction Profiler with IQ Gloss CD Control offers excellent gloss CD profiles especially on coated paper and board grades.
