Remote pilot trials

Every day we develop our offering and services to best match paper and board makers’ needs. Piloting is one of our core assets when developing solutions together with customers. A vital part of a fluent collaboration with customers is to maintain the research and development work even in uncertain times. Our pilot facilities for board and paper making and finishing are equipped with online video monitoring systems, making trials available also remotely – no matter, where you are located.

I was really impressed and happy about Valmet’s remote pilot trials. Especially a camera located inside a curtain coater gave a good view about the trial.
