Roll service agreements for board and paper making
Added value from agreement-based cooperation
The goal of 360°Rolls agreements is to ensure that customers can meet the requirements set for their operations. Valmet helps board and paper makers to maintain high levels of equipment operations, improve efficiency, and give all-round cost-control of their roll maintenance spend. By setting common targets, the performance of rolls can be raised to a completely new level.
360°Rolls agreements are an efficient way to minimize the lifecycle costs of rolls. This is achieved by optimizing roll maintenance intervals, adopting best practices related to roll covers, and reducing the number of roll failures. A 360°Rolls agreement is not only a question of maintenance, it is also about making sure the customer has the right technological solutions in place to improve efficiency.

CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORIES AND TECHNICAL ARTICLES
One plus one is more than two
To ensure its paper machine roll reliability and availability, the Kerinci mill in Indonesia has entered a full-scope roll service agreement with Valmet, including a condition monitoring system. This is Valmet’s first roll service agreement combining roll maintenance and remote condition monitoring, and the results can already be seen in improved performance.
Roll service agreement increases reliability
Close partnership with Valmet and Savon Sellu increased cost efficiency and roll availability. Savon Sellu’s board machine started running in 1968, and more than nine million tonnes of highquality fluting board has since been dispatched all over the world from Kuopio, Finland. In order to improve the availability of rolls and lower costs, Savon Sellu signed a roll service agreement for the board machine with Valmet in 2011.
Unique cooperation agreement with the Hallsta mill
A unique roll service agreement was signed at Holmen Paper’s Hallsta mill in Sweden on June 22, 2011. “We have exceptionally high expectations for this agreement – and I’m not just talking about the quality of roll grinding and improved maintenance,", says Daniel Peltonen, Technical Manager at Holmen Paper Hallsta.
