Valmet will supply a Valmet IQ quality control system for corrugators to SCGP's corrugated board box plant in Navanakorn plant, Thailand. The system will enable the plant to improve corrugated board quality, reduce rejected paper caused by warped board and improve plant productivity. The start-up of the system is scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.
The order is included in Valmet's orders received for the fourth quarter of 2021. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
The order is a repeat order to SCGP, followed by a successful Valmet IQ quality control system at their Ratchaburi mill's 1920mm wide corrugator. The system was started up in late 2020, and since then, the plant's total productivity and corrugated board quality have been improved.
"We always want to meet our customers' quality requirements, which drives us to pursue the latest technology of improving product quality consistently. We're happy to continue collaborating with Valmet on the quality improvement." Says Jesda Assavarungsi, Manager – Production Department, Thai Containers Group Co., Ltd. in SCGP.
"We have good cooperation with SCGP.
