Valmet to replace process and quality controls at Delkeskamp mill, Germany

Valmet Oyj's trade press release on May 16, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. EET

Valmet will supply a Valmet DNA Automation System and a Valmet IQ Quality Control System to Delkeskamp's cartonboard machine BM1 in Nortrup, Germany. The new systems will enable the mill to produce the desired end product quality more efficiently.

The order was included in Valmet's first quarter 2019 orders received. Typically, the value of these kinds of automation system deliveries is below EUR two million.

"With experience gained from hundreds of installations and our papermaking knowledge, we were able to offer a complete solution to meet the customer's needs. Our quality control system is well integrated into the Valmet DNA Automation System. This makes operation and maintenance much easier for the customer, since only one user interface with the same tools is needed for both systems. Advanced applications, such as Valmet DNA Help, enhance the operation even more," says Martin Grundmann, Sales Manager, Automation, Valmet.
