Valmet continues to grow its quality management offering by launching two new scanner models, Valmet IQ Scanner XL and Valmet IQ Scanner S. Both are designed for optimal production efficiency and superior performance in paper, board, nonwoven, and paper converting industries.

Intelligent scanning for every application

The Valmet IQ Quality Control System is a highly customizable quality management solution that enables increased process performance while meeting quality goals. It consists of scanners, wide range of measurements, advanced controls and applications. From a standalone scanner to an integrated solution, the latest additions include all the features of the Valmet IQ Scanner portfolio. Robust engineering, high-quality materials, and an intelligent, flexible sensor platform are combined to deliver accurate and real-time scanning.

The new Valmet IQ Scanner XL is the largest scanner in the family, designed for extra-wide paper and board machines. The Valmet IQ Scanner S for nonwoven and paper converting applications features flexibility and reduced dimensions to fit the tight spaces of machines.

“Scanners are the foundation of quality control systems. The new scanners help us meet the production efficiency and performance demands of customers. Fast edge-to-edge scanning provides data for precise quality control, while robust construction and built-in diagnostic ensure reliability,” says Marko Toskala, Director, Quality Management Systems, Valmet.

Maximized reliability and performance

The Valmet IQ Scanner is fully compatible with the new Valmet DNA User Interface. The structured, intuitive web-based user interface provides the tools and insights operators need to leverage real-time information from Valmet IQ devices, helping them make the right decision instantly and optimize quality faster.

Enhanced diagnostics and proactive performance management secure the availability of quality control systems. By providing early warnings of potential upsets and detailed insights for corrective actions, customers are assured of maximum uptime and optimum performance.

The Valmet IQ Scanner family is backed by a wide portfolio of onsite and remote services provided by Valmet Performance Center. All Valmet IQ products are developed and manufactured in Finland.
