Optimized and stable operation with advanced bale weight control

By utilizing the data collected from the scale by the Bale press, optimized operation can be achieved. The data is fed back in the process, adjusting settings to improve performance, step by step all the way back to the headbox. With this, all bales are kept with the same width, even during recirculation of grades change. The data is also used to adjust the profile to keep all bales with the same weight, compensating moisture differences caused by felts or other process variations.
