Valmet gets PQV system order from BillerudKorsnäs in Skärblacka
Valmet has received a repeat order for a Valmet IQ Process and Quality Vision (PQV) system from BillerudKorsnäs Skärblacka mill in Sweden. The system will be installed on the mill's paper machine PM 7 to maximize the production line's efficiency, boost end-product quality and improve business performance.
The order was included in Valmet's first quarter of 2018 orders received. The system was accepted by the mill and taken into production use in August. In 2017, Valmet supplied an identical system for the mill's PM 10.
"Having two systems of the same kind makes operation, upkeep and maintenance easier for the mill. Additionally, as Valmet has a local service center nearby, the mill has easy access to service support," says Aki Torvinen, Business Manager, Machine Vision, Automation, Valmet.
Valmet's delivery includes a Valmet IQ Process and Quality Vision (PQV) system that consists of a Valmet IQ Web Inspection System (WIS) and a Valmet IQ Web Monitoring System (WMS) with 20 cameras. The WIS features transmission and surface inspection for both sides of the web on the 4.9-meter-wide PM 7.
PQV is a comprehensive machine vision solution that covers the entire pulp and paper production process, as well as the production processes of other sheet-based materials.
