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.

Valmet's delivery consists of a Valmet DNA Automation System for the process controls of the board machine and effluent treatment, partial wet-end machine controls, and a Valmet IQ Quality Control System (QCS) with one scanner, related measurements as well as machine- and cross-direction controls. Valmet DNA Help guides operators and indicates reasons for disturbances. These systems will replace the mill's existing obsolete systems and bring its automation to a new level by improving process reliability, runnability and end product quality.

 Delkeskamp is a fourth-generation family-run company that produces testliner, fluting and kraftliner replacement paper as well as corrugated board with diverse combinations of corrugation types. The company's focus in paper production lies in high-grammage kraftliner replacement paper and a fast and flexible supply.
