Valmet has expanded its offering for corrugator plants and will launch a new IQ Speed Booster application at the FEFCO Technical Seminar 2021 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The application complements Valmet’s quality management control concept to corrugators and maximises production efficiency with ensured quality for corrugated board.
“With Valmet IQ Speed Booster, we can offer corrugated board manufacturers a new fully automated tool to maximise production rate and total output of the box plant. The new application is developed to work seamlessly with Valmet IQ corrugator close loop quality control system, which is widely used across the world. It takes care of corrugated board quality by using online measurements while boosting the speed. That makes it unique in corrugated board industry,” says Mikko Talonen, Business Manager, Automation, Valmet.
The IQ Speed Booster can be installed in the corrugators which are equipped with Valmet IQ Quality control system. The application monitors the corrugated board manufacturing process and boosts production speed if online quality measurement and control actuators allow the speed change.
