Valmet to supply an IQ Moisturizer for Adara Pakkaus

Valmet have confirmed it will supply a Valmet IQ Moisturizer system to Adara Pakkaus Oy in Finland.

The system will be automatically controlled according to existing Valmet IQ Warp measurement. The order is a system expansion for the existing Valmet IQ MD Moisture Control System. The target of the investment is to reduce warp waste, improve corrugated board quality and production efficiency.

“We have a good cooperation with Valmet, and now we are upgrading the existing quality management system with an automatic profiler, aiming to reduce Edge-warp and S-warp that are impossible to be corrected with typical corrugator actuators even if they are well-maintained and in perfect condition. We believe that extended quality management solutions will help us to further improve and serve our customers even better,” says Teemu Salo, Managing Director, Adara.

“We are proud to get a system extension order from Adara, showing us their trust towards Valmet’s expertise. We have earlier supplied Adara with automatic moisture and temperature controls, utilizing the Valmet IQ moisture measurement family to keep moisture levels in balance throughout the process. The IQ Moisturizer will be automatically controlled according to the existing Valmet IQ Warp Measurement, working in parallel with the existing Valmet quality management system in the production line. The target is to ensure sheet flatness also in problematic unbalanced grades in the corrugator and to avoid post-warp,” says Aki Leiniäinen, Technical Sales Manager, Automation Systems business line, Valmet.
