Espoo, Finland 25 September 2017 -- Valmet launches a new scanner, Valmet IQ Converting Scanner, at Labelexpo Europe 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. It complements Valmet's quality management control concept for self-adhesive laminates and other paper and board converting machines.
"With IQ Converting Scanner, we can maximize customer benefits, namely high and stable quality as well as excellent productivity. The solution enables the use of Valmet IQ CD/MD controls to lift process control to a new level for converting lines," says Mikko Talonen, Business Manager, Automation, Valmet.
Valmet IQ Converting Scanner can be easily installed in different process locations, thanks to its innovative sensor support technology. The scanner enables direct adhesive and silicone measurements as well as moisture measurements to be positioned in an optimum process location from a quality and performance point of view.
The new scanner with online measurements enables the utilization of machine and cross-direction controls for moisture, adhesive and silicone in converting machines. These control solutions improve and stabilize the end-product quality, decrease the amount of broke and allow operators to concentrate on quality management and production optimization.
