ABB has enhanced its L&W Autoline automated paper testing system, scalable to fit any lab.

The solution optimizes quality control for all papermaking operations.

L&W Autoline incorporates a visual touchscreen interface.

Other features include a smooth feeding system that pulls the samples through the machine to minimize jamming, a dual test function to reduce queuing by allowing simultaneous testing, high-volume information storage and real-time visualization.

The system – which can handle everything from sample preparation to the final reel report – reduces dependence on manual testing.

Visualizations are instantly available in real time to operations and engineering personnel both locally and remotely.

L&W Autoline now comes in two different sizes: L&W Autoline S has a reduced footprint for smaller mills and those new to automated testing. L&W Autoline L is a larger unit, designed for more extensive testing requirements.

Both options share the same feature set, including sequential testing coupled with the ability to capture more than 100 quality parameters by CD position, providing a high quantity and quality of information for fast corrective action.
