Jan. 25, 2018 - Valmet says its new compact moisturizer, Valmet IQ Converting Moisturizer, for self-adhesive laminating lines corrects all kinds of curl and cross-direction moisture profiles.

The micro droplet moisturizing system features air-atomized micro-droplet nozzles with a 50-mm spacing that are controlled with high-accuracy linear water control valves, describes the company. In addition to the water spray system that controls curl and moisture levels and CD/MD controls, the solution features a range of online quality measurements to get information from the process. It also includes web inspection and monitoring systems to help detect quality defects and identify their root causes.

“With IQ Converting Moisturizer, self-adhesive label manufacturers can control curl much faster and more accurately compared with conventional steam or spray systems. Its remoistening capacity is up to five times higher compared with conventional systems, making it an excellent choice for highspeed lines, too. The new moisturizer can be connected to CD/MD controls to stabilize product quality during speed and grade changes,” said Mikko Talonen, Business Manager, Automation, Valmet.
