Metso has introduced a new scanning formation sensor, called Metso IQ Formation Measurement, which uses high-speed image capture and analysis technology to define small-scale sheet uniformity. Machine operators can quickly optimize sheet formation visually and meet formation index specifications while the paper machine is running.

The sensor resolves sequential, instantaneous pictures of the sheet as it scans across the paper machine and displays them on the QCS operator interface. A formation index and other numerical data which defines the distribution of fiber floc and void sizes are determined by the sensor’s sophisticated image analysis software.
