Under a license agreement with FPInnovations, Technidyne will manufacture, sell and service FPInnovations’ macrostickies measurement technology worldwide. The FPAutoSpeck is a fully automated analyzer that determines light and heavy macrostickies in recycled pulp using image analysis. This technology is the first in the world to provide real-time feedback.

The FPAutoSpeck automatically counts and categorizes macrocontaminants from up to four different process lines. Whether the unit is operated in the manual mode for the survey of contaminants in the mill or in the automatic mode for control, it saves time and money by providing immediate feedback to operators when evaluating incoming stock, screening, and chemical processes. Technidyne will provide installation, training, instrument repair, parts sales, preventative maintenance and 24-hour customer support.
