Nov. 22, 2017 – Valmet describes the Valmet IQ Converting Scanner for corrugated board as a “long-awaited addition” to its quality management control concept for corrugators and other board converting machines.

“IQ Converting Scanner offers corrugated board manufacturers a more economical way to measure liner moisture levels. It enables the use of Valmet IQ CD/MD controls in corrugators, resulting in higher quality as well as improved productivity,” said Mikko Talonen, business manager, Automation, Valmet.

The scanner can be installed in different process locations thanks to its sensor support technology, and enables direct moisture measurements to be positioned in an “optimum” process location from a quality and performance point of view. According to Valmet, 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.
