MoveRoll Oy, an innovative Finnish company, has invented a unique way to convey paper rolls. This new roll handling solution has dramatically changed the level of safety and energy consumption in paper mills. Now, MoveRoll is ready to launch the next, improved product generation.
MoveRoll Oy, located in Porvoo, Finland, continues to innovate roll handling. During the last years thinking out of the box and engaging customers and end users in product development has become a second nature of the company. The results of this development work will be presented at PaperCon 2013 and Zellcheming Expo 2013. The new product range features a new generation of MoveRoll conveyors, new bumpers, and as special highlight zero-energy receivers. “We developed the receiver from zero, tested it in the field, and the results are excellent. Traditional systems consume up to 20 MWh energy annually. Our receiver does not need energy at all.” says MoveRoll’s CEO Mikko Rantanen.
At this point, there is already evidence that MoveRoll has started to change the way how rolls move in paper mills. MoveRoll’s patented pressure conveying system is well-tested and industry approved, and the company has customers and partners all around the world. Measurements have shown that, compared to traditional roll handling systems, MoveRoll products save up to 85 % in energy consumption. Feedback from the industry has it, that due to modularity and lack of moving parts, MoveRoll conveyors are flexible, robust, and easy to use. Compared to the traditional way of roll handling, there is evidence that MoveRoll boosts safety in paper mills to a whole new level. “MoveRoll is an amazing product! I have never seen a safer way to handle rolls in a paper mill or in my shop testing facility. The product complements our product line beautifully.” says MoveRoll customer Peter Hanna, President of Advanced Dynamics.
MoveRoll Oy is a global supplier of high-quality roll handling equipment. The company has a strong focus on innovation and involves Nordic paper mills in product development. This collaboration ensures that the innovation focus is always on issues, central for the paper industry, such as safety, energy consumption, productivity, and usability. “Developing new solutions that would revolutionize the industry has always been our main goal. We find fresh solutions to industry problems!” adds Mikko Rantanen.
