Valmet will supply a warp control system to Stora Enso Packaging's corrugated board plant in Ostroleka, Poland. The system will reduce warp of the final product and improve the corrugated board plant's overall performance.
The order was included in Valmet's fourth quarter 2017 orders received. The delivery will take place in late spring this year. The value of the order will not be disclosed. Typically, the order value of these kinds of automation system deliveries is below EUR one million.
"We have good cooperation with Stora Enso Packaging. Due to the positive experiences and results gained from earlier deliveries, Stora Enso decided to choose Valmet as the supplier of the automatic warp control system for its corrugator," summarizes Juha Mykkänen, Sales Manager, Automation, Valmet.
Information about the delivery
The warp control system, based on moisture measurement, is used to correct warping of all corrugated board types and to improve corrugated board box plant performance. The system consists of Valmet IQ Converting Scanners with moisture measurements, Valmet IQ Moisturizer and Valmet IQ Warp Measurement, which are integrated together with automatic MPC closed-loop controls.
