Valmet – a global developer, and supplier of process technologies, automation, and services for the pulp, paper, and energy industries – has launched two new scanner models, Valmet IQ Scanner XL and Valmet IQ Scanner S. Both are designed for optimal production efficiency and superior performance in the paper, board, non-woven, and paper converting industries.

Intelligent scanning

The Valmet IQ Quality Control System is a customizable quality management solution that enables increased process performance while meeting quality goals. It consists of scanners, a wide range of measurements, advanced controls, and applications. From a standalone scanner to an integrated solution, the latest additions include all the features of the Valmet IQ Scanner portfolio. Robust engineering, high-quality materials, and an intelligent, flexible sensor platform are combined to deliver accurate and real-time scanning.

The new Valmet IQ Scanner XL is the largest scanner in the family, designed for extra-wide paper and board machines. The Valmet IQ Scanner S for non-woven and paper-converting applications features flexibility and reduced dimensions to fit the tight spaces of machines.

Scanners are the foundation of quality control systems. The new scanners help us meet the production efficiency and performance demands of customers. Fast edge-to-edge scanning provides data for precise quality control, while robust construction and built-in diagnostic ensure reliability,” says Marko Toskala, director, Quality Management Systems, Valmet.

Maximized reliability and performance

The Valmet IQ Scanner is compatible with the new Valmet DNA user interface. The intuitive web-based user interface provides the tools and insights operators need to leverage real-time information from Valmet IQ devices, helping them make the right decision instantly and optimize quality faster. 

Enhanced diagnostics and proactive performance management secure the availability of quality control systems. By providing early warnings of potential upsets and detailed insights for corrective actions, customers are assured of maximum uptime and optimum performance.

The Valmet IQ Scanner family is backed by a wide portfolio of onsite and remote services provided by Valmet Performance Center. All Valmet IQ products are developed and manufactured in Finland. 

Valmet has been at the forefront of developing digital solutions for its customers since the 1960s. In 1979, Valmet became the second company in the world to launch a distributed control system (DCS) for process automation, and the company’s first Quality Control System (QCS) was introduced in the 1990s. 

The Valmet IQ quality management solution consists of leading technology in all the devices and applications required to control and optimize both process performance and end-product quality. Today, the advanced Valmet IQ quality management system ensures optimal quality for over 2,200 pulp, paper, board, tissue, non-woven, and paper-converting mills around the world.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
