Paper and board production can be challenging nowadays. The necessity to innovate for more sustainable paper and board production demands a thorough understanding of the capabilities of your production process. Energy and water consumption and recycled raw materials demand production process adjustments. Each reel is carefully monitored for thickness, weight, dry- and wet strength of the paper, color, etc. Which process parameters influence for instance the wet strength?
The production of paper-based packaging solutions has its own challenges. Dealing with strict dimensional end-product specifications, the production process needs to be closely monitored and fully in control. Critical characteristics where consistency is important for high productivity are ink-surface interaction, dimensional stability, flatness, clean edges and surfaces and correct folding action.
You need to produce the expected volumes and – even more challenging – a consistent end-product quality. Meanwhile you’re surely focused on getting the most out of your installations, you are always trying to increase your volumes and you need to deal with unplanned downtimes. And what about decreasing rejected batches and improve product quality performance?
Yes! It is a challenging game. And to perform as the best in this game you need to have a perfect insight into the characteristics of your raw materials, processing conditions within your factory, operator observations, and in the end your product quality performance. Dealing with varieties in raw material composition, in-line monitoring of product characteristics, and – in the end – knowing exactly your actual cost-price per product and batch.
