The aim of the upgrade is to achieve high quality finished products, increased productivity and the minimization of web break. The PM 2 is equipped with an OnQ quality control system that includes a scanner directly before the reel. The scanner is equipped with sensors to measure moisture, basis weight and color. Additionally, in order to achieve consistently high paper quality in machine direction, MD control for moisture and basis weight are installed. Since the smooth start-up in July 2010, the system runs at high satisfaction.
