The two orders follow the successful start-up in 2010 of a Metso QCS to Sofidel's Papyros mill in Katerini near Thessaloniki, Greece. This replaced an existing system to take advantage of Metso's unique tissue quality measurement capabilities. The system was supplied with non-nuclear IQFiber sensor and a Metso scanner. Since the QCS start-up, the mill has reported good results and a useful increase in machine speed.
