Along with the standard sensors for measuring basis weight, moisture, and ash content, the package also includes the 100% non-contacting caliper sensor Voith LSC QuantumSens and a Voith LSC color sensor. In addition, the new Voith color control will now be used on both machines in order to achieve uniform color quality along with high profile quality. The existing steam box and the re-moisturizer will be completely integrated into the OnQ quality control system. The deep integration in the existing PCS7 platform results in excellent consistency, efficient operation, and simple engineering.
