On the BM 3 in the same plant, stable basis weight CD profiles and short setting times (until achieving the guaranteed quality values after stoppages, grade changes or breaks) are also to be accomplished. In the future, the OnQ ModuleTap at the headbox will ensure this. The automatic control system is especially suitable for retrofitting existing headboxes from various manufacturers on which there is no dilution water system.
In addition, Cartiere del Polesine has chosen to conclude a service contract with Voith Paper Automation for both machines. Within the framework of the "remote diagnostics" service module, the package allows a remote diagnostic service of the automation systems used, if the customer so desires. A Voith Paper Automation service employee logs into the system of Cartiere del Polesine via an online connection and in this way can check the current status and eliminate malfunctions or carry out optimizations, if required.
The service module also includes 24/7 telephone support by the Voith service team. This guarantees very short reaction times and allows Cartiere del Polesine to get competent advice and support any time it is necessary. The service contract will come into effect in July 2011.
Back in 2007, Voith Paper Automation had equipped the BM 4 with its OnQ Profilmatic moisture CD profile control and the associated OnQ ModuleJet actuator system. This follow-up order is now the best proof that Cartiere del Polesine considers Voith Paper Automation to be a reliable partner. The automation upgrade has been planned in close collaboration with both teams and precisely adjusted to the needs and the available budget.
