ISRA VISION PARSYTEC to install web break monitoring system at SCA mill in San Nicolás de Los Garza, Mexico

AACHEN, Germany and MONTERREY, Mexico , July 6, 2012 (Press Release) -ISRA VISION PARSYTEC will install a web break monitoring (WBM) system at the SCA mill in San Nicolás de Los Garza (near Monterrey), Nuevo Leon in Mexico - one of SCA's 38 facilities worldwide. SCA is the world's third-largest supplier of tissue. The company offers consumer tissue products including toilet paper, kitchen rolls, facial tissue, handkerchiefs and napkins. The ISRA VISION PARSYTEC system was chosen for its outstanding ability to detect critical defects, while at the same time, recording and analysing web breaks.

The WBM features the new IntelliCam, a compact stainless steel ruggedized all-in-one housing, hosting camera, illumination and processing units. The state-of-the-art cameras provide fast acquisition rates producing highest sensitivity and resolution currently available. Strong flashing LED lights are used in order to illuminate even hard-to-see paper machine areas. The LEDs flash very quickly - within µ-seconds, making it possible to acquire brilliant images even at the highest of web speeds. The integrated embedded processor provides for complete image analysis and long video sequence buffering.

As a portable system, the IntelliCam can be easily installed and setup almost anywhere across the web. It provides increased performance as a result of all of these features and is able to detect critical defects and those events which reduce run-ability and lower quality. Although a recently developed technology, the WBM has already proven itself to increase line efficiencies on paper machines and the converting operations. Having real-time information about defects easily available across the plant floor allows operators to make real-time decisions to improve uptime and reduce bottlenecks.

"This new technology, developed by ISRA VISION PARSYTEC, offers the paper industry an opportunity to improve performance and gain line efficiencies, in this ever-increasing competitive industry," says Hannu Ruuska, Vice President Paper Business at ISRA VISION PARSYTEC.
