The system was accepted by the mill and taken into production use in August. In 2017, Valmet supplied an identical system for the mill’s PM 10.
“Having two systems of the same kind makes operation, upkeep and maintenance easier for the mill. Additionally, as Valmet has a local service center nearby, the mill has easy access to service support,” says Aki Torvinen, Business Manager, Machine Vision, Automation, Valmet.
