Simka Kagit Sanayi VE Ticaret AS, a Turkish manufacturer of various converted paper and paperboard products, has commissioned Voith to supply its OnQuality Quality Control System (QCS) of scanners and sensors to the company’s PM 1 in Kayseri, Turkey.
The upgrade comprises the newest generation of scanners and sensors of Voith’s OnQuality QCS, the modular automation platform ComCore as well as a multi-year service agreement for the whole scope of supply. The new system will replace a former generation of Voith’s QCS that has been reliably operating since 2007.
The OnQuality QCS will allow Simka Kagit to meet high paper quality requirements and to achieve an increased operational efficiency at PM 1, where Simka Kagit produces a large spectrum of different grades, ranging from corrugated medium to base paper for packaging. The QCS ordered is characterized by smart and modular functions. The attractive lifecycle costs improve the competitiveness of production through higher reliability and lower maintenance expenditure. The OnQuality.Sensors ordered by Simka Kagit will control and optimize important quality parameters including basis weight and moisture. All sensors include a smart sensor and comprehensive diagnostic functions, and provide easy access for maintenance and system extension. They are compact, robust and feature state-of-the-art technology.
As part of Voith’s Papermaking 4.0 portfolio, the new OnQuality QCS 4.0 features enable papermakers to seamlessly integrate with the OnCumulus cloud platform, preparing the ground for paper mill digitalization. In addition, the OnQuality QCS 4.0 allows to overcome the boundaries of physical sensors by providing several virtual sensor applications.
