Paraibuna Embalagens has commissioned Voith to supply its Quality Control System (QCS) OnQuality of scanners and sensors to the company’s new paper production line in Juiz de Fora, Brazil. Paraibuna is starting up its new PM 8 in Juiz de Fora in September 2021.
The OnQuality QCS will allow Paraibuna to meet high paper quality requirements and operational efficiency at the new packaging paper machine PM 8. 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 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. As an optimal complement to the OnQuality QCS 4.0 and as part of the Papermaking 4.0 service portfolio, Voith’s OnPerformance.Lab offers expert remote consulting, audits and troubleshooting to improve papermaking and quality control processes based on the data of the QCS.
