DIFFERENT CHALLENGES SOLVED BY DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS
The paper and pulp industry uses wood or old paper as raw material and produce mainly pulp, paper and board. While each end product is unique and is characterized by its moisture level and weight. All paper machines are quite similar and processes are driven by electricity and heat. The first challenge is probably one for many industries, it is the electricity consumption.
A second typical challenge in the paper and pulp industry is the heat consumption in the form of steam, since steam drums are used to dry the paper towards its required level. The large amount of steam used in the production implies also an advantages, because it will be possible to use steam turbines that also produce electricity. Another very known challenge for paper manufacturers is the behavior of the moisture measurement after break. In many situations the measurement device isn't able to measure the correct moisture level which results in wrong control actions.
At Yazzoom we know about these and other challenges. Therefore, we provide specific solutions to the needs of our customers. Due to our background in process control, vision systems and data analytics, we are able to solve a broad range of challenges faced by the paper & pulp industry. Moreover Yazzoom has an extensive knowledge in the production of paper, which means that the preliminary study time is limited and that value is generated immediately.
