“Our mission at Dunapack Packaging is to provide high quality and innovative packaging solutions, and we are constantly searching for development ideas and new technologies. Finding a reliable business partner with a proven portfolio in the field of process control automation was extremely important for us. We are confident that the reliability and capabilities of Valmet’s process control system will help us achieve our ambitious targets,” says Ivo Basmadzhiev, Quality specialist at Dunapack Packaging Plovdiv.
“We are very happy to deliver our latest Valmet IQ technology for corrugators at the Dunapack Packaging Plovdiv plant to support the customer in reducing the warp and decreasing their moisture variations. This is the first order within the Dunapack group for our corrugator quality controls,” says Udo Schober, Sales manager, Automation Systems business line, Valmet.
Technical information about the delivery
Delivery includes a Valmet IQ moisturizer which is the industry’s most advanced moisturizing system and a Valmet IQ warp control system to automatically control corrugated board flatness. Corrugator quality controls are becoming more and more important, as boxes are being made out of a lighter-weighted board, production speeds are increasing, and production batches are smaller bringing more grade changes to the corrugator. The Valmet IQ quality control system will eliminate moisture and temperature variations by online measurements and close-loop controls in all kinds of process situations.
