Valmet – a global developer, and supplier of process technologies, automation, and services for the pulp, paper, and energy industries – has launched two new scanner models, Valmet IQ Scanner XL and Valmet IQ Scanner S. Both are designed for optimal production efficiency and superior performance in the paper, board, non-woven, and paper converting industries.

Intelligent scanning

The Valmet IQ Quality Control System is a customizable quality management solution that enables increased process performance while meeting quality goals. It consists of scanners, a wide range of measurements, advanced controls, and applications. From a standalone scanner to an integrated solution, the latest additions include all the features of the Valmet IQ Scanner portfolio. Robust engineering, high-quality materials, and an intelligent, flexible sensor platform are combined to deliver accurate and real-time scanning.

The new Valmet IQ Scanner XL is the largest scanner in the family, designed for extra-wide paper and board machines. The Valmet IQ Scanner S for non-woven and paper-converting applications features flexibility and reduced dimensions to fit the tight spaces of machines.

Scanners are the foundation of quality control systems. The new scanners help us meet the production efficiency and performance demands of customers. Fast edge-to-edge scanning provides data for precise quality control, while robust construction and built-in diagnostic ensure reliability,” says Marko Toskala, director, Quality Management Systems, Valmet.

Maximized reliability and performance

The Valmet IQ Scanner is compatible with the new Valmet DNA user interface. The intuitive web-based user interface provides the tools and insights operators need to leverage real-time information from Valmet IQ devices, helping them make the right decision instantly and optimize quality faster. 

Enhanced diagnostics and proactive performance management secure the availability of quality control systems. By providing early warnings of potential upsets and detailed insights for corrective actions, customers are assured of maximum uptime and optimum performance.

The Valmet IQ Scanner family is backed by a wide portfolio of onsite and remote services provided by Valmet Performance Center. All Valmet IQ products are developed and manufactured in Finland. 

Valmet has been at the forefront of developing digital solutions for its customers since the 1960s. In 1979, Valmet became the second company in the world to launch a distributed control system (DCS) for process automation, and the company’s first Quality Control System (QCS) was introduced in the 1990s. 

The Valmet IQ quality management solution consists of leading technology in all the devices and applications required to control and optimize both process performance and end-product quality. Today, the advanced Valmet IQ quality management system ensures optimal quality for over 2,200 pulp, paper, board, tissue, non-woven, and paper-converting mills around the world.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
