Stora Enso Invested in Procemex System Upgrade to Further Improve Imatra Mills’ Quality and Efficiency

Industrial PRIME | October 19, 2016

Stora Enso Imatra Mills, the largest manufacturer of liquid packaging board in the world, has introduced the upgraded Procemex web inspection and web monitoring system.

Thanks to the upgraded system, Stora Enso can better investigate the root causes of web breaks and thereby reduce the number of breaks as well as increase production efficiency.

Systems supplied by Procemex have been in use in Stora Enso’s board machine 4 (BM4) for several years already. Now, an investment was made to a system modernization that will further improve the quality of food packaging board and increase the overall efficiency of the board machine.

“Procemex was a natural choice because we were able to upgrade our previous system without the need to invest in a completely new one,” said Mr Riku Suurnäkki, Production Manager of BM4. “In principle, we obtained a completely new system simply by upgrading the existing one!”

The upgraded system features, among other things, new Procemex cameras with significantly higher resolution than before. This allows Stora Enso to classify defects more closely and better detect any dirt or impurities, resulting in a lower frequency of web breaks.
