Summary

Summary: 
A Polish manufacturer of process equipment, machines and production lines is offering an automatic paper weight measuring system for paper production lines that can be used to streamline the quality control process in laminate and impregnated paper production industry. The machine has a considerable potential to be applied also in other branches. Commercial agreement with technical assistance will be considered. Target partners: manufacturing companies.

Description

Description: 

This Polish company is a manufacturer of process equipment, machines and production lines. They develop customised niche machinery and equipment made for clients in various manufacturing industries. The offered solutions are environmentally friendly and based on innovative technologies, often introduced as a result of proprietary research and development work.

One of the latest products in their portfolio is an automatic paper weight measuring system for paper production lines. It has been designed specifically for the quality control of impregnated paper, where production process is continuous and control conditions are specified in detail.

The machine is composed of a sample cutting unit, sample handling system, measuring system including a 6-axis industrial robot, calculating system and display, drying oven and precise scales.

The quality control process consists in cutting three round samples in the moving paper sheet, without shearing the material. Next, samples are transferred to the automatic resin content measuring unit. Measurement is performed after oven-drying.

This technology has been developed to control the production process of paper impregnated with phenol-formaldehyde or melamine-formaldehyde resins but it can also be adopted in any similar production lines to automate and streamline quality control process.

Commercial agreement with technical assistance is offered to manufacturing companies, especially in the paper industry or branches where paper laminates are used.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
Major advantages of the offered technology include: • impregnated paper quality control with on-line sample cutting, • eliminating the need to involve line personnel to perform quality testing, • reducing the amount of material with low processing parameters. This innovative solution will allow building competitive advatage and fulfil the current needs and demands of clients in the impregnated paper and laminate production industry. This machine has a great development potential and could also be applied in other industries where quality control of large format materials can be automated to streamline the whole production process.
