A paper mill’s production efficiency is determined by its machine downtime. Each stand-still moment is deducted from production as lost time and can never be regained. Web breaks are one of the most annoying reasons for production shutdowns. The faster the problem is identified and fixed, the higher the mill’s productivity.
The main challenge during a downtime is identification of the problem. It calls for exceptional camera technology that can match the speed of the latest machines. The cameras must be capable of imaging the paper web under highly demanding circumstances. In addition, the equipment must remain functional 24 hours a day, year after year.
Honeywell combines latest technology with process knowledge to help you reduce downtime and raise your production efficiency. Our Web Monitoring Systems help you detect and visualize the causes of breaks like trim squirt dirt build-up, slime spots, dirty felts and wires etc. The camera’s film precisely identifies the problem and helps the operator quickly find the reasons for the process disturbances.
