Senior Management Symposium
New Era for Paper Making with Advance Technology Compliance with an Industrial Internet

Paper and board producers are committed in creating innovative and sustainable end product solutions that allow brands to connect with consumers all around the world. Lightweighting is one of the fastest growing trends especially in the board making business. Lightweighting means that at least the same end-product quality can be produced with less raw materials. In practice, a 10% saving on raw material means that 10 out of 100 trees are left growing in the forest and 10% less trucks and energy are needed. Or, an average mill can produce 700 million milk cartons more per year from the same amount of raw materials.

Valmet’s Industrial Internet applications and services are built to improve the reliability and performance of the processes. Asset reliability optimization includes online monitoring, predictive diagnostics, and data analysis to improve mill and plant efficiency, to help to plan timely maintenance, and to prevent unplanned shutdowns.

Operations performance optimization concentrates on integrating data from different systems together with production data to optimize mill and plant operations.
