Papelera de la Alqueria Secures its Market Position with New Automation System

(PRZOOM - Press & Newswire) —  Heidenheim, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany, 2009-08-06 - Voith Paper Automation received an order from Papelera de la Alqueria in Spain


Voith Paper Automation received an order from Papelera de la Alqueria in Spain. The manufacturer of testliner and corrugated medium, which is used for corrugated containers, invested in a comprehensive new automation system to improve the quality of the end product and in the same time to reduce operating costs. The PM 1 with its wire width of 3,240 mm and its maximum speed above 750 m/min produces 100,000 tons of paper annually. The raw material is 100% recycled.

The new automation solution delivered by Voith Paper Automation has a uniform visualization for all systems and integrates the DCS and QCS applications on one single platform. Two Voith LSC scanners are part of the scope of supply, too. The scanner in front of the reeler will be equipped with a basis weight, moisture and traversing color sensors, whereas the scanner before the size press will have a moisture sensor. In combination with OnQ GradeControl, the model-based MD control, a fully integrated color control will be installed to manage up to 20 different dyes. Besides that Papelera de la Alqueria relies on the technical possibilities of the OnQ Profilmatic control software and the thousandfold used OnQ ModuleStep actuators for CD basis weight control at the headbox.

Javier Bernabeu, managing director of Papelera de la Alqueria, commentated the investment as follows: "We invest into our plants despite the world-wide difficult economic market situation, in order to be able to produce more cost-efficiently and secure with it our market position.“ The Spanish paper producer is sure that Voith Paper Automation is the right partner for this project, because its products are enormously reliable and have therefore the lowest costs of ownership. "By this modernization and enhancement we ensure a cost-efficient operation of the PM 1.", Bernabeu underlined.

The paper mill Papelera de la Alqueria has a paper machine and several converting plants to manufacture corrugated board, among other products.
