Papelera Brandia SA produces machine-glazed (MG) kraft paper ranging from 24 to 140g/m2
. Their kraft paper is ideal for wrapping and packaging due to its mechanical properties. The brightness of the glazed side of the paper optimizes printability. At their customer’s request, Brandia adapts paper to end-use, providing high smoothness, wet strength, high opacity and other stock treatments depending on the application.
In 2012, Papelera Brandia started to have problems with maxi-meters tripping. These are devices used to automatically block power consumption after having reached a pre-determined limit, in order to avoid penalty payments to the local electrical utility for consuming too much energy. The maxi-meters became faulty due to old age and lack of servicing. Due to the commitment of the ABB team on site, and the confidence of the customer, Papelera Brandia explained the issue in a series of follow up meetings.
