L&W Autoline Thickness
L&W Autoline Thickness gives precise and exact thickness measurements of paper and board. By providing reliable and accurate information for process optimization, mills can better control manufacturing parameters to produce a superior quality product.
L&W Autoline Thickness is often combined with L&W Autoline TSO in the same module, since controlling a paper machine involves seeing the elastic properties of the paper in addition to basic control parameters (grammage, moisture, etc). This makes accurate prediction of bending stiffness possible.
Thinks to keep in mind by grade:
- Board: high bulk is needed for high bending stiffness (high thickness = high bulk)
- Printing papers: Consistent thickness is needed for runnability in high speed printers
- Liner: Low thickness means low bulk, which means high compression strength
