Web Imaging System measures how fibers and fillers are distributed in the paper sheet to determine uniformity for the full web
Aiming to redefine the standard of measurement accuracy, our patent-pending Full Sheet Formation Analysis feature offers deeper and more precise analysis of formation, helping papermakers better optimize established paper properties to achieve higher quality goals.
Effective complete measurement in real-time avoids downtime
While traditional measurement techniques only look at a small portion of the web and may not reveal the floc sizes or shapes, ABB’s full sheet solution leverages proprietary methods, processing parallelism, and the flexibility of the FPGA (field-programmable gate array) based smart camera platform to reveal and classify paper formation floc sizes and shapes. This greatly improves the ability to determine the uniformity of paper formation, while removing the possibility of misleading results.
