Web Monitoring System

ABB's Web Monitoring System (WMS) is an innovative digital imaging system for optimizing process and machine performance. It effectively helps to troubleshoot operational issues, reduce cost, increase efficiency, and improve product quality. Not only does it provide papermakers with insight into their fast moving process, it also turns imaging data into actionable process intelligence for improved quality and process control.

ABB’s WMS is a digital imaging system for:

  • Optimizing process and machine performance
  • Managing sheet disturbances
  • Enhancing operator best practices 

The system helps operators to effectively troubleshoot operational issues, reduce cost, increase machine efficiency, and improve product quality. Further, not only providing operators with insight into their fast moving process, it also turn the imaging data into actionable process intelligence for use in quality and process control strategies. Image derived data provides the latest advancement in critical measurements that help drive the paper machine and operation to peak performance.

PLEASE NOTE: ABB is ending the active sale of both the Web Imaging System (WIS) and Web Monitoring System (WMS). ABB is fully committed to support the existing systems in line with our full lifecycle policy. If you have questions, please contact us ABB Pulp and Paper


Features Benefits
GigE HD cameras Using a new generation of Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) cameras, the Web Monitoring System creates crisp, high-resolution images. 
Range of illumination solutions ABB's Web Monitoring System offers a range of illumination options specifically selected for paper mill environments. This provides optimum illumination to ensure perfect image quality on the fastest machines.
Paper machine proven hardware        Range of ruggedized camera housing and illumination are proven to withstand the demanding paper machine environments protecting investment.
Modular and scalable system architecture        The modular system architecture and use of Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras simplifies the installation process lowering total installation and maintenance costs. This also provides a solid foundation to easily expand the system in the future.
Easy and intuitive interface
The Web Monitoring user interface has been designed for simplified use and to provide clear window into running conditions on the paper machine allowing take correction actions be taken at the earliest opportunity.
Configurable Video storage         System video storage is configurable which supports the use of advanced features and tools. This also provides an opportunity to replay video footage to identify abnormalities not directly related to breaks.
Advanced tools for papermakers The use of the advance tools ensures best practice validation with further improved asset performance and efficiency.
Cyber Security Fully compliant with ABB’s stringent Cyber Security requirements. 
Integration with ABB Web Imaging System ABB's Web Imaging System can be fully integrated with WMS.  Using a consistent interface, operators can view and analyze defects, as well as synchronize video from upstream sheet break cameras.
Lifecycle management The Web Monitoring System comes with a full lifecycle management plan, ensuring that you receive optimum performance and excellent service response throughout the lifetime of your equipment. ABB also provides support while your mill makes the shift to new technology at the end of a lifecycle.
