The three Valmet IQ Moisturizers delivered to Dunapack Mosburger's corrugated line in Strasswalchen, Austria, have been successfully started up. With the new solutions, the plant will be able to improve corrugated box quality and plant performance, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Since 2012-2013, Dunapack Packaging has invested more than Euro 30 million in its Mosburger Strasswalchen production site, including a new 2.8-meter-wide corrugated line.
"Valmet's IQ quality control solutions are established on paper machines worldwide. However, it takes innovative people to adopt them in the converting and corrugated industry, too. Innovation is definitely an attitude shown by the Dunapack Mosburger team," summarizes Christian Kallich, Country Manager, Austria and Eastern Europe, Automation, Valmet.
The Valmet IQ Moisturizer profiler is used to correct all kinds of warping, decrease cracking tendency and optimize glue consumption by adding a fine and controlled water mist onto the liners with 60 mm or 120 mm resolution in a cross direction.
IQ Moisturizer's two-stage spray head contributes to a balanced and application-matched mixture of air and water. The system is used via an IQ Moisturizer operator interface and integrated into the existing process controls.
Dunapack Packaging is part of the Austrian family-owned Prinzhorn Group. Dunapack Packaging operates at 18 sites in 10 different countries and has an annual sales volume of 1.9 billion m² of corrugated board, mainly made from recycled papers.
Valmet is the leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
