JK Paper has awarded a contract to Metso for supply and start up of Metso Paper Lab, paper and board quality analyser, for automatic testing of paper properties at its Rayagada paper mill.
Metso to supply automated paper lab to JK Paper India
Mumbai/India – With Metso Paper Lab all quality parameters like Tensile, TSO, Formation, ISO Brightness, Roughness, Porosity, Basis Weight and Caliper can be tested within a matter of few minutes, company speakers explain. Faster measurements of quality will help the mill to take immediate remedial actions and thus help to reduce rejects and improve end product quality. Overall efficiency of the machine will be enhanced.
According to the Chief Executive (New Projects) at JK Paper, Ashish De, the advanced Paper Lab was chosen above conventional laboratory equipment to meet the challenges posed by the high machine speed, scarcity of trained manpower for routine lab testing and last but not least, JK Paper's continuous pursuit of best technologies.
A team from JK Paper visited Tamil Nadu Newsprint & Papers' mill to study the feasibility, runnability and performance of Metso Paper Lab. The satisfaction expressed by the team over system performance and feedback from TNPL on service support were important factors in the purchase decision. The long history of successful Paper Lab installations worldwide and important features like compact design, safety features and ease of use, backed by strong service support in India were also key factors in the decision.
