360°Rolls – up with performance, down with costs
Rolls account for as much as 60% of the value of a paper machine, and their performance has a crucial impact on paper quality and production efficiency. However, when seeking to optimize profitability and quality, it is not enough to simply improve the performance of the rolls themselves. The processes that surround the rolls are also of crucial importance. With a 360° view of rolls and their environment, Metso can help its customers achieve all-round results.
360°Rolls is Metso’s approach to monitoring the entire roll environment. For example, we focus on how the fabrics, roll covers, and doctor blades perform together in the process. Working closely with our customers, we find the right solution for specific needs, which ensures maximum performance levels while minimizing costs.
