To complement the quality management control concept for self-adhesive laminates, Valmet (stand 5D51) has developed a new scanner to suit the converting machine structure. The new Valmet IQ converting scanner can be easily located into different process locations due to its innovative sensor support technology. The new one-sided scanner enables the direct adhesive and silicone as well as moisture measurements to be installed in the optimum process location from quality and performance point of view.
The Valmet IQ silicone and adhesive measurement is designed especially for demanding paper and self-adhesive laminating applications to measure silicone coated release liners. Measurements are mounted on the converting scanner to provide continuous cross direction measurement profiles of the silicone and adhesive coat weight.
The new scanner with online measurements enables the utilization of machine and cross direction controls for moisture, adhesive and silicone in converting machines. These control solutions improve and stabilize the end-product quality, decrease the amount of broke and allow the operators to concentrate on quality management and production optimization.
Combined with Valmet IQ moisturizer for curl control and Valmet IQ process and quality vision, Valmet can now provide complete quality management solution for self-adhesive laminate processes.
