In accordance with the strategy of the Ilim Group in the field of digitalization, special attention was paid to the technological equipment of the machine. Voith will develop and equip the machine with an OnControl system that will provide full access to process control and data collection. The machine will be equipped with quality control scanners, sensors and cameras Web Break Analysis, which allow to monitor and record the fabric breaks online, saving data (including images) for further analysis. Among other technological features of the machine are two independent BlueLine grinding lines: for softwood and hardwood pulp. This will ensure strict adherence to the composition of pulp to achieve the highest quality products.
