DS Smith Kemsley Mill has introduced the Trimble data analysis system Wedge in its United Kingdom paper mill. The mill has an annual production capacity in excess of 800,000 tonnes and is the second biggest recovered fibre-based paper operation in Europe. Kemsley Mill produces a range of 100% recycled paper grades which are used to make packaging products.
Wedge is fast online process diagnostics system. It enables huge amount of process data from different sources for analysis and diagnosis of the root cause of different disturbances in the process.
Trimble Forestry is participating in PulPaper / PacTec / Wood & Bioenergy event in Messukeskus Helsinki on May 29 –31st. Our team is presenting the Wedge a process diagnostics tool and Connected Forest, a consept for the forestry entire supply chain from the forest for finished products.
6H50 at the Messukeskus!
Paper mill Wattens is the fourth Delfort mill to engage leveraging Wedge Process Diagnostics System. The system delivery will commence in June.
Delfort is an Austrian paper maker group dedicating to highly specialized grades. With mills in Europe, The United States and Vietnam, Delfort is a global leader in its product categories.
Trimble Forestry’s Wedge Process Diagnostics is a powerful, easy to use tool for improving industrial plant efficiency. Wedge anticipates upcoming problems and quickly finds the original root causes.
South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences and Trimble Forestry are starting educational project together. The students learn how to use Process Diagnostics System Wedge and how to analyze different process hick ups.
Jarkko Männynsalo a head of biotechnology studies at XAMK tells that the students of process technology are always exited to use real tools and have real process data from the mill. Simulations are also popular. Process and paper industry has suffered a loss of students due to a poor job propects in the past. Now future looks brighter.
-We have made cooperation with Andritz, they have given us their valuable time teaching about remote accessing in the mill. In those studies we had first encounter with Wedge, says Männynsalo.
For Trimble Forestry the cooperation with XAMK is important. Vice President of Sales Matti Häkkinen says that industry needs new talent.
-We are more than happy to give our time to educate students about Process Diagnostics System. We are going to install Wedge to campus and ask our clients to give some real process data for school assignments.
South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences is a strong implementer of research, development and innovation activities. They cooperate with national companies and organizations, universities and research centers.
Trimble Forestry is participating in one of the biggest pulp and paper industry events of the year in Charlotte, NC, USA. PaperCon 2018 will offer technical sessions that provides tangible takeaways to solve many technical challenges.
Trimble Forestry will be showcasing WEDGE™ – a powerful, data analytics and diagnostics software toolbox that enables manufacturing operations to reduce process variability and avoid run-to-failure events by simplifying and reinforcing continuous process improvement and optimal operational benchmarking and settings.
PaperCon 2018 will be held on April 15-18, 2018 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, USA. Our booth number is 123, please come and meet us there!
