ABB helping make better paper tissue

ABB Industrial Systems integrated automation system will control a new paper mill being built by AM Paper Group in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, U.K. The mill will be the first to use Beloit's "Through Air Drying" (TAD) technology, to produce thicker, softer, more absorbent household tissue.

ABB Industrial Systems integrated automation system will control a new paper mill being built by AM Paper Group in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, U.K. The mill will be the first to use Beloit's "Through Air Drying" (TAD) technology, to produce thicker, softer, more absorbent household tissue. The system will control the mill from stock preparation and pulping to paper machine production and drive systems. The firm's Advant OCS will provide the platform for integrating paper machine control, including all high-speed machine logic, while an AccuRay 1190 quality control system will provide CD moisture and CD weight control. Specially engineered for pulp and paper applications, a new ABB PM Concept 200 distributed sectional drive system will be integrated with the Advant OCS to operate 15 drive sections.
