Papertech is the leading machine vision system supplier for tissue, paper, board and pulp production lines. There are now over 1.500 installations in 43 countries. Since its acquisition by the IBS Paper Performance Group in 2016, PAPERTECH has embarked on a journey of innovation, leveraging the extensive expertise and resources available. Its expertise extends beyond machine vision applications to provide cutting-edge solutions tailored to meet specific requirements.

Traditionally, tissue machine operations focused on metrics like basis weight and moisture, often overlooking the crucial impact of runnability on downstream converting processes. Tissue web defects such as holes, dirt, edge cuts and creases pose challenges to converting line performance, leading to breaks and decreased Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). Papertech’s tissue solutions take a proactive stance in addressing these challenges. It features tools to identify various defects, trace their root causes and promptly enhance machine OEE. Additionally, it ensures overall product quality through features like online embossing and print quality measurement.

WebVision® WMS utilizes high-speed cameras and advanced software to monitor the sheet at critical locations throughout the tissue machine and converting process. Deployed in hundreds of installations, it swiftly identifies issues such as web breaks and defects, enhancing efficiency and product quality from forming to slitter winder stages, empowering manufacturers to compete effectively.

WebInspector® WIS 100% examines the entire web for various quality issues and leads innovation in tissue making with its AI-based web inspection technology. Through neural networks, it achieves precise defect segmentation, ensuring exceptional product quality. Furthermore, during the converting process, QualityVision evaluates embossing and print quality, thereby enhancing line efficiency and product quality. Embossing quality can also be measured offline with our EmbossingAnalyzer.

Recently Papertech presented iSTOP+™, the industry’s first non-marking slow/stop-on-defect winder automation solution. This revolutionary product eliminates the need for ink or lasers, effectively tackling critical defects while storing customer roll map data for future processing.
Its versatility across various applications including winder, calendar and off-line-coater, coupled with the capability for manual or automatic stopping at any position, delivers unparalleled control and efficiency.
