“Wood-based fashion that’s not only attractive – but also sets ecological trends.”
The transition from pulp and paper industry to fiber industry progresses – and thus the development to a sustainable bio-economy. Our digitalization solutions support the industry in this.
The pulp and paper industry is turning into the fiber industry
A large number of products are already being manufactured on the basis of fiber-based raw materials. This trend is accelerating and confronting industry with a transition to a sustainable, bio-economy. In the future, more and more textiles and other materials will be produced from fibers and lignin. It is no surprise that the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) has heralded in the age of fiber.
We developed future-oriented solutions to support industries over the long term during this transition. These are based on the integrated SIPAPER portfolio, which enable our customers to achieve added value over the entire lifecycle. Convince yourself!
The SIPAPER APL family is based on SIMATIC PCS 7 and, therefore, on the world automation standard for the fiber industry. The integrated software solution for model-based process control and regulation is tailored to the pulp and paper industry and increases production quality, cost-effectiveness and environmental compatibility. SIPAPER APL and COMOS Process & Automation use a joint database for integrated process and automation technology.
SIPAPER DCS APL with SIMIT facilitates increased engineering quality as well as fast commissioning and ramp-up by means of a flexible and simple simulation design.
Take advantage of benefits such as:
Perfectly coordinated drive systems – SIPAPER drive systems - and specially developed automation and process control systems – SIPAPER process automation – are ready for digitalization in the fiber industry. What does that mean specifically? It means you can simulate your system as a virtual twin on the basis of a consistently uniform data model throughout all phases of the project, before commissioning. This means risk-free optimization, development, and even duplication if necessary. It is possible to intervene directly in the process from a control room while it is happening – for example, by a detailed reading of the drive chain with the help of drive chain analytics as part of the SIPAPER drive system. Together with consistent process automation, this simplifies engineering, reduces time-to-market and increases flexibility and efficiency.
With our solutions we facilitate success around the world in the pulp and paper industry and support you on the way to a forest fiber business. Find out how it works.
The Albert Friedrich AG paper factory uses the SIPAPER industry concept for its new PM7 toilet tissue line.
The solution is precisely tailored to the paper industry.
It includes highly efficient drive systems, automation and process management systems, intelligent energy distribution and services.
With extensive investment and the latest technology, Stora Enso is safeguarding the future of its pulp and paper production at its Skoghall site.
Latest PCS 7 version flexibility also plays an important role, as the process control system can be programmed to enable easy integration even of existing system components from external suppliers.
After the modernization, the company is now profiting from high capacity, efficiency and quality.
With the construction of PM2 Europe's most modern and largest kraft paper machine was commissioned in Pöls, Austria.
It now produces 80,000 tons of kraft paper each year.
The multi-motor concept of the paper machine was implemented on the basis of the SIPAPER drive standards with SINAMICS S120 converters.
