The cost pressures, increased quality requirements, environmental regulations, lower margins, and intense competition in the fiber industry call for intelligent solutions in the area of automation. Our custom-built SIPAPER automation solutions are key to meeting these market challenges. They provide maximum data transparency throughout the entire production process as well as systematic quality assurance and simple operation. What’s more, they're the very foundation for the digital enterprise – for a faster, more flexible, and more intelligent production despite the rapidly changing paper market.
The seamless integration of individual products is the special strength of the SIPAPER family: for example, when it comes to optimizing process automation and monitoring and improving the quality of the products. With QCS APL, APC, DCS APL, and IT MIS, SIPAPER provides you with solutions that are a perfect fit for your company.
From quality management and process control to process automation and linking automation with business systems, with SIPAPER automation solutions you'll improve the quality of your pulp and paper products while also optimizing your process efficiency and productivity. SIPAPER QCS APL allows systematic quality assurance directly at your paper machine. With SIPAPER APC, you'll benefit from a model-based open- and closed-loop control of your processes. SIPAPER DCS APL offers you an integrated automation system from the field to the ERP level. And SIPAPER IT MIS gives you a transparent overview of your production process in real time, making your business decisions much easier. And with SIPAPER automation solutions, you'll create a consistent data flow that you can turn into higher plant availability and lower operation and maintenance costs.
SIPAPER automation systems are ready for digitalization. You can simulate a virtual twin of your plant based on a consistent uniform data model, throughout all project phases, even before commissioning. This allows you to optimize, refine, and even duplicate as needed with no risk. What’s more: SIPAPER DCS APL with SIMIT simulation software increases engineering quality and accelerates commissioning and the start-up phase thanks to flexible design simulation. Quality parameters are achieved faster after start-up or a change of grade. Optimized process management also ensures lasting product improvement and helps homogenize the fibrous material.
End-to-end quality management with transparent monitoring and control systems forms the basis of all modern paper production. SIPAPER QCS APL (QCS = quality control system) offers you exactly what you need. Quality-relevant measurement data from the paper machines is continuously recorded via a reliable PROFIBUS/Ethernet connection and adjustments are made by activating the correct regulator control elements. That means you can minimize variations in quality quickly and efficiently and at the same time continuously optimize the paper quality. SIPAPER QCS APL is integrated in the overall process along with SIPAPER DCS APL.
· Systematic quality assurance integrated in the SIPAPER family directly at the paper machine
· Integration in standard automation systems on the basis of SIMATIC PCS 7
· Rapid elimination of variations in quality
· Not a black-box philosophy
· Simplified, fast change of grade for higher output
To manufacture high-quality products while keeping costs for raw materials, energy, and process material to a minimum, an optimized process management across the entire operation of paper production is needed. SIPAPER APC (advanced process control) offers you an integrated software solution for model-based open- and closed-loop process management and control – tailored to the fiber industry and customized to your plant conditions.
SIPAPER APC uses libraries and modules proven in industrial applications: for example, for optimization, neural networks, and robust control. The solution can be ideally integrated in plants with SIPAPER DCS but can also be linked to other existing process control systems.
· Process optimization through cost-optimized operating points in all units
· Increased quality and homogenization of the fibrous material
· Lasting improvements to the process and greater environmental compatibility
· Proven components, optimal availability
