ABB Wins Automation System Order from Minfeng Special Paper Co.

March 29, 2012 - ABB said that it has signed a contract with Minfeng Special Paper Company (Minfeng) in China to supply a fully integrated automation system for Minfeng's paper production line that produces glassine paper.

The value of the contract was not disclosed.

According to ABB, the new automation system is designed to help the production line achieve full process control — from pulp production to finished rolls of paper, along with enhanced quality control.

"Compared to systems that are not integrated, fully integrated automation systems have simplified design, an excellent degree of visualization and outstanding level of intelligence, and provide engineers with added convenience during operation while helping enterprises to significantly cut manpower and equipment maintenance costs," said Lin ShuMing, head of ABB Pulp & Paper in North Asia.
