June 23, 2021 - Valmet will supply two OptiConcept M containerboard machines with extensive packages of automation, services and industrial internet applications to Zhejiang Shanying Paper in Jiaxing City, Zhejiang province, China.
The new containerboard machines, PM 16 and PM 17, continue the expansion of Zhejiang Shanying Paper's business in Zhejiang area.
The deliveries at Jiaxing Mill will be Valmet's 11th and 12th OptiConcept M containerboard machine deliveries to Zhejiang Shanying Paper. The 10 earlier machines were or will be delivered to customer's different mill sites.
"Our cooperation with Valmet has been excellent, and it is based on mutual trust," said Wu Ming Wu, Chairman and CEO of Shanying International. "We are really happy about the already started-up machine lines of Huazhong PM 21 and PM 23. This was a decisive factor when we were choosing the supplier for PM 16 and PM 17."
Valmet's delivery for both machines will include a high-speed, multi-layer containerboard machine from broke collection to a reel and winders. The delivery will also include board machine process ventilation systems. A wide automation package includes Valmet DNA automation system for process and machine controls as well as runnability and condition monitoring and Valmet IQ quality management system.

For a period of two years, the start-up and the further optimization of PM 16 will be supported remotely from Valmet Performance Center. Valmet Industrial Internet solutions will help the optimizing of raw material and quality and help the operator to optimize the use of fabrics. They can also be used to predict and avoid production losses and increase the machine reliability, and with a solution called Dynamic Centerline Advisor, the operator can find the optimal setpoint and running conditions for processes. Virtual Mill, which can be used e.g. for personnel training, consists of full digital design twin of the board machine.
