CHALLENGE
  • Too much Basis Weight variability
  • Noisy, thick stock difficult for existing meters to measure
  • Excessive damping required to provide stable flow signal, but slow response resulted in erratic control and even higher variability
  • High variability forced mill to run at higher weight target to meet basis weight requirements
