Mitsubishi HiTec Paper initiates quality control system to future-proof coating machine
Coated specialty paper manufacturer Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has introduced a new quality control system to ensure production at its site in Bielefeld, Germany meets future market needs.
As part of the company’s new business development program, the new quality control system has been initiated on the CM 21 coating machine. The recently commissioned, modern Honeywell quality control system includes several measuring frames of different equipment and system peripherals for precise process control.
With this investment of around €1 million EUR ($1.1 million USD), Mitsubishi HiTec Paper stated that it will continue to focus on future, innovative markets and applications.
Kai Borenius, head of machine technology at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper, commented: ‘We will be able to combine the special coating units even better and make more efficient use of them. In doing so, we not only achieve a further increase in process quality and production flexibility, but ultimately also an optimized product quality.
‘This applies both to our traditional product areas such as thermal or inkjet papers, but especially to our new product areas such as the environmentally friendly barricote barrier papers for food packaging.’
