Pulp and Paper Manufacturing

Pulp and paper manufacturers have an essential role in today’s economy, turning materials such as wood and recycled paper into the many cellulose-based products we rely on, such as paper, labels, and packaging. Converting, where paper is transformed into other products, is an area where automated production monitoring is particularly impactful. Many of the pulp and paper companies who benefit from utilizing the Vorne XL production monitoring system are converters, monitoring processes in which large rolls of material are turned into a broad range of finished goods (e.g., sheeted paper, filters, wet wipe packs, cardboard packaging, etc.).

Whether maintaining precise process speeds, reducing roll changeover and splicing times, or reducing scrap and trim, automated solutions such as Vorne XL provide a clear picture of production, accurately quantifying all sources of lost production time, and establishing a comprehensive data foundation for continuous improvement.

XL moves pulp and paper operations far beyond manual data capture to gain critical insights for driving process improvement and effectuating change with 100+ metrics and 20+ data dimensions including OEE, Six Big Losses, TEEP, and Labor Efficiency.

Other benefits of XL that our customers love include no software to install, no servers to maintain, no recurring fees, and no contracts. Instead you get unlimited users, free technical support, a 3-year warranty, and free software updates. All in an inexpensive, off-the-shelf product.

Monitor your converting lines, rotary cutters or die cutters, and a variety of other equipment with one solution, quickly seeing benefits such as:

  1. 1
    Understand Changeover Variance Changing master rolls and splicing material is often a major loss of production time for pulp and paper manufacturers. Vorne XL provides accurate analysis of your changeover events, offering insights that help you set ambitious but attainable target times.
  2. 2
    Maintain Target Run Rates Utilize the real-time plant floor scoreboard and browser-based web interface to monitor current or historical run rates and speeds, ensuring the process is running optimally and meeting customer demand.
  3. 3
    Historical Part Run Data Reducing variance between shifts in operating the line is critical to manufacturing efficiently and effectively. Use historical part and shift data to develop best practices and to tailor specific training and corrective actions.
  4. 4
    Automated Enterprise Reporting XL enables you to automatically generate and send production reports for individual lines and for data that is aggregated across your entire plant - or even multiple plants. Stay informed with timely reports that place the appropriate data into the hands of the right people at the exact time they need it.
  5. 5
    Operator Comments Empower your operators or maintenance staff to record additional comments on events such as changeovers, downtime, or part runs, contributing to more robust reporting. Share any information that is useful for shift handoffs or process improvement over time.
