    Increased system complexity, reduced personnel, and tighter operating margins have made a AC or DC drive-system trending HMI not just a possibility, but a necessity in today's paper mill. Each new paper machine, coater, supercalender, or winder drive system should be installed with a modern user-friendly HMI. Existing analog and digital drive systems can be retrofitted with an HMI. This HMI should... View full abstract»

  • Synchronous versus induction motors: plant efficiency benefits resulting from the use of synchronous motors

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):61 - 70
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2353 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Induction motors are often the choice for various industrial production processes. Use of an induction motor, however, will result in increased lagging power-factor burdens in the plant. This burden often must be corrected by adding capacitors. If not, the result is the penalty of larger kilovoltampere burdens to the interconnected system. The synchronous machine, with the aid of an intelligent ex... View full abstract»

    This article describes a series of methods to detect thickness defects in DWI tinplate. These methods provide information to identify the origin of the defects, allowing fast corrections and, therefore, improving mill performance. In this approach, an adapted thickness signal is spatially sampled from the input stages of the mill's last X-ray gauge. The system is also able to detect other problems... View full abstract»
