Valmet and Fabio Perini start Industrial Internet ecosystem partnership to provide digital solutions for tissue production and converting

Valmet and Fabio Perini have established an Industrial Internet ecosystem partnership to strengthen collaboration in the tissue industry.

The target is to allow tissue producers and converters to work together more efficiently, and to exchange knowledge and resources for the benefit of their customers.

The partnership combines Valmet's comprehensive tissue making technology and process optimization know-how with Fabio Perini’s strong expertise in complete solutions for converting and packaging machines as well as in the converting process and technology.

The two companies’ solid expertise combined with data from tissue mills and converting plants will provide a new dimension to tissue mill optimization.

The collaboration aims at providing an unbroken chain of production data from the tissue machine to the converting line and utilizing artificial intelligence-driven applications in the tissue production process to make the converting operations downstream more efficient. This will bring significant mill-level quality and efficiency improvements for tissue producers and converters.

Jari Almi, Vice President, Industrial Internet, Valmet, said:

“Starting from customer needs, Valmet and Fabio Perini are now taking the first steps to develop solutions where innovation goes beyond company borders, covering both tissue production and converting processes. Through collaboration with our common customers we can provide new digital solutions and services to help move tissue mills’ performance forward".

Oswaldo Cruz Junior, CEO of Körber's Business Area Tissue, commented:

“We believe an open innovation model is a key concept through which companies within tissue business can create different partnerships to make their innovation process more efficient, as well as exchange knowledge and resources. By combining the strengths of our companies, we can facilitate broad innovation and fast adaptation, enable new business and service models and help improve the profitability of companies in the tissue business".

Both Valmet and Fabio Perini have a long history in offering measurement and optimization applications for tissue production. These reliable measurements have provided proven results for their customers.
