ABB to deliver new Ability System 800xA drives and quality control solutions to Iggesund Paperboard in Sweden

Global technology company ABB is leading a major installation of new drives, control systems and quality control solutions (QCS) for Iggesund Paperboard in Sweden, driving increased safety, higher availability and more stable operations for the board mill.

ABB will deliver a comprehensive maintenance and upgrade project in several stages during 2021, with total supplier responsibility for Iggesund's two board machines, which are part of one of the world's most advanced, fully-integrated pulp and board mills. The machines produce premium quality board for consumer and customized luxury packaging, as well as safe, durable medical packaging.

The strategy minimizes the impact on daily operations to the lowest possible downtime on each machine. ABB has created an evolution path to ensure that older Smart Platform system architecture is replaced by the latest Network Platform technology in the most straightforward, cost-efficient way.

A step-by-step electronics upgrade is underway on measuring frames as part of QCS on the two machines. Each frame will be equipped with the latest generation of ABB's moisture sensors, the High-Performance Infrared Transmission (HPIR-T). Moisture is an important quality parameter if the board is to retain its properties in subsequent product conversion steps.

Functions to enable a safer working environment for operators and other personnel, including double-channel emergency stops, a modern start warning system and safe speed monitoring of the machines, are integrated within the drive and automation solution.

To secure the future of production, ABB is supporting the modernization of 150 drive systems with the ABB Ability™ System 800xA automation and control system and frequency converters from the new ACS880 multidrive system family. ABB Ability™ System 800xA, ranked by the ARC advisory group as the world's #1 distributed control system (DCS) platform over the last 21 years.
