ABB has been contracted by Arctic Paper Grycksbo to install a new drive and automation system for its Winder 10 at its mill in Grycksbo, Sweden.
The order also includes ABB's patented Winder Performance Optimization package, which will help Arctic Paper Grycksbo achieve higher productivity with its ability to continuously adjust winder acceleration and deceleration targets - removing bottlenecks at the winder.
ABB's Ability System 800xA and ACS880 multidrive frequency converters integrated platform includes machine control, slitter positioning, a drive and control system as well as a safety solution for the entire winder, putting ABB in charge of all functions including tuning and optimizing.
The new system will integrate four solutions - winder MCS controls, slitter positioning, safety and drive controls - into one single platform, creating a user-friendly interface that provides all diagnostics in one place, enabling operators to identify and trouble-shoot issues more easily. The connection of this centralized data also means that problems can be solved immediately and remotely by ABB's winder drive specialists, without having to wait for them to travel to site.
The contract was signed in November 2020 and will be implemented in 4Q 2021/1Q 2022.
