Tasowheel Systems receives repeat order to refurbish slice control automation at Holmen Iggesunds paperboard mill

The company received a major order from the Iggesund Mill in Sweden for refurbishing two more headbox slice control systems for headboxes 1 and 4 on KM1. Headboxes 2 and 3 were refurbished by Tasowheel in 2020.

Tasowheel Systems will supply slice control automation technology to machine KM1, headboxes 1 and 4, at Holmen Iggesunds mill in Sweden. The delivery includes 2 x 29 new, motorized slice control actuators and the related equipment. The new actuators will replace the current, also Tasowheel made, ca. 20 years old actuators. Tasowheel will tailor the new actuators to be mechanically fully compatible and install them as a “drop-in” replacement solution. The start-up is scheduled for week 38.

“We are modernizing our quality control equipment on machine KM1 to continue keeping high availability and quality on our board production. It was a tight time plan for the modernization last year and it will be the same this year, but we have a competent project team, so we are confident that history will repeat itself”, says Peder Hägglund, Technical, Project and IT Manager.

“Last year, we made a successful project on headbox 2 and 3 together with the Iggesund project team. This repeat order was a great expression of trust and satisfaction for our work. We look forward to continuing the same success on this project”, says Jukka Ahlstedt, Sales Manager of Tasowheel Systems.
