In paper machines, almost all rolls and cylinders need doctoring. The purpose of the doctoring process is to shed the sheet at sheet breaks, to perform sheet threading, and to remove excess water and contaminants from the roll surface. Key elements to an optimal doctoring process is use of suitable doctoring equipment and optimal doctoring parameters.
Designed by ED Design, the Valmet Blade Angle BA4 inclinometer is used for setting up an optimal doctor blade angle. It is ergonomically designed for quick and reliable measurements.
Due to limited production volumes, an existing enclosure was selected as a starting point for industrial design. It was then customized for an optimal user experience. This approach enabled an inexpensive solution which fulfills all quality requirements for the product. Product development costs were also optimized.
