Rockwell Automation supplies drives and controls to SCA Tissue
Rockwell Automation will supply PowerFlex 700S drives, ControlLogix master control and Rockwell Automation Premier System Human Machine Interface utilizing PanelView 1500 drop-in panels with RSView graphics. TeamSupport 360 continuous live monitoring will be provided by the Rockwell Automation Cleveland, Ohio command center. The project also includes Quality Control and DCS Systems by Voith Paper Automation utilizing Rockwell Automations ControlLogix equipment.
We chose the combination of Voith Paper Automation and Rockwell Automation because we felt their equipment and technology was the best currently available in terms of accuracy, an intuitive operator interface, and the ability to self-maintain, stated Mark Phiscator, director of engineering and technology, SCA Tissue. Furthermore, Voith Papers business is paper, so there are a lot of synergies and embedded technologies available." The SCA Tissue Barton mill currently manufactures 100,000 tons of tissue each year. With the new machine, annual production is expected to increase to 170,000 tons. Start-up of the new machine is planned for late summer of 2008.
