Paper mills continue to focus on increasing uptime and operating speed. This is to increase profits and meet their customer demands. Increased uptime also helps offset the need for skilled maintenance personnel as baby boomers retire and budgets shrink.

Digitalisation and smart handling of data give opportunities for more efficient mills with more stable processes and an even quality. Holmen has therefore bought the latest version of ExtractEye from PulpEye to their mills and is now in the implementation phase. This means that Holmen mills are actively taking steps towards Industry 4.0.
