Heavy Machinery

Acellent’s patented sensor layers are used in heavy machinery applications such as paper manufacturing to provide ease of installation and use during operations. For example, Acellent’s sensors installed on Valmet's iRoll can monitor a covered roll in paper, board, pulp, or tissue production machines, expanding the roll’s primary function to include the sensor layers as a transducer for sensing cross-machine nip linear load or sheet properties such as the tension and parent roll hardness profile. Acellent’s sensor create a complete, redundant network suitable for iRoll’s high reliability in the paper manufacturing environment.
