Valmet invests in roll service center

Finland’s Valmet says it is improving work safety and ensuring high-quality roll cover production with state-of-theart equipment for polyurethane and composite coverings at its plant in Jyväskylä. The investment was completed at the end of 2017.

The project also prepares Valmet for stricter environmental regulations because the new equipment increases the sustainability of operations in terms of less waste, better energy efficiency and cost savings. As well, the production process becomes more flexible allowing for shorter lead times.

Valmet has also established a Performance Center in Jyväskylä to provide roll-related on-demand expert support, remote analytics, monitoring and optimization, as well as data discovery and analytics. Valmet has three other European roll service centres: in Sweden, France and the UK.
