Voith’s new Q-Fit solution offers fabric diagnostics on paper machines

São Paulo, Brazil - A full-line supplier to the paper market, Voith recently launched Q-Fit, a solution designed to assess forming fabric conditions on operating paper machines. The system is currently operating on fabric running on a paper machine in Brazil operating at a speed of 684 metres per minute. The inspection allowed the customer to determine the best moment to replace the forming fabric, and therefore maximize its service life safely.

Q-Fit enables customers to appraise the wear conditions of their forming fabrics under any machine speed. Voith’s Q-Fit solution includes the ability to image capture, under high machines speeds, in dark environments and in areas of limited access plus it provides superior image sharpness for in-depth fabric assessment. Mobile solution enables Voith expert team to analyze fabric conditions and report effective real-time diagnostics in one single visit.

Another advantage of Voith’s Q-Fit solution lies in the preventive diagnostics it provides, which enable customers to optimize fabric service life and minimize unscheduled and unnecessary machine downtime. This provides for higher fabric durability and safety, which translates into improved machine availability, higher productivity and lower manufacturing costs.
