According to a 2019 Resource Information Systems (RISI) report, the paper market has a potential growth rate of 3.6% globally. In order to stay competitive and capitalize on this growth, pulp and paper-making companies need to build significant muscle to better position themselves to adjust to this increase in demand. It will be imperative that they are agile, innovative and responsive to changing customer demands to minimize business costs, reduce waste, and maintain customers.
X-Rite color measurement solutions can span the entire process – including inspection of incoming raw materials, color measurement of the pulp before the paper is produced, in-line measurement between the press and dryer sections with a good correlation to the laboratory for laminated paper, and finally before reel-up for automatic closed loop quality control – to keep color and brightness in harmony across the entire production line.
Customizable solutions from X-Rite Pantone provide paper mills the ability to:
