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:
Trust X-Rite Pantone to ensure a quick and accurate inspection of pulp and throughout the line.
Color Inspection for Laboratory: Inspecting color of incoming materials before pulp preparation begins, and while mixing is critical to keeping business running efficiently. X-Rite solutions help laboratory professionals quickly identify color inconsistencies.
Inline Color Measurement for Production: Measuring and monitoring color on the production line is key to ensuring stable and accurate color on paper, minimizing cost and waste that can result in thousands of dollars in financial loss. X-Rite solutions provides operators the tools they need to avoid these costly line errors and rework.
A color tolerance can ensure consistency and minimize variability. This whitepaper offers tips to select the right color tolerancing method and set a realistic color tolerance.
An X-Rite inline solution can help paper mills evaluate color quality and make real time adjustments throughout production to keep color and brightness harmony.
