Every step in the paper and pulp process involves efficient, continuous operation of many pieces of rotating machinery that can wear rapidly in sustained use in a demanding environment.

If these machines fail, not only can they be costly to repair or replace, but they may also bring the plant to a standstill.

SMART Solutions


Paper manufacturing involves large, complex, fast-moving machinery that can be extremely costly in cases of unexpected downtime or bearing failures. Monitoring is particularly challenging because of the large number of bearings per machine, and the challenge in safely accessing the machines to acquire predictive data.


The SMARTdiagnostics solution by KCF Technologies is the least-expensive and easiest way to achieve continuous monitoring on paper conversion machines. Installing 20 wireless sensors affordably enables continuous monitoring of the vibration and temperature trends. Each sensor wirelessly transmits high-value data safely and at low cost, enabling automatic alarms and integration into the existing software infrastructure.
