Valmet’s IQ Moisturizers start up and improve corrugated box quality at Dunapack Mosburger in Austria

<< Back to Breaking News


The three Valmet IQ Moisturizers delivered to Dunapack Mosburger’s corrugated line in Strasswalchen, Austria, have been successfully started up. With the new solutions, the plant will be able to improve corrugated box quality and plant performance.

Since 2012-2013, Dunapack Packaging has invested more than EUR 30 million in its Mosburger Strasswalchen production site, including a new 2.8-meter-wide corrugated line.

"Higher quality, more diverse papers together with improved production and smaller, just-in-time orders make it more and more challenging to act against warp with standard temperature, speed and glue settings. We were looking for a device to do it. When Valmet presented its control technology that is widely proven in paper production, we were convinced that this will work on our corrugated line, too," says August Hauser, Corrugated Line Manager at Dunapack Mosburger Strasswalchen.

"Valmet’s IQ quality control solutions are established on paper machines worldwide. However, it takes innovative people to adopt them in the converting and corrugated industry, too. Innovation is definitely an attitude shown by the Dunapack Mosburger team," summarizes Christian Kallich, Country Manager, Austria and Eastern Europe, Automation, Valmet.

Technical information about Valmet IQ Moisturizer

The Valmet IQ Moisturizer profiler is used to correct all kinds of warping, decrease cracking tendency and optimize glue consumption by adding a fine and controlled water mist onto the liners with 60 mm or 120 mm resolution in a cross direction. IQ Moisturizer’s two-stage spray head contributes to a balanced and application-matched mixture of air and water. The system is used via an IQ Moisturizer operator interface and integrated into the existing process controls.
