Description

Function Control systems are found in a wide variety of industries, providing consistent, accurate and documented sheet count—resulting in improved quality and reduced cost.

Corrugated Board

Quantity based invoicing has been around since the beginning. Customers in the value chain simply expect to get what they pay for and pay for what they get. The Function Control sheet counters for corrugated board, count your board accurately and assure that you invoice what you supply, and supply what you invoice.

Carton Board

A sustainable carton board value chain faces increasing customer and environmental efficiency demands. Accurate sheet counts and deliveries based on quantities rather than on weight can contribute to this sustainability. Function Control systems improve the service quality in the finishing department of the carton board mill by counting the number of sheets in the skid and optionally marking reams in the preferred ream quantity. The counting results can be stored in your database management system and used for accurate invoicing to your customers or to track and trace information concerning sheet quantities for specific customer orders.

Fine Paper

The Function Control systems for fine paper are able to count even the thinnest paper calipers accurately. You are able to store the delivered number of sheets with other data in your customer database for tracking and tracing reasons, knowing exactly how many sheets you have delivered. Additionally, you can mark the reams on the stack without touching it or
inserting tabs. Laser marking gives you the advantage of permanent ream markings rather than removable tabs and they give no impression
