ÅF digitalises Millcon’s production
ÅF has been commissioned to introduce a new digital production system for Millcon, which works with paperboard rewinding for the paper industry.
The new production system is an important part of Millcon’s digitalisation strategy and will lead to better utilisation, planning and control of the production process.
– Increased digitalisation is a prerequisite for us to grow while maintaining high product quality and providing fast deliveries, says Johan Millgårdh, CEO of Millcon.
The production system is based on ÅF’s proprietary ÅF MES platform, which is also used by other clients like Holmen, BillerudKorsnäs, Stena Recycling and Semper.
– With our solution, Millcon will have full control over its production process with a solution that can be integrated with the external systems of its customers and partners, says Richard Hellberg, assignment manager at ÅF.
Commissioning is scheduled for January 2018.
