TAPIO Paper Machine Analyzer and TAPIO TS Profiler
Reducing variations in paper and paper making process is one of the key factors for paper makers in their struggle to maintain the competitive edge on the world market. The problem is that there has been no dedicated device(s) to accurately measure long, medium and short-term variations of paper. Neither has there been measurement systems allowing papermaker to find the correlation between the paper and print quality using long statistically significant sample sizes.

Now TAPIO family of products is helping papermaker to find and solve the cross direction variation, machine direction variation, random variation and printability problems. TAPIO Analyzers are also widely accepted, as a standard measurement when guarantee specifications for the new and rebuild machines are set and verified.
