Panther Systems knows that upgrading your QCS is not the only upcoming capital expense on your radar. We offer best-in-class refurbished scanners for the dry and wet ends of paper machines, which are certified by Panther and cost less than new replacements. Panther uses new, off-the-shelf components, which meet or exceed specifications of the scanner’s original manufacturer and are never discontinued. We even accept trades. Yes, we can sell you a new scanner too, but why wouldn’t saving a $100,000 or more now and extending the life of your quality control system make the top of your wish list. We take additional steps when upgrading a legacy system to make use of valuable existing infrastructure and signals as well as schedule upgrades in smaller, affordable stages. This level of value engineering, combined with Panther Certified Scanners, is an example of how the mill can upgrade its old QCS and have resources remaining to meet other needs throughout the mill.
