Value-engineered solutions for pulp, paper, tissue and nonwoven

Manufacturing

Less effort, errors and paperwork

Panther has developed an intuitive user experience from the ground up that makes for highly effective operators and managers — from orders to shipments. Production, finishing, product tracking, customer facing and flexible reporting occur in easy-to-use and secure applications on any PC and mobile device with Chromium browsers.

MillTools 2.0 user interfaces and automation help users to follow process, avoid mistakes and allow personnel to focus on safety and productivity.

Gather, visualize and analyze data

Capture data from sources such as continuous process variables, scanner quality profiles, discrete lab test data and events which occur at different times during production. ProcessAnalyzer retreives data from QCS, MES, DCS and other databases, then plots the it graphically on a contiguous timeline in 2D and 3D, so you can quickly identify cause and effect of production quality issues.

QCS isn’t a go-big-or-go-home proposition

Legacy scanners, sensors and components become unreliable, while sourcing new replacement parts becomes impossible.

PantherQCS includes scalable solutions, including new scanners and sensors as well as refurbished scanners with easy-to-source off-the-shelf parts. Solutions include advanced feed-forward MD control with virtual basis weight, multi-variable moisture control and automatic grade change as well as QuickChange to respond automatically to sheet breaks and recover within one machine dead-time period.

PantherQCS is scalable, so you don’t have to make all of your upgrades at one time. Pulp and paper mills can have exceptional paper quality measurement with long life and low cost of ownership.
