NipSense

Electronic nip measurement optimizes nip dewatering

NipSense is a static real-time measurement of the roll nip. Measuring can be made more precise by using a large number of sensors. Nip profile problems can thus be eliminated in a targeted fashion.

The NipSense system consists of a measuring mat with many highly sensitive sensors and an electronic connection module that relays the measurements to a computer with specific software. Radio transmission of the signals means the nip profile can be easily monitored during a load change. Among other things, NipSense provides the following functions: identification of uneven presses and definition of corrective measures, setting of Nipco rolls and checking the crown bow calculations. The data obtained with NipSense can be easily analyzed by the NipMaster software tool. NipMaster then calculates the required crowning correction for optimal nip proportions.
