    SensorBlade – a reliable service tool for doctor blades

    SensorBlade is equipped with sensors that are used as a service tool for detecting incorrect settings of the doctor system. Using the latest sensor technology, our experts create a digital report on doctor blade work and force distribution. Thanks to this detailed report, the causes of problems are visualized and clear measures and potential savings are identified.

    The perfect blade for your application

      Voith is your competent and innovative partner for the whole production process. Advanced solutions in products, logistics and customer care create essential benefits for papermakers.

      SkyLine products can be used independently of the roll cover manufacturer.

      Through decades of experience in the roll cover sector, the development of the SkyLine doctoring technology was the logical step to achieve the perfect combination of roll, roll cover and doctor blade. Skyline delivers measurable added value in terms of running time, paper machine efficiency and cost savings for the paper mill – especially in challenging positions of the paper machine.
