ABB has launched its newest automated data acquisition and lab reporting solution, offering pulp and paper manufacturers rapid analysis of lab quality information, with reliable data storage, management and reporting. Purpose built for paper testing labs, the scalable, web-based L&W Lab Management System replaces ABB and other legacy systems, halves procedure times, and tailors lab reporting to users’ specific workflow preferences.

The system collects, analyzes and reports on information from lab instruments, as well as ABB’s L&W Autoline automated paper testing solution. It compares up to four paper properties and plots trends against previous batches. With instruments connected directly through a local area network (LAN), information is instantaneously accessible through any web-browser equipped device, via a user-friendly dashboard that shows sample data, trends, historical references and KPIs. This eliminates the need for desktop PCs connected to each instrument.

“Our new system is purpose-built for how labs operate,” said Per Sandstrom, head of lab and process testing measurements for ABB pulp and paper. “It will significantly reduce the manual work and IT infrastructure which is typical for lab operations in many mills. This is a tool that will help production and quality managers to immediately see and act upon a lab’s quality information to improve profit potential, which is our goal for all ABB customers.”

Results generated by the L&W Lab Management System can be exported as xml files to external mill-wide systems. Reports generated can also be integrated with the ABB Quality Data Management system and/or the ABB Ability™ Manufacturing Execution System to enable lab information to be included with other key process indicators.

Part of ABB’s end-to-end quality control solution for the pulp and paper industry, the L&W Lab Management System is suitable for mills seeking efficiency gains with automatic lab data collection, including those combining L&W Autoline automated paper testing with other stand-alone instruments, and larger mills needing to collect and export lab data to ERP/MES systems effectively.

Motor Duty CyclesWhat Are Motor Duty Cycles?

When selecting a motor, it is important to consider the required duty cycle to ensure the motor can meet the needs of the application.  This blog post and the accompanying light board video will provide a basic introduction to motor duty cycles and a few of the most common types of duty cycles.

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) defines eight classifications for duty cycle which are grouped by continuous, short term, or periodic cycles.  These cycles refer to the sequence and durations in time of all aspects of a typical operation, including starting, running with no load, running with full load, electric braking, and rest.

Motor Feature


Servo MotorsThe ability to size servo motors correctly is imperative for motion-controlled applications, and it can be much more involved than sizing AC induction motors. Acceleration, deceleration, and running torque must still be taken into account, but the servo’s ability to dynamically control the load’s speed and position is also important. During acceleration and deceleration, peak and nominal running torque measurements must be calculated to ensure that the servo motor does not overheat during use. In addition, inertia matching between the motor and load is necessary to ensure optimum response and system performance.
