New PROFILE/Plus System Shipped to Vietnam

A 10-module, PROFILE/Plus™ test system was shipped to Vina Kraft in Vietnam last week. Today, all team members enjoyed a lunch consisting of Chinese favorites to celebrate (there aren't any Vietnamese restaurants in our area). There were a lot of people involved in the process from securing the order to building and testing instruments and setting up profiles and shipping the equipment. The system will be installed next week.

Vina Kraft, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam is part of SCG. SCG purchased a PROFILE/Plus™ system for their Chiangmai, Thailand facility nearly 10 years ago. They purchased additional PROFILE/Plus™ modules and Color Touch™ instruments in 2010.  The automated PROFILE/Plus™ test system includes: tensile, caliper, burst, grammage, roughness, porosity, brightness, color, formation and fiber orientation. The system will be measuring linerboard with a grammage range of approximately 100 to 250 g/m2
