Valmet’s Industrial Internet services are based upon a meaningful dialogue with data. With Valmet’s know-how in process technology, automation and services, customers can turn their data into a valuable asset for decision-making.

Meaningful dialogue with data

Valmet’s Industrial Internet capabilities rely on four building blocks: process technology, automation and IT platform, applications and services, and a solution ecosystem.

The intelligent process technology utilizes the Industrial Internet, with sensors and measurement devices that gather data from machines and processes. Valmet’s automation system provides a solid data source. Combining this with data from the customer’s other mill and plant systems creates an enormous amount of data. Valmet’s experts know which data to analyze and how to utilize it. This expertise is built into the Industrial Internet applications and services. 

Applications and services for reliability and performance

Valmet’s Industrial Internet applications and services are built to improve the reliability and performance of the customer’s processes. Asset reliability optimization includes online monitoring, predictive diagnostics, and data analysis to improve mill and plant efficiency, to help to plan timely maintenance, and to prevent unplanned shutdowns. 

Operations performance optimization concentrates on integrating data from different systems together with production data to optimize mill and plant operations. They also include optimization services for individual processes and the whole machine fleet. 

Industry-specific Performance Centers to provide Industrial Internet services

Valmet has established Performance Centers, which are the customer’s channel to all Valmet’s Industrial Internet applications and services. They can contact the Performance Centers to get real-time support from Valmet experts, as well as remote monitoring support. Moreover, the Performance Centers offer data discovery and big data analysis services based on agreed targets.
