Smurfit Kappa Piteå - Gaining efficiencies with laser scanning technology

Posted on March 07, 2019

Smurfit Kappa Piteå in the north of Sweden is the largest producer of kraftliner in Europe, with an annual output of 700,000 tons of base paper used in the manufacturing of high-quality corrugated packaging. In order to bring efficiencies to its plant design and modification projects, the company has invested in a laser scanner and CADMATIC’s laser scan modeller.

With the help of these tools, Smurfit Kappa Piteå avoids the need for manual measuring at the plant during projects and provides engineering suppliers with more exact and better quality information to be used as the basis of design work.

Smurfit Kappa Piteå’s business relationship with CADMATIC stretches back to 2000, when it purchased eBrowser licenses to review plant models designed with CADMATIC software by consultants. Today, the company hosts its own CADMATIC model and database that covers parts of the plant. Some of the subcontractors also use the CADMATIC CoDesigner to distribute projects and master replicas.
