CD controls on a paper machine have evolved over the years and in some cases come “full circle”. This presentation will include a general discussion about CD control basics and more advanced software features. The features discussed will include concepts that result in process improvement as well as reduced maintenance requirements. Also included will be information about headbox basis weight actuators and how they have evolved over the years to reach the present status. Finally, time will also be devoted to profile situations on a machine and what the possible causes would be.
