KapStone Paper And Packaging

Headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois, KapStone is a leading North American producer of unbleached  Kraft paper and corrugated packaging products. KapStone’s annual revenues exceed $3 billion. KapStone employs approximately 6,000 people. 


KapStone Paper and Packaging’s mill in Longview, WA is a large integrated mill producing  containerboard grades on five paper machines. The global containerboard market is highly competitive and capacity has increased recently in the U.S., so meeting all three goals is essential to a paper mill’s survival. KapStone’s technical team decided not only to use PARCview to implement centerlining but then to take things one step further, to use dataPARC and PARCview to reduce costs.

"those golden runs become the target run for each time we try and run that grade"

    Domtar The Leader In Innovating Fiber-Based Products

    When Domtar implemented dataPARC software in their Hawesville and Kingsport locations, results were immediate. dataPARC’s PARCview visualization software enabled the operators to receive and report information rapidly, reducing the need for manual data entry and eliminating reliance on individualized custom methods. Downtime tracking was also greatly improved. Because the results were so positive, PARCview was installed at all Domtar mill sites across the US and Canada.

Our plant visualization tools will give you the insights needed to quickly optimize your manufacturing processes.

Production Of Multiple Grades

Filtering data based on the Grade and applying the proper limit for quality parameters (i.e. Basis Weight) and process settings (HPD/T) often requires a custom exports into Excel.

Going Digital

Migrating manual systems/reports to electronic versions is often a choice between multiple systems from multiple vendors or a home-grown solution. dataPARC was designed from Day 1 to solve these and other problems.

Data Silos

Making multiple sources (Historians, LIMS, MES, etc) available for process troubleshooting is time consuming or requires significant duplication of data across systems.
