SPM Instrument Finland delivers Leonova Diamond to Koskisen

Finnish wood products and processing company Koskisen has chosen Leonova Diamond and Condmaster Ruby as its new condition monitoring tools at the chipboard mill in Järvelä, near Lahti in southern Finland. System implementation took place in December 2021.

In competition with another supplier to replace existing instrumentation and software, SPM Instrument Finland was awarded the contract because of the many advantages in the SPM product portfolio, including HD technologies and the possibility of combining handheld measurement, online, and wireless sensor data into one system. Koskisen has had separate handheld and wireless sensors systems, which they want to upgrade in the coming years.

In addition to the Leonova Diamond, SPM Instrument Finland also recently delivered a LineLazer alignment set to replace Koskisen’s outdated alignment sensors.

Regarding the reasons Koskisen found SPM a good choice for them, Heikki Sutinen, Maintenance Supervisor at the chipboard factory, said: “We now have capable equipment for our condition monitoring needs for years to come. The solution offers a greater resolution, more functions, and much better software than our old system. Its versatility also enables us to commission new equipment. We can now monitor slow rotating machines, and balancing tools are also a new feature for us. The new software is a huge improvement to its predecessor.

Established in Finland in 1909, Koskisen is a forerunner in the sawn timber and panel industry. Roughly 900 employees make an annual turnover of close to EUR 311 million at the family-owned company.
