MoveRoll Oy, Finland, has introduced a new generation of MoveRoll conveyors, new bumpers, and as a special highlight, zero-energy receivers. "We developed the receiver from zero, tested it in the field, and the results are excellent. Traditional systems consume up to 20 MWh of energy annually. Our receiver does not need energy at all," says MoveRoll's CEO Mikko Rantanen.

According to MoveRoll, measurements show that, compared with traditional roll handling systems, MoveRoll products save up to 85% in energy consumption. Due to modularity and lack of moving parts, the company adds, MoveRoll conveyors are flexible, robust, and easy to use. Compared with the traditional way of roll handling, "there is evidence that MoveRoll boosts safety in paper mills to a whole new level," the company notes.
