Senseye Predictive Maintenance in the FMCG / CPG industries
The FMCG / CPG industry has always been at the forefront of mechanization. It kickstarted the first industrial revolution and, as digitization and automation transform warehouses and factory floors, is now leading the way through the fourth.
The very nature of the industry - with low margins, a need to consistently produce a high volume of often perishable product to strict quality standards, and with tight maintenance windows between productions runs - means there’s very little margin for error. There’s simply no room for unplanned downtime. But machine failures will still occur.
A wealth of data is generated by the growing number of smart connected machines communicating with each other and with process equipment - valuable information that can be utilized for automated condition monitoring purposes, often without the need for any additional sensors to be installed.
Capitalizing on this rich source of information can further optimize and improve the cost-efficiency of producing fast-moving consumer goods. Doing so requires a proven, scalable, and trusted predictive maintenance system - Senseye PdM.
Senseye works with some of the largest CPG / FMCG industrial companies.
Case study: Smurfit Kappa
Smurfit Kappa, a FTSE 100 company, is one of the leading providers of paper-based packaging in the world, with operations in 23 European countries and 12 countries in the Americas. Almost all the raw materials are sourced from its own paper mills, so consistency is always a key attribute of its products.
The plant in Norwich manufactures corrugated sheet board and wanted to achieve an increased uptime performance with improved plant reliability.
"Over the last five years we have been on a journey towards predictive maintenance. In 2020 we stepped positively into an online predictive maintenance arena with Senseye. This approach will enable further improvement across our engineering functions as we roll out the approach across other sites driving equipment reliability."
