Industry 4.0 in Mailling

We had submitted our innovative machine data logging system. All of our packaging lines situated in our Mailling plant have been incorporated in this digital system for two years. We record all of our technical production data, analyse and then utilise it to continually improve our production processes.

Our goals are:

  • The steady improvement of our overall equipment efficiency (OEE)
  • A higher output at a consistently high quality and stable number of employees
  • Avoidance of faults right from the outset

This also helps to reduce the number of complaints:

  • By more than three percent from 2016 to 2017
  • By a further three percent from 2017 to 2018

The result is a reduction in raw-material and product losses. In addition to our claim to be a principal innovator and technological leader, sustainable management forms a fundamental pillar of our business strategy.

Investment in the future

The machine data logging system is just one example of numerous investments which we make as part of the digitalisation of our processes with a view to the future.
