processes to so they can continuously diagnosecontinuously improve production efficiency and quality. Using data is the key to optimizing recipes, quality, and capacity to ensure factories stay competitive.   The problem is that data tends to live and die in the equipment, without being recorded or utilized sed anywhere. Acquisition requires months and of hard-wiring your factory into PCs on top of burdensome installation costs. The rResulting data is raw, inconsistent, and hard to translate into insights.   The latest advancements in technologiestechnological advancements we take for granted in the rest of our lives —rising processing power, deceasing computing cost, abundant wireless connectivity, and limitless cloud storage—has finallyis finally available to make your made it possible to make your existing extrusion lines truly digital. Now you can cCollect and analyze all data from your all your existing machines and sensors just simply by by attaching small transmitters to serial ports. See Monitor all the metrics you value, together, in real time. Increase the efficiency and value of your existing extrusion lines. No lengthy IT projects, hardwired networks, or new extrusion equipment necessaryrequired. Willem Sundblad will give an update on the current Industry 4.0 landscape, where the market is heading, and what concrete solutions looks like for Packaging manufacturers in addition to giving a demo as well as give of demo of how machine learning algorithms can and are being used in Packaging.
