In packaging plants across the world, compressed air systems create significant energy waste. Pinhole leaks in air lines, sticky valves and other inefficiencies cost huge consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufactures and small contract packagers alike substantial amounts of money. These also hinder corporate green efforts for responsible energy usage. A key opportunity to solve compressed air issues and boost overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is by thoughtfully implementing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) strategies with scalable PC-based automation technologies.
With the emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), packaging original equipment manufacturers are finding significant opportunities to improve the operation of pneumatics technology, helping users boost energy efficiency, enhance safety and cut downtime and maintenance costs.
