Enhanced pack line operations through integrated automation &
digitalisation of production processes 

The factory of the future ushers in opportunities for manufacturers to work more efficiently and flexibly, generating new value and customer experiences.  Whilst organizations understand the need to embrace new technologies, breaking through the early stages of adoption often presents a serious challenge. 

              CXV Global SmartFactorytm

CXV Global SmartFactorytm closes the gap by elevating current line capability; digitally enhancing the packaging inspection process; securely integrating the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) automation technology of the production line with the corporate information (ERP and MES) systems, enabling the delivery of compliant products to market with maximum efficiency, quality and profitability.

Helping Achieve World Class OEE

The solution, inspecting the quality and integrity of 100% of the products, reduces batch set-up times by 33%; onboards new products 36% faster; eliminates manually generated data input errors; digitally transforms the paperwork process and automates the creation of batches from enterprise systems. The result of which is an all-encompassing “smart” product that ensures quality throughout production with full data integrity, traceability and dramatically improved OEE.
