May 5, 2017 – Tetra Pak has launched a Condition Monitoring service to help food and beverage manufacturers predict machine failures before they occur.
Based on Microsoft Azure Cloud, Tetra Pak’s Condition Monitoring service provides real-time analysis of operational performance data from more than 5000 connected filling machine lines around the world. This is then used to advise customers on their maintenance needs, allowing them to order parts in advance, schedule manpower, and plan other repairs during the scheduled downtime.
Tetra Pak started a six-month pilot in January 2016, supporting 17 lines across 10 customers in Europe and the Americas with the new service. During this period, downtime was eliminated by up to 48 hours for each line, saving up to 30,000 Euros for the customer.
Tetra Pak showcased this new service at 2017 Hannover Messe, 24-28 April, in collaboration with Microsoft.
