The packaging industry is a 200-billion-dollar+ industry (and growing), which makes it a very attractive market, but also extremely competitive. In an industry where branding and name recognition are absolutely critical to maintaining market share, packaging companies strive to excel in producing high-quality, on-brand packaging while continuing to innovate through new products and methods for their consumers.

With susceptibility to supply chain shortages and pressure to find new, sustainable materials and production practices, it’s easy to understand why so many companies rely on Vorne XL’s automated OEE and production monitoring solutions to maximize efficiencies, reduce costs, and secure their bottom line. Other benefits of XL that our packaging customers love include no software to install, no servers to maintain, no recurring fees, and no contracts. Instead you get unlimited users, free technical support, a 3-year warranty, and free software updates. All in an inexpensive, off-the-shelf product.

Key Benefits for Packaging

The packaging industry utilizes a vast spectrum of manufacturing equipment, including many processes that are highly specialized. The beauty and simplicity of Vorne XL is that this specialization doesn’t impact how XL works. XL includes I/O to easily integrate with your process, a scoreboard for your operators, and built-in reporting for your managers. It is hands-down the simplest solution for scaling from machine to enterprise. Whether you are running blow molders, injection molders, die cutters, sheet fed printers, flexographic printers, folders/gluers, or shrink sleeve applicators, you only need one solution. Vorne XL delivers and enables:

  1. 1
    Accurate Run Rates Allow data, not opinions, to drive decisions such as adjusting run rates to achieve the ideal balance of total throughput with respect to quality. Visualize your ideal cycle time against your average run cycle time by SKU for more precise and reliable planning and budgeting.
  2. 2
    Improved Changeovers Single and multi-die changeovers require varying amounts of time to complete. Often, the key to a consistent product is a consistent changeover process. The ability to easily and accurately compare changeovers times makes it possible to establish and maintain a standard process with minimal variance.
  3. 3
    Real-Time Problem Identification and Escalation Identify, assess, and react instantly based on real-time data and alerts sent to the appropriate individuals. End the continuous cycle of expediting customer orders by understanding precisely when jobs will finish based on accurate run rates and downtime visibility. Dramatically improve your ability to meet deadlines.
  4. 4
    Around-the-Clock Data Collection Many manufacturers struggle with performance on alternate shifts. Access to real-time and historical data makes it easy to visualize trends and compare shifts side-by-side to quickly understand what occurred and select the appropriate corrective actions. Clear visibility, available even when you aren’t on the plant floor, provides the comfort and security you need to ensure your lines are running optimally.
  5. 5
    Adaptive Targets and Goals Tied to SKUs It is common to have significant variation in the speed at which individual SKUs run, even on a single production line. This is why the ability to set takt times or goal counts by SKU is critical to driving operational efficiency with your operators on the plant floor. Displaying accurate, clear, and achievable targets by product is essential to winning the shift.
