Classification of packaging machine operation in food industry


  • World-wide installed fleet of similar machines
  • Product quality depends on operation parameters and maintenance schemes
  • No possibility to supervise packaging because of limited access and data security concerns


  • Remote and secure operation and quality monitor
  • Comparison within the installed fleet

Our Contribution

  • Non-intrusive machine supervision detecting machine emission patterns with “attached sensor”
  • Thousands of filling events detected, classified and analyzed
  • On/off, time of operation, downtime, number of produced units
  • Model-based optimization of production parameters and settings
  • Prediction of service events and failure operation
  • Improved machine performance based on KPI modelling
  • Improved handling of quality complaints
  • Concept of field service planning
