At Hannover Messe 2017, Tetra Pak Services vice-president Johan Nilsson spoke to Alex Clere about the company’s recently announced partnership with Microsoft, which will allow it to reduce the amount of downtime and unexpected outages experienced by its clients through predictive analysis.
All equipment can be retrospectively upgraded so that data is fed back to a central support facility, and then analysed by Tetra Pak’s experts to accurately predict when machinery will stop working or need repairs.
The set-up is complemented by use of the Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality (AR) headset, which can be kept in production environments and used by Tetra Pak engineers to receive remote assistance with maintenance of a machine.
Nilsson believes that predictive analysis will help its clients save “hundreds of thousands of euros” per machine every year.
