plus10 Success Stories

Consumer goods

Maximum cost and resource efficiency

The consumer goods industry sector includes the FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) and consumer electronics as well as home appliances and textile products.

The production of consumer goods is strongly demand- and output-oriented as well as cost-oriented. The mass production of consumer goods needs to run on a high level of productivity and technical availability. Fully automated production lines, e.g. for filling and packaging, are just as widespread as rubber and plastic production, e.g. by blow molding, injection molding or extrusion. 

The plus10 tools Shannon® and Darwin actively optimize fully automated consumer goods production operating in a 24/7 mode. Also existing production lines can be equipped with our AI tools (Brownfield integration).

Success story: plus10 at Vileda a brand of Freudenberg

Injection Moulding 4.0: High frequency data collection and mapping of several data sources at Vileda

Reference of client for production optimization || plus10

plus10 established a high-frequency data infrastructure for our injection moulding machines. The collaboration also included a virtual component tracking system to continuously and automatically link all process and subsequent quality data to a product. I was very impressed by the expertise and reliability of plus10.
