IIoT and Industry 4.0

In 2019, Texas Packaging embraced Industry 4.0 with real-time monitoring technologies to make sure their operations are as efficient as possible, under the leadership of Cesar Bustamante. They chose to install Worximity sensors, known as TileConnect, on two of their production lines to monitor their downtime and throughput via our dashboard software, TileBoard.

Texas Poly connected two state-of-the-art pouch machines, able to create amazing design and zipper closure. The production team needed to know exactly when the machines are working and what their respective throughputs are as the related costs are determined according machine capacity.

With TileBoard, Texas Poly is now able to monitor in real time the throughput of each machine, they can track each downtime and work on the main downtime causes to improve operational capacity.

The next steps for Texas Poly will be to monitor the global OEE (Overall equipment effectiveness of the plant) while keeping and eye on the quality as well as the quantity of items to minimize rejects. They are also considering to add value to the data already connected by the TileConnect sensors by connecting their ERP and the scheduler system to enrich the analytics of the factory operations and gain efficiency.

They also launched a new branding for the company to convey the modern and sustainable direction of the enterprise. Texas Poly is engaged in offering sustainable products to clients.
