SIG has launched a new digital smart factory solution “Plant 360 Asset Health Monitoring”, taking an important next step in proactive services for customers to improve their operations and ensure the highest food safety and quality, while reducing costs. The company now makes it possible to transform data into insights.

Almarai, the largest food and beverage manufacturing and distribution company in the Middle East, is SIG’s first customer to use Plant 360 Asset Health Monitoring.

Said Robert Ross, Dairy & Juice Manufacturing Manager CCP2 at Almarai: “SIG’s smart factory solutions, including the new Plant 360 Asset Health Monitoring, provide essential monitoring of our various filling line parameters and flag any irregularities. This continuous feedback and corrective actions allow us to avoid unplanned downtime in running filling lines.”

“By regularly monitoring the data of SIG filling machines, our service increases the utilisation of the filling equipment at our customers’ manufacturing sites to reduce unplanned downtime. This significantly reduces costs yet increases sales opportunities for our customers,” commented Dr Christian Grefrath, Senior Global Product Manager Service SIG.

SIG has set up a network of Reliability Centres worldwide to ensure its senior system experts can analyse data from its filling lines and provide fast and efficient insights to help customers. SIG is using the standard connectivity solution Plant 360 Connector to guarantee safe and reliable data flow between customers and SIG.

Added Rony Daher, Technical Manager KSA & Iraq SIG: “By being able to monitor the filling line’s health in real time and communicate to our customers immediately, we can provide the highest production efficiency for customers like Almarai.”  For more visit sig.biz
