Interpack 2023: Marchesini Group's digital transformation and artificial intelligence solutions on show
At Interpack (4 – 10 May), Marchesini Group will be exhibiting the latest technologies developed to constantly raise the bar in the performance and innovation of the machines and services supplied to customers. An area on the large stand of over 1500 square metres (Hall 15 – Stand A42 1-6) will be dedicated to the latest innovations evolved by the Group in the field of digital transformation and artificial intelligence.
Together with its partner Eyecan – a startup born from a Bologna University spin-off – the Marchesini Group team will provide a demonstration of how AI is involved in robot picking applications. What’s more, artificial intelligence will also be the basis for “Morpheus”, the predictive maintenance solution available to customers to aid them in increasing productivity and gaining full familiarity with and benefits from the machines purchased. Thanks to sensors installed on the machine (IoT network) that provide precise monitoring, and data collection and analysis tools using AI algorithms, customers can monitor their machines’ “health” round the clock and plan maintenance in advance, forestalling possible failures.
The Düsseldorf show will also be a unique opportunity for introducing customers to the Customer Portal, with a set of services tailored to their needs, enabling real-time, dynamic information exchange. As well as the Morpheus system data analysis dashboards, the portal also includes the online digital documentation for machines purchased, the Service Platform to handle service requests directly with the Marchesini Group after-sales service, and the interactive parts manual for faster, more efficient ordering of genuine Marchesini Group parts.
Another leading-edge solution on view on the stand is augmented reality size change, a service developed by the Group to assist customers in the transfer of information and know-how for the correct use of machines. This simple, user-friendly technology enables pharmaceutical companies to train their own technical staff quickly and effectively, reducing the risk of human error. In fact, everyone working on production lines can benefit from this tool, with step-by-step guidance in the procedures to be performed for installation of single machine components in the correct positions.
