For the canmaking industry, as well as, Roeslein & Associates it has been a year of growth and innovation. Roeslein’s Vice Chairman Dave May and Systems Engineering Director J.C. Harrison were able to speak on both subjects at the Canmaker Summit and Asia Cantech, two of the industry’s largest tradeshows.
Canmakers globally and their suppliers, it seems, have yet to fully embrace the benefits of Industry 4.0 – also labelled the fourth industrial revolution – to the same extent that other sectors, such as the aerospace and automotive, have. But, with careful implementation, the return on investment (ROI) they could achieve by embracing this ‘transformative technology’ could be significant.
Roeslein & Associates, a leading engineering, modular fabrication, and construction services company, launched its mobile application, NowFlection at MetPack in Essen, May 2014.
NowFlection allows plant managers to track plant production in real time from their smartphone or desktop computer. Plant production tracked ranges broadly from overall production at multiple canmaking facilities worldwide to the ability to monitor individual lines or pieces of equipment. Plant production reports are also available in PDF form through the application.
