Wexxar Introduces the WISE Smart Maintenance System at Pack Expo 2016

Nov 4, 2016

RICHMOND, BC, CA — At Pack Expo in Chicago, November 6-9, Wexxar/BEL, powered by Pro Mach, features WISE, a comprehensive reimagining of how today’s diverse workforce interacts with Wexxar/Bel equipment to achieve highest overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). WISE focuses on: More intuitive user control, onboard machine tuning, visual indication of alarm locations, on-machine troubleshooting, and in-depth changeover guidelines. (Wexxar/BEL Booth # S-3742)

One of the most innovative features of WISE involves QR bar codes placed at key locations on a machine. Scanning the QR bar code with a smart phone or tablet will connect the operator or maintenance person with the most up-to-date information on maintenance procedures, troubleshooting, and adjustments for the section of the machine covered by that QR bar code. This approach utilizes the power of the cloud to deliver current and evolving information, including video, without the hassle or potential security risk of networking the machine to the internet.

Wexxar will also showcase at Pack Expo a stainless steel BEL 505 semi-automatic case former/hand pack station and BEL 150 pressure sensitive case sealer combination at Pack Expo. This combination allows one operator to form, pack, and seal corrugated cases quickly and effectively. Stainless steel construction is ideal for wash down and other harsh environments.
