The Challenge

In the competitive packaging market, SOMIC sought to reduce costs and time to react to customer requirements, as well as improve its service business.

They wanted to meet market requirements for innovative, intelligent and smarter machines by building the most compact and high-performance solutions possible, almost cabinet-less, that incorporate preventive maintenance with an augmented reality interface.

Because their customers are looking for reliability, production security, and high availability in machines, these are also priorities for SOMIC, all while delivering compact technology.

The Customer
About The Customer

SOMIC, delivers smart, high-performance packaging systems that provide twice the output with half the footprint.

The Solution

When SOMIC set out to build its high-performance coffee capsule packaging machine with 76 motion axes, they designed and engineered the machine without so much as lifting a screwdriver. Instead, they used a digital twin, which simulated the real performance of the machine. A smart Schneider Electric controller and EcoStruxure™ Machine Expert allowed them to work virtually for added flexibility.

For safe and speedy machine diagnosis and maintenance, SOMIC uses EcoStruxure™ Augmented Operator Advisor, Schneider Electric's augmented reality application. It saves time by enabling operators to open the machine's cabinet doors virtually, using a mobile tool, rather than having to do it manually. They can also identify and resolve issues virtually, without having to physically work on dangerous machines.

Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Asset Utilization]
    • The highest output on a minimal footprint (almost cabinet-less)
    • Best-in-class maintenance
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]

    Continuous optimisation during operation

Quantitative Benefit
  •  40% energy management savings
