“The system gives us a wealth of information. We have so much confidence in that information that we routinely run “lights out” on nights, weekends and holidays. We just let the system watch the presses and review the process logs later.”

“Until we got the PlantStar system in 2007, all we could do was print out the raw process data from the injection molding machine controls. If we wanted to identify the cause of a problem, we had to manually sift through pages and pages of information. It was very time-consuming and really not very helpful. Today, the PlantStar system draws that information together continuously, and makes it available immediately to anyone who might need it.”
