Stora Enso Recognized For 5G Technology

AICC Offers Set-Up Reduction Online Course In Spanish AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has released Reducción de configuración (Set-up Reduc- tion) , a new free online course available in Spanish to AICC members. Down Time Lean manufacturing techniques are explained in this course to help eliminate waste in the change-over time between jobs. The waste reduction tool TIMWOOD is used by all the participants to identify seven types of waste.A vid- eo of a ten-minute set-up shows the operators tracked using a spaghetti diagram, then the process of prioritiz- ing and leveling the work is described. The duties, as well as the time it takes to accomplish them, are analyzed, and the necessary training is com- pleted. Most often this results in a set-up time reduced by half. “Reducing set-up time is the holy grail to convert- ers,” said Michael D’Angelo, AICC President. “This course properly addresses the techniques necessary to become more efficient in your operations. Savings achieved falls right to the bottom-line.”

Stora Enso has implemented 5G technology to en- able high density (HD) 360-degree camera solutions in their production environment. On September 15, this solution was awarded second place in the Industry of ThingsWorld Award 2019. Making Connections The 5G technology enables deployment of appli- cations requiring fast and powerful wireless connec- tions, such as augmented- and virtual reality applica- tions, as well as real-time 360-degree camera solutions. The newly implemented 360-degree cameras, in Stora Enso’s production environment, are utilized to pro- duce high density (HD) video streams which can be viewed in real-time and enabling fast, reliable remote monitoring. The 5G connection, in combination with the 360° video stream, means that all necessary information is easily and visually at the disposal of Stora Enso experts all around the world. When something unexpected happens, the video stream gives a real-time view and information of the event, irrespectively of geographi- cal distance.
