In the process of producing corrugated packaging there is a lot of potential for productivity increase before and after the corrugator. BHS Corrugated, together with specialized partners, has developed the solution concept which takes the corrugated industry into a completely changed future: 100 percent efficiency, with integrated digital printing, fully automated logistics, lean processes, 50 percent less personnel costs – and fully digitally networked. During FEFCO Technical Seminar 2019, BHS Corrugated and BOBST announced the collaborating on plantwide IIoT solutions and the development of joint use cases for entire corrugated plants. This is a major milestone towards lean, digital box plants and for achieving increased productivity. First applications will be offered in the year 2020. Why Box Plant 2025? Those who now set the course are ready for the digital future in 2025.
Our goal is to increase our customers' productivity by:
• reducing space requirements for storage of paper rolls, non-finished goods and finished corrugated packaging
• reducing waste
• reducing maintenance cost accelerating processes with fully integrated workflows and artificial intelligence
• increasing box output.
