For Frag adhesive factory we developed laboratory measuring device based on Industry 4.0 principles. We performed quality analysis of produced adhesive after continuous data collection. Results were available in real time through visualization software.
Before the main issue was that production based on expert experience and they couldn’t pinpoint why labels peel of from a client’s product. They received complains about the quality of adhesive. We collected data from sensors which measured force, position and how fast the label detached from a product. The analysis enabled them to precisely detect location and cause for label detachment.
The analysis showed that adhesive quality was good but wasn’t fit for that type of label. Frag provided appropriate glue for their clients product. This way the problem was simply solved and supported with the data. Frag managed to improve their service to the client, who is now able to provide better quality to their market.
Now the client understands why is this happening and is able to warn their clients if label isn’t appropriate or they should use other type of adhesive for that type of label before delivering products to be put on the market.
