Helios, the new AI and machine learning platform tailored specifically to the corrugated converting industry, launched today. The platform is OEM-agnostic and engineered to provide corrugated manufacturers access to “robust, actionable” insights into the performance of their machines with the goal of minimizing downtime, optimizing maintenance schedules, and maximizing profit. Helios is a product of Sun Automation Group.

“IIoT makes every bit of data actionable,” says Matthew C. Miller, director of technology, Helios.  “So many corrugated plants rely on human intuition and experience to drive their decisions. With Helios, anomalies that are imperceptible to even the most well-trained operators can be detected in real time and acted upon. And the machine learning capabilities will mean the platform only gets smarter the more data and user reactions that it is able to process.”

Some of the most beneficial insights Helios can provide are preventative/proactive parts ordering, knowledge about the exact time and cost of parts replacements, the ability for operators to pinpoint the source of slowdowns and other issues, and operator-efficiency training to help machine operators learn and adapt to best practices.
