Motionalysis, a Delaware-based company founded in 2019, has gained industry acclaim for its unique IP and patent-pending technologies, which deliver an industrial IoT-based estimating platform to any converting operation.

“While the big MIS companies shine at traditional converting, only Motionalysis delivers fast and easy digital estimates that are independent of equipment manufacturers,” explains Motionalysis founder Sean Arney. “As a critical part of Industry 4.0 transformations, Motionalysis measures performance and turns that performance data into actionable information that is available to any customer.”

Motionalysis’ solution begins with an extensive library of carton and packaging designs that allow non-technical users to quickly configure simple to complex production runs, cost estimate those runs, and learn from the actual productions to make better estimates.

“We initially set out to find a partner for good CAD and packaging templates,” explains George Folickman, worldwide director of sales for Tilia Labs. “But we quickly realized what Motionalysis had developed was a powerful and agnostic IoT learning machine for estimating and planning, so they were a natural partner for us.”

Tilia Labs brings to the partnership its planning and imposition application, Tilia Pheonix, which uses AI technology to nest, gang and impose jobs with ease. Uniting planning and prepress under one application, Tilia Phoenix can be integrated into any workflow to automate the ganging and imposition process, reducing time in prepress and maximizing material usage.

“In an industry climate fraught with material shortages, delays, and rising costs, managing and forecasting yields and material requirements is becoming increasingly important,” explains Raad. “This is why Motionalysis and Tilia Labs are great fits for us as workflow integrators.”
