HPE AND PTC HELP CUBE PACKAGING ACHIEVE HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY WITH CONDITION MONITORING
In order to keep up with growing demand, food packaging manufacturer CuBE Packaging Solutions embarked on their digital transformation journey with Industrial IoT and assembled a team of HPE, PTC and IoT partners to digitize its factory. As a result, the company achieved real-time insight on machines and operations, boosting their throughput and quality.
Demand is booming for sustainable, innovative food packaging containers. To keep up with the demand, CuBE added 8 new, state- of-the-art injection molding machines, doubling its capacity. However, adding production lines is only part of the solution. To maximize ROI and bottom-line business value, CuBE must also boost productivity and throughput of its assets.
In addition to assets’ capacity, CuBE also had issues relating to interoperability and integration of OT (operations technology) and IT (Information Technology) processes – from air and cooling, to network connectivity, to the ERP system, pieces were disaggregated. CuBE needed full visibility into their operations from end to end.
CuBE assembled the right combination of technology and partners to solve the challenge: HPE, PTC and IoT partners brought intelligence to CuBE’s plant with a scalable Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance solution composed by HPE’s IT infrastructure (hardware & software), PTC’s IIoT Platform and OT connectivity software, technology from partners PCM, VMware and Microsoft, as well as integration services from Callisto.
"CuBE found partners to help us re-conceive what is feasible for factory IoT. And now we’re bringing even more sustainable packaging to the world.”
With its new IIoT framework in place, CuBE gained keen, granular insight into its manufacturing processes and operations in real-time. This has enabled CuBE to identify and address issues with their production assets before they cause downtime, affect quality, or impact production.
Having this end-to-end visibility also enables CuBE to maximize their plant’s capacity and add flexibility, finding processes that can be modified to drive higher efficiency and coordinate scheduled downtime.
With this IIoT solution CuBE achieved:
• 50% Reduction year over year in quality issues, keeping customers loyal, engaged, to protect CuBE’s brand.
• 45% Improvement in throughput, accelerating ROI from CuBE’s expansion investments

Driving Asset Performance with Digitization at the Edge
Over the past few years, IT advancements and lower device costs,have allowed manufacturing companies to aggregate plant floor asset data — assembly-line equipment, tools, and operational systems involved in the manufacturing process - into a common dashboard for improve visibility into plant floor operations and equipment performance. With the goal to improve operations efficiency by increasing asset uptime, improve maintenance productivity, and reduce costs.
Specifically, it has enabled:
- Condition monitoring - Connect an asset in order to monitor its condition
- Predictive maintenance - Use historical and real-time condition monitoring data from assets to predict asset failure
- Asset performance management - Aggregate and integrate real-time and historical failure data, along with asset documentation to predict not only failure but also overall performance across lines, and factories.
