At PACK EXPO Las Vegas in September, OMAC members from P&G, Mettler Toledo and Church and Dwight shared benefits and implementation experiences with PackML and PackSpec 2.
Four OEMs Share Their Experiences Implementing PackML in Machine Design and Build. Mettler Toledo, and Axon, ID Technology, and Matrix built by Pro Mach share their stories.
At a recent meeting in Microsoft’s Copenhagen offices, more than 120 controls and automation professionals gathered to seek out ways of better aligning PackML and OPC UA in an OMAC conference called Smart Packaging Automation with PackML & OPC UA.
The goal of the Copenhagen conference was to share information on how the PackML unit/machine Implementation Guidelines from OMAC can reduce time and costs of integration of equipment. Through live implementations and user stories, attendees learned how PackML can be used as a standard interface to facilitate optimal integration between machines and higher-level supervisory control systems on the factory floor.
