FactoryTalk® Metrics software replaces manual data collection, providing visibility into operations

Rockline Industries is a leading manufacturer of hard-surface disinfecting wipes. But a cumbersome manual data-collection system stood in the way of fully optimizing operations at its Wisconsin plant.

Stone Technologies delivered a data-analytics solution from Rockwell Automation that provides accurate, timely, and granular information on machine production, performance and activities.

The new visibility into production allowed the company to improve OEE at the plant by more than 20 percent. The solution also allows engineering teams to identify opportunities for process improvements.
