PITTSBURGH - eProductivity Software (ePS), a global leader in transformational technology, purpose-built to empower the packaging and corrugated industries, is excited to announce its participation in CorrExpo 2023, TAPPI's renowned annual corrugated conference and exhibition. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how ePS solutions empower them to reduce costs by streamlining processes and optimizing operations. Additionally, ePS will host a What’s New/Tech Talk on "Innovations in Corrugator Energy Saving, Machine Reliability, and Production Efficiency."
ePS will showcase CorrSuite (formerly known as CTI), its comprehensive suite of end-to-end technology solutions for the corrugated industry designed to address the significant challenges prevalent in the industry. With the sector grappling with fluctuating demand, scarcity of skilled labor, and the pressing demand for maintaining or even enhancing product quality while remaining competitive, CorrSuite steps up as a proven solution that automates labor-intensive processes and significantly reduces the reliance on manual tasks freeing up valuable human resources for higher-impact business initiatives.
ePS’ industry experts will guide visitors through its advanced software solutions, providing comprehensive management of core business processes, enabling enhanced productivity and operational efficiency, streamlined workflows, and improved data-driven decision-making. With the CorrSuite MES solution (including CorrPlan – plant scheduling, CorrTrim – corrugator scheduling, and CorrTrac – roll stock management), manufacturers can reduce costs, achieve real-time visibility, optimize production scheduling, and drive continuous improvement across their operations.
As paper continues to be the main cost component of a box ePS’ roll stock inventory management solution, CorrTrac is becoming a more important component of any box plant or sheet feeding operation. As a proven solution that goes beyond traditional inventory control, companies using CorrTrac can effectively monitor stock levels, track usage, and optimize their inventory management processes. It offers real-time visibility into the status and location of rolls, ensuring accurate inventory counts and reducing the risk of running out or overstocking. By implementing CorrTrac, corrugated businesses can enhance operational efficiency, reduce costs, and improve inventory control.
FEPA S.p.A. is one of the largest multi-site corrugated box producers in Italy, serving top brands. They recently implemented an ePS end-to-end roll-stock management software fully integrated with their SAP Enterprise system “With CorrTrac, we can quickly identify what specific roll was used for an order; it has meant that we can consolidate and optimize our paper stock which has been a massive cost-saving for the business.” – Daniele Plazzi, Chief Innovation Officer, FEPA S.p.A., Italy.
One of the ePS exhibit's highlights is the Escada corrugator control technology used by many of the world’s leading corrugated manufacturers. This innovative system offers precise control and monitoring of corrugators, enabling manufacturers to optimize machine performance, reduce waste, and ensure the highest product quality. Escada seamlessly integrates with the ERP and MES solutions, creating a unified ecosystem that enhances productivity and profitability for corrugated manufacturers.
Among the highlights of CorrExpo is ePS’ engaging Tech Talk, "Innovations in Corrugator Energy Saving, Machine Reliability, and Production Efficiency," which will highlight how ePS Escada corrugator control technology solutions revolutionize the manufacturing process by effectively reducing energy consumption and costs, improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), automating corrugator production processes, and providing tools for adapting and enhancing these processes to enhance production efficiency. The Tech Talk will be held on the exhibit floor from 1:00–2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 30.
CorrExpo, scheduled for August 28-30 at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, OH, brings together industry professionals, suppliers, and experts to explore the latest technologies, trends, and solutions in the corrugated packaging industry.
Attendees are encouraged to visit booth 734 to meet with ePS’ team of corrugated experts, learn about their software solutions, and explore how these technologies can transform their corrugated manufacturing operations. ePS representatives will be available to provide live demonstrations, answer questions, and discuss specific needs and requirements.
