A.G. Stacker has been named the 2022 Innovation in Utilization award winner by the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council (SVTC). The company received the award during SVTC’s 22nd Annual TechNite Ceremony, hosted on May 4th, at James Madison University.
For 22 years, the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council has recognized and awarded the achievements of local, technology-focused businesses, programs and initiatives. In Spring 2022, A.G. Stacker was nominated for the ‘Innovation in Utilization’ category as a result of their new digital twin assets and solutions, released in the Fall 2021. The ‘Innovation in Utilization’ award recognizes outstanding commercial growth and achievement by an established company that produces high tech products or services, where technology itself is not the core business purpose.
A.G. is among the first to apply and effectively utilize digital twin technology on commissioned machines in the corrugated converting market. The new technology is currently enabled on their eBREAK Bundle Breaker, Divert & Separate System DSS and eTAMP Servo-Tamper systems, with additional assets in development. Using this technology, A.G. customers can collaborate with A.G. engineers during the machine design process, improve operator training pre-install, test production runs/ configurations and more.
