Zhejiang Dashengda Packaging has implemented OMP’s Unison Planning Solution in its new smart factory in Hangzhou, China. The solution, which includes integrated corrugator deckling and convertor scheduling, increases machine utilisation, reduces waste, and improves service while setting a new internal benchmark on order acceptance flexibility.
In this new intelligent and environment-friendly packaging plant, Zhejiang Dashengda takes plant automation to a next level. In the face of decreasing availability of skilled workers, increasing labour costs, and the need to be flexible in responding to demand, this inevitably brings a significant rate of rush orders. Construction of this plant, which is designed to produce 300 million sqm of corrugated board each year, started in 2018.
Jan Geuens, Partner at OMP, confirms, “We are happy to be able to help Dashengda in creating this world-class automated packaging facility. Dashengda has a clear vision on the future of this type of business.”
