Submitted by Judith Marti on 12 April 2024

  • The project allows to increase the competitiveness of production processes through technological modernization and automation
  • Synaptic, Comexi, Dribia, Rotor Print and Packaging Cluster are the companies and entities that have participated in the project

The MADAM collaborative innovation project ends, an automatic model for the detection of anomalies and error prevention with Machine Learning, which identifies effects that can lead to machine shutdowns and/or manufactures in conditions classified as non-optimal. All this has been achieved through the research and development of an algorithm that allows collecting the data from the machinery, analyzing and processing them, to obtain a cause-effect model. The success of this project of modernization and automation of production processes, favors the reduction of waste, the improvement of the quality of the products, the optimization of the machinery, an increase in productivity and time and cost savings associated with repairs, maintenance, interruptions and machine stops. Aspects that ultimately result in greater customer satisfaction, a better image of the brand and an increase in the competitiveness of the companies that apply it and, by increasing it, of the industry in the global market. Throughout the project, which has lasted one year, several data from several laminating machines have been collected that have allowed to identify the main causes of the stops and implement preventive measures. Thanks to this information, an interface has been developed that allows to visualize this data and the state of the devices. Finally, a validation of the system and its results has been carried out through industrial tests at the RotorPrint facilities. The consortium of the MADAM has been formed by the companies Synaptik and Comexi, as suppliers of technological solutions for the flexible packaging industry, Dribia, as an innovation study in data science, Rotor Print, a company specializing in the manufacture and printing of flexible packaging and Packaging Cluster, as an entity accredited as AEI to coordinate and manage this project.The MADAM project is funded by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism through the support program for Innovative Business Groups (AEI), within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, with the aim of improving the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises.
