Embutidos Monells digitizes data capture in the plant with the Mapex MES system
Founded in 1975, this Catalan company that produces and sells meat products has implemented the Mapex Production module to capture the OEE automatically in the slicing lines of its three factories.
An ambitious digital transformation project
Embutidos Monells is a company with nearly half a century of experience, which has wanted to adapt to the current context of digital transformation of the industry. The best proof of this is its desire to become a smart factory and to promote the culture of continuous improvement thanks to technologies such as the MES system.
For this company based in Sant Miquel de Balenyà (Barcelona), Mapex meets all the requirements that an MES system must fulfill: it is a user-friendly, open-source platform that integrates with other systems and that can adapt quickly to the new challenges and needs of a company in the meat sector.
A quick and successful start-up
Thanks to the implementation of the Mapex Production module in its slicing lines, Embutidos Monells obtains the OEE in real time and reliably, and is able to work on specific points of improvement. In addition, the company has managed to centralize all the factory’s information on a single platform, a challenge faced by many companies in the meat industry.
Finally, with the help of the Mapex Maintenance module, this organization acknowledges that they now carry out more efficient corrective management, as well as more accurate preventive planning.
