Blackwell, UK — LineView Solutions is pleased to announce a newly formed business relationship with BW Integrated Systems, a Barry-Wehmiller Packaging Company and industry leader in the design and manufacture of end-of-line packaging equipment solutions and packaging automation. Located in Romeoville, Illinois in the United States, the recently cemented partnership with BW Integrated Systems is a significant milestone in LineView’s global expansion.
Through this partnership, BW Integrated Systems will extend LineView’s manufacturing intelligence software solutions across their customer base to enrich the features and value of their integrated systems. As both an OEM for packaging equipment and a systems integrator, the company will also offer LineView through their services programmes.
Ian Rowledge, President and CEO of LineView, explains, “In essence, BW Integrated Systems is integrating LineView’s experience and expertise into their solutions. Our ability to capture and add value to manufacturing data, specifically packaging industry data, will greatly enhance their offering. We could not be more pleased to join forces with such a respected global company.”
BW Integrated Systems has installations in more than fifty countries around the world providing technology and technical support for manufacturing companies in a variety of global market segments including automotive, beer and beverage, wine, spirits, container manufacturing, food, household, personal care, dairy, paper, pharmaceutical and consumer mailing and collating. They have decades of experience in robotic solutions, packaging line design, integrated solutions, palletizers and depalletizers, automated can-end and product handling equipment, case and tray packing and forming, advanced conveyance technology and controls, unwrappers, destrappers, feeders, coolers and pasteurizers.
Rowledge continued by saying, “It started with BW approaching us at a previous Pack Expo International tradeshow, and over several meetings, we have realised great synergies. There are numerous benefits to both companies, and while the first is expanded market opportunity, it will eventually lead to a ‘plug and play’ system for customers which will allow for quick ramp up of new lines and equipment.”
Future plans for the partnership include a joint development to streamline equipment commissioning. Such a development would improve agility for BW Integrated System deployments and offer LineView clients the ability to realise operational efficiencies faster.
Both companies offer technical support and remote assistance and operate globally, supporting similar industries with their products and see the significant value of each other’s product lines and expertise.
BW Integrated Systems and LineView Solutions will be demonstrating the latest manufacturing intelligence systems on stand S-2406 at this year’s Pack Expo International, taking place in Chicago, IL USA between October 14—17.
