Unprecedented Results:

Changing Changeovers for Maximum Efficiency, Minimal Scrap.

The Sight Machine platform puts an end to on-the-fly guesstimates and excessive changeover-related scrap.

For each paper grade, our AI-driven software analyzes historical run data, correlates relevant environmental and materials input, and supplies recommended settings to ensure the highest quality, complete with upper and lower control limits.

Grade-Change Document — The Sight Machine platform computes and displays optimal machine settings and control limits for a selected paper grade, based on automated analysis of its recent high-quality runs.

Downtime-Related Parameter Variance Plot — Sight Machine identifies machine parameter variance prior to a specific downtime event. The platform can then be set to alert operators if and when the same variances recur, in time to take steps to avert any follow-on downtime.

Preventing Downtime Before It Happens.

Sight Machine algorithms assess recent sheet-break event data for your selected paper grade — literally every input from every relevant machine.

Parameters are automatically ranked in order of variance ten minutes before the break, pinpointing downtime causation plus actionable measures to prevent recurrence.

All without guesswork, manual data pulls, or the need for meticulous, time-intensive human analysis.

Eliminating Problems at the Root.

The Sight Machine platform analyzes workflow events such as dryer steam pressure swings for defined time intervals in the context of recorded outages, to identify parameters correlated with downtime.

No data wrangling required: the platform presents all data in whatever view, matrix, and context you specify.

Days or weeks of tedious numerical analysis are condensed into a few minutes of straightforward visual scrutiny.

Root-Cause Analysis Display — Sight Machine enables rapid, definitive root-cause analysis that was never possible before: by generating detailed, time-based metrics of factors associated with outage events, ranked by strength of correlation.
