Pro Mach, Inc., a leading provider of integrated packaging products and solutions, introduces at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2015, September 28-30, a comprehensive solution for remote monitoring for overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) reporting and remote service/tech support. Twelve Pro Mach machines at the show are equipped with the new ProTech by Pro Mach technology and will display OEE data via large screen monitors, smart phones, and tablets. (Pro Mach Booth C-3423)

ProTech helps small, medium, and large organizations obtain the highest possible uptime and throughput. This ensures that capital investments in solutions from Pro Mach equipment brands are optimized over the service life of the packaging machine and/or integrated packaging line. A white paper on ProTech is now available for download at http://www.ProTechbyProMach.com.

The security and redundancy engineered into the ProTech cloud-based solution is comparable to that used by the world's leading financial institutions. Building on this secure foundation, Pro Mach engineers created a smart services infrastructure that is optimized for both individual packaging machines and integrated packaging lines. ProTech is only available from Pro Mach brands.

ProTech Remote Monitoring levels the playing field between small to medium sized companies and larger ones in terms of providing all sizes of organizations with the ability to optimize machine performance based on OEE data. ProTech reporting supports the continuous improvement and greater competitiveness of the packaging line. Remote Service has the potential to reduce service times when a machine is down from days, in the case when a technician has to be dispatched to the packaging line, to a matter of hours or minutes.

The Pro Mach one-stop-shop of more than 20 packaging solution brands

At the show, there are 17 new solutions and over 70 machines on display by Pro Mach brands, as well as a fully integrated end of line packaging system featuring pharmaceutical case packing, palletizing, and stretch wrapping demonstration. The more than 20 Pro Mach brands have been organized for the first time at Pack Expo into group islands where linked solutions will give the attendee a solid overview of available stand-alone machines as well as the opportunity to learn more about integrated solutions within and across the groups. Brand personnel will be available to walk attendees to different booths and make appropriate introductions. Information about sections or whole packaging lines may be accessed in this manner.

Pro Mach Group Islands at Pack Expo include: Bottling & Capping, Flexible Packaging, Primary Packaging, Labeling & Coding, Material Handling, and End of Line.

"Pack Expo is the one show of the year when the entire Pro Mach family of brands is together and can demonstrate both individual solutions and collaborations that help customers package more at less cost," said Mark Anderson, President and CEO, Pro Mach. "Our culture of best in class solutions that are enhanced by company-wide initiatives such as the new ProTech smart services technology make our offerings of highest value to our customers."
