Catalyx to Showcase New AI-Powered Automation and Optimization Solutions at PACK EXPO East 2024

The company will showcase innovative technologies, lead an educational session, and have their experts on hand across the business verticals at this year’s biggest packaging and processing show.

CORK, Ireland and PHILADELPHIA, February 7, 2024-Catalyx, specialists in the science of operational processes, announced today its plans to showcase a Catalyx SmartFactory Software Suite demonstration at PACK EXPO East 2024 taking place March 19-20, in Philadelphia. Catalyx SmartFactory provides regulated organizations the ability to get away from custom and independently managed software applications on production lines. The software with AI/Deep Learning, Machine Vision, Robotics, Digital Line Clearance, and Returnable Transit Packaging Applications is resilient, expandable, and extendable with feature and function addition capabilities. The software, inspecting the quality and integrity of 100% of the products, reduces batch set-up times by 33%; on-boards new products 36% faster; eliminates manually generated data input errors and digitally transforms the paperwork process, whilst automating the creation of batches from enterprise systems.

“2024 is an exciting year for Catalyx at PACK EXPO East,” said Elliot Abreu, vice president, Catalyx North America.“ For the first time, attendees will be able to experience a demonstration of the Catalyx SmartFactory Software Suite on the show floor and learn how to connect, transform, and scale their operations through an all-encompassing smart technology platform. From Catalyx’s booth to an innovation stage presentation attendees will be sure to experience Catalyx and its latest technologies at PACK EXPO East this year.”
