Preventing Machine Stoppages in Real Time with Edge AI

2 minutes

Problem

Carnaud Metal Boxing Engineering (CMBE) faced the challenge of predicting machine stoppages accurately, which is vital for smooth operations and minimising downtime. In addition, due to IP sensitivities, customers often hesitate to share high-frequency data required for predicting machine stoppages with OEMs. Their concerns about data privacy and misuse of information added complexity to the task. Therefore, they needed effective predictive models that ensure secure data handling.

Solution

CMBE partnered with OctaiPipe to implement a solution centred around generating, deploying, and managing Edge AI capabilities using privacy-preserving Federated Learning Ops. This infrastructure was designed to ensure data privacy and economic profitability for CMBE. It enabled the prediction of machine stoppages without breaching the data privacy of the customers involved. 

OctaiPipe’s Impact

5%
reduction in spoilage events
£3.9M
increased revenue per line per year
x6
lower AI infrastructure cost
X5
higher net profit ratio
x3
lower TCO

OctaiPipe’s implementation yielded substantial economic benefits for CMBE. Creating a digital-as-a-service for CMBE led to reduced spoilage events and increased revenue. In terms of costs, OctaiPipe significantly cut infrastructure and operating costs, while multiplying gross profit percentages and net profit ratios by more than x5.
