As a mobile packager of 5 years, the founder of M.A.P. had the idea to build a machine that can do a limitless number of packaging styles from one base. In June of 2018, he went to work developing the M.A.P. system. It took several failed attempts, changed designs, and countless hours to get the M.A.P platform to where we are now. Our prototype has produced over 50,000 6-packs, and 10,000 12-packs and is continually giving us data.
What separates us from the competition?
M.A.P. is the first small-scale manufacturer to replace the tried and true, built since the 1970’s, PLC with the fast-growing technology called the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) on a single board computer. We chose IIOT in favor of PLC as we believe the future in automation is trending towards the use of computers to integrate machines seamlessly together. As a company, we want to be at the forefront of the IIOT revolution and develop smarter, more connected machines. These more intelligent machines help us by collecting data such as faults and cycle counts. The data is stored locally, and a copy is sent to the cloud, so the data from every machine can be analyzed. When we see a trend on why faults are happening, we can use this information to make changes to remedy the cause.
