PTC announced that Sealed Air Corporation, a global provider of food and product packaging solutions and services, has selected PTC’s ThingWorx® Industrial Innovation Platform to improve operational efficiency across its entire value chain.

With production facilities around the world, Sealed Air serves an array of end markets, including food and beverage processing, food service, retail, healthcare and industrial, and commercial and consumer applications. It offers food servicing and food processing industries extended shelf life and enhanced productivity by reducing down-time and conserving energy and other resources.

Additionally, Sealed Air provides product safety to help customers reduce costs associated with damage, restocking, and reshipment. This helps reduce the environmental impacts of additional wasted energy and emissions.

Sealed Air prides itself on delivering innovative products with a key focus on sustainability principles and looks to technology to continually improve how it develops and brings those products to market. This philosophy led Sealed Air to choose ThingWorx to serve as the information hub across its enterprise, connecting plant assets with ThingWorx Industrial Connectivity and monitoring key performance indicators, such as machine efficiency and capacity potential across individual lines and entire plants.

The ThingWorx platform is a suite of components that enable the deployment of applications that monitor, manage, and control connected devices; remote data collection from connected devices; independent and secure connectivity between devices; and device/sensor management and integration with third party systems.
