No unforeseen circumstances with HiLIFE!

There are no unforeseen circumstances with HiLIFE on your machine!

While training for my sales position, I was told by instructors to use terms like “uptime” when talking about selling a machine and not to use terms like “downtime”.  Downtime has a negative connotation while uptime makes everyone feel good.  Sounds a little like some George Carlin joke although there is a lot of truth to using more “upbeat” words.  Isn’t truth part of what made some of George Carlin’s comedy so funny?

Whichever you prefer, “uptime” or “downtime”, what we are truly focused on is efficiency of the machine.  Technically, we are talking what is known as O.E.E. (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).  Sure, we may not be taking all of the metrics into account, but you certainly want to know that your machine is functioning well.

How can HiLIFE help you with that?  Consider HiLIFE an effective fortune teller.  We see when a machine is performing at an optimal level and in many cases we have been able to pre-diagnose impending machine issues.  Sound crazy? It isn’t, HiLIFE is an effective system to monitor the equipment, film and operators.  Contact Highlight Industries to see if your application is right for HiLIFE, and remember the words Lord Kelvin spoke in a lecture he delivered:

“In physical science a first essential step in the direction of learning any subject is to find principles of numerical reckoning  and methods for practicably measuring some quality connected with it. I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is a meager and unsatisfactory kind.” 

That lecture was delivered on May 3, 1883.  Don’t let your knowledge be known as a meager and unsatisfactory kind.   Until next time Happy Wrapping and we look forward to more questions.
