Radix to demonstrate key AI and IIoT benefits for the pulp and paper industry at TAPPICon 2024

Radix demonstrates the key benefits of AI and IIoT in the pulp and paper industry at TAPPICon 2024

Cleveland, OH, April 23, 2024: Radix, a global technology solutions company,announced its participation as a Sapphire sponsor at TAPPICon 2024, which is being held at Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, OH, from April 28 - May 1, 2024.  

Senior executives and experts from Radix will present multiple papers, which will support this year’s conference theme, "Unleashing the Harmonies of the Paper Industry”, by demonstrating the role that AI can play in the evolution of the industry. These presentations will include participation in the New Technology Showcase that highlights the success of employing Hybrid Intelligence that consists of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools to accomplish tag mapping in the Pulp and Paper industry providing customers with data-driven transformation at scale.  

Radix will demonstrate how historical challenges, such as detecting and troubleshooting unplanned breakdown conditions during manufacturing, can be eased by using machine learning tools and techniques, which results in a much better data-driven understanding of the relationship between target output quality properties and upstream process variables. Similarly, by integrating health monitoring IoT devices into the pulp and paper process, the systems can learn equipment behavior and detect deviations that might be missed during routine inspections.
