Tetra Pak and Hexagon launch virtual reality platform

Food processing and packaging solutions company Tetra Pak has announced a collaboration with Hexagon’s PPM Division, a global provider of engineering software for the design, construction and operation of plants, ships and offshore facilities. The collaboration is expected to enhance Tetra Pak’s Smart Solutions Platform. The upgraded Plant Engineering Platform will offer virtual visualisation, improving collaboration with customers, speeding up delivery and implementation and enabling the use of digital twin technology over the entire plant lifecycle.

“With Tetra Pak’s Smart Solutions Platform it will be easier for customers to do business with us. Collaboration in virtual space will make us more agile in both the projects and the lifecycle work. The advantage of choosing Hexagon is that we can visualise the complete offer, from an engineering tool suite to Industry 4.0 applications for future growth. And by choosing Tetra Pak, Hexagon collaborates with an important player in the food and beverage industry,” said Marie Sandin, VP Projects, Engineering & Plant Automation at Tetra Pak.

The Smart Solutions Platform is Tetra Pak’s digital plant engineering solution that integrates Hexagon’s software with Tetra Pak knowledge in food production. The collaboration will enable Tetra Pak to work with customers, colleagues and suppliers globally in designing a total production plant. This development, which includes best practice concepts and re-usable design, will enhance transparency and provide smoother project implementation, with faster onsite installation to customised optimisation throughout the plant lifecycle.

“We look forward to collaborating with Tetra Pak, a company that shares our commitment to drive digital and sustainable end-to-end solutions for the food and beverage industry. Its wealth of knowledge and expertise in food processing solutions together with our futureproof asset information management and engineering design technologies will certainly help customers achieve their goals,” said Mattias Stenberg, President, Hexagon’s PPM Division.​​

The first pilot is currently in development in Lund, Sweden, with the global rollout expected to start in 2020.
