Board Converting News will host a free webinar on March 28, 2022, at 10:00 EST on “How Machine Learning Will Change the Corrugated Industry.” Moderating a panel of experts, BCN’s Editor in Chief Len Prazych will help attendees learn about the corrugated facility of the future and specifically, where data is harvested and analyzed, increasing output and profit margins by orders of magnitude, and even predicting and preventing breakdowns before they happen. 

“In the nearly 150 years since corrugated box manufacturing machines came into existence, output, efficiency, and the bottom line has ridden largely on guesswork and intuition,” says Prazych. “Machine Learning will no longer be seen as a cutting-edge technology, but rather as a necessity. Its strategic incorporation into operations will allow box plants to gain a fast and long-term competitive advantage over companies that delay adoption.”

Panelists who will share their information and knowledge on this compelling topic include Matt Miller, Director of Technology at Helios; Justin Gagne, Senior Data Scientist at Very; and Dennis Wood, Director of Manufacturing at Premier Packaging. Each panelist brings a different perspective to the topic, which will be dissected via a series of questions during the 45-minute program. A live 15-minute Q&A session follows the pre-recorded webinar.

Matthew Miller is a technology director with expertise in bringing products, processes and technology to life. An expert at aligning technology solutions with customer needs, he has successfully led teams to build products that have led to commercial growth and increased productivity.

As a Senior Data Scientist, Justin Gagne builds reliable production-ready machine learning services. His career is centered around continual development, beginning with his M.S. in Physics from Georgia State University. He has managed data retention strategies, researched sensor integration, and used custom algorithms to implement product recommendations to name a few of his accomplishments in the machine learning realm.

Dennis Wood is Director of Manufacturing at Premier Packaging, an early adopter of Machine Learning. With over 85 locations in North America, Canada, and Mexico, Premier’s packaging solutions have effectively improved labor efficiency, reduced supply chain costs, and created a world-class experience for its clients.
