Paper Products.

Planned. Tracked. Automated. Analysed. Optimised. Understood.

LYNQ is reinventing MES (manufacturing execution system) software tailored to the paper products industry that supplies essential products for packaging, communication, hygiene, and everyday use, while adapting to the evolving needs of consumers.

LYNQ MES ensures paper industry regulations are upheld, ultimately contributing to more competitive and environmentally responsible operations.


MES in the Paper Products industry.

MES helps optimise production, improve quality, ensure compliance, and drive continuous improvement, the industry does rely on MES to resolve these obstacles. By leveraging MES solutions in the industry, improving efficiency, maintaining competitiveness, and streamlining their operations becomes simple.

  • Improve efficiency.
  • Reduce costs.
  • Minimise loss.

By streamlining production processes, improving quality control, and optimising resource usage, MES contributes to significant cost savings for the paper products manufacturing industry.

On average, a paper products manufacturer of 50 resources (employees plus machines) could save $28,000 per month by using LYNQ MES. ROI calculator >>

Identify and address issues promptly with automatic alerts and notifications, connecting shop-floor employees with management. Optimise >>



Paper and board production is water-intensive. Expensive chemicals, such as chlorine, are used in the bleaching of paper. Pollution of water supplies can attract significant penalties. The heat needed for drying paper pulp requires a lot of energy.

Constant monitoring of materials and processes in real-time ensures legislative compliance and control of waste and excess consumption. Process transparency enables the optimisation of employee activity and of jobs and machinery.

Moving Towards Greener Manufacturing
Product quality.

Product quality.

Each step in paper production is critical: pulping, refining, dilution, fibre formation, pressurisation, drying and finishing. Sales, acceptance of delivery and profitability, depend on the correct mix of ingredients, precise processing and maintenance of the correct levels of tension in the fabric.

Automated monitoring of equipment performance will reduce the risk of deviation from recipes or production specifications, and minimise waste through equipment failure.

The Challenge Series: How do we automate our factory?
Energy and pollution.

Energy and pollution.

Recapture and recycling of heat used in the drying process helps to keep energy costs down. Filtration can help to extend the life of working fluids. Filters also assist in the control of waste and polluting effluent.

Real-time visibility of production processes, downtime alerts and collaborative messaging within the factory ensure operational transparency and efficiency, and optimised energy consumption. Deviation from specification can be controlled by automated alerts.

Planning for the Unplannable
Asset management and market demand.

Asset management and market demand.

Asset protection and process optimisation require a comprehensive approach. Reliability of all processes, machinery and fluids reduces the total cost of operation, ensuring paper-making operations are more productive. Changing market needs and fluctuating demand require agility and rapid responsiveness.

Technology that can automate data collection, optimise workflow and seamlessly connect planning and production activities enables optimisation of equipment and energy consumption.
