Plastics and Rubber.

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

LYNQ is reinventing MES (manufacturing execution system) software tailored to the global market of plastics and rubber as it evolves and continues to innovate and adapt to meet consumer demands. All while exploring sustainable materials and recycling alternatives to reduce their environmental footprint.

LYNQ MES uses critical technology in the plastics and rubber industry sectors to accommodate its ongoing development and sustainability efforts.


MES in the Plastics and Rubber industry.

The industry can gain a competitive advantage by integrating MES into their manufacturing processes in order to reduce waste, improve product quality, increase productivity, and comply with compliance requirements more effectively. As a result of this advanced system, manufacturers are able to remain agile and responsive to market demands, increasing profits and customer satisfaction.

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

A plastics and rubber manufacturer can optimise their production processes by integrating MES, reduce waste and downtime, and improve product quality by using data-driven decisions. As a result, the industry saves significant amounts of money and becomes more competitive.

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

Sustainable manufacturing

Sustainable manufacturing

Although plastics and rubber require less energy and have lower greenhouse gas emissions during manufacturing than comparable alternatives, the industry has become the focus of global concern about pollution and waste. Consumers and governments require manufacturers to operate responsibly. New material sources including bio-ethical and recycled plastics, such as rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate), are gaining ground.

Manufacturers will constantly have to monitor their systems to ensure their suitability for new demands and be prepared to change and adapt, rapidly. Accurate records ensure that the right materials are used in manufacturing processes, avoiding cross-contamination and minimising costly mistakes.

Moving Towards Greener Manufacturing
Complex supply chains

Complex supply chains

Plastic manufacturing is a long process. The journey from the provision of raw materials to distribution takes several stages. Material supplies come from diverse sources with differing lead times.

Visibility of the supply chain enables accurate tracking of materials, right through to the final product. Integration of production with CAD programs assists with the balancing of inventory. Accurate data, provided in real time, supports product quality.

Making Sense of the Data
Price fluctuations

Price fluctuations

Oil prices have fluctuated by over US$100/barrel, making planning difficult. Fluctuating supply availability can impact profits and the ability to deliver.

The collection of visible data in real time enables manufacturers to minimise waste and identify opportunities for improvement, reducing vulnerability to price variation.

The Challenge Series: How do I analyse manufacturing data?
Low-cost competition

Low-cost competition

Producers of raw and part-finished materials, and of commodified products that can be transported long distances, have moved to lower cost countries. Manufacturers in higher-cost areas have to look for premium and higher quality products while controlling production costs.

Maximising profitability, maintaining competitiveness and optimising market share relies on effective management of all resources. Automated data collection helps optimise workflow and seamlessly connect planning and production activities.
