Equashield, a global plastics manufacturer whom produce closed system transfer devices was wasting millions of dollars on raw material loss due to minor malfunctions in their manufacturing plants. The company searched for a solution to track the issues more efficiently and reduce their loss of capital and raw materials.


With PlantSharp, the company was able to identify where the loss occurred and monitor key values such as temperature and material flow, to ensure that the raw materials remained intact throughout the process and were being processed according to their quality processes. Visual QA allowed them to monitor the process through images systematically checking the quality of the materials in real-time.

In just a few short years with the help of Trunovate’s MES, automation and quality prediction their production grew from 800K units to over 3M units per month.

  • The PlantSharp suite was installed throughout their plants spread worldwide, and are now able to enforce consistency across all of their manufacturing operations.
  • All employees can view their OEE in real time on plasma screens spread throughout the plant, increasing overall productivity and employee motivation.
  • This deployment of PlantSharp led to a decrease of several tons of raw materials over a 6 month period wasted during the QA process.


With Trunovate we’ve been able to achieve full transparency, control and optimization of our production floor. We can confidently say that Trunovate has assisted to help Equashield reduce waste and increase velocity. Together, we’ve achieved 50% annual growth in our production line.
