Watch Blackbird in action at Swedish Match, Royal Unibrew, Baltic Packaging and Xellia Pharmaceuticals. Learn about the companies' implementation procceses and achievements.

Swedish Match

Swedish Match was able to get their production data quickly. In just half an hour they installed the Blackbird system and was able to see the number of pieces produced and which product is running on the line in real time. The customer can use the Blackbird data to improve the production and see whether the line is reaching their OEE target or not.

Royal Unibrew

Royal Unibrew installed the first Factbird on their production line in just two hours. After a few weeks, the Royal Unibrew team had eliminated problems enough to improve output with 14 percent.

Baltic Packaging

Instead of opting for hefty machinery upgrades, Blackbird offered Baltic Packaging to use the Factbird technology in their current production lines. The company then installed the first 4 Factbirds themselves to begin the transition and began collecting data from the very first day

Xellia Pharmaceuticals

The operators used to register everything manually at Xellia Pharmaceuticals. Installing Factbirds on their production lines made it possible for operators to register stop causes on a computer or an iPad and made it easy to make production report.


Before implementing Blackbird, McBride was having difficulty gaining an overview of the performance of their production lines on a dayto-day level. Additionally, operators typed in stop codes through an SAP solution. McBride needed a user-friendly and fast system to pinpoint stop causes and problem areas without increasing complexity and workload.


Before implementing Blackbird, Sintex was relying on their operators to manually collect production data that their managers would compile into Excel spreadsheets for analysis. A process that is human-error prone, inefficient, and far too familiar to those of us in the manufacturing industry. Sintex rolled out the Blackbird solution slowly, at first, installing it on 10 of their machines.
