What makes the system so unique?

There are literally too many points to list here, some of the core differences are:

  • It is a purpose-built "hardware" solution. Everything pertaining to the electronic platform was specifically developed for data acquisition in high noise packaging environments.

  • Our software (written in-house) is very specific to packaging, and incorporates ideas, solutions, processes, reporting structure (OEE, TPM) and many "wish list" features supplied to us by our global contact base and customers.

  • The system functions wirelessly on our proprietary wireless network with an uptime that exceeds 99.9%, no one has this technology except us.

  • To calculate and capture the vast amount of data we report on, we typically only need three inputs from each host machine on the packaging line: infeed product count, outfeed product count, machine door open/E-stop. Should non conforming product be rejected from the line, we use a fourth input to identify this product. We can acquire this input data stand alone by utilizing our own sensors. No other inputs are required.

  • Operator interface is limited to entering estimated downtime for breakdowns above two minutes, no other interface or data input is required. This applies to our software too.

  • We record all production activities, these can be "played back" in real time or accelerated time, the user simply watches the movie.

  • Our ability to dynamically complete a high resolution line capability study every second provides us with data never seen before pertaining to line dynamics and control. No SCADA system can provides this.

  • Our ability to accurately predict time potential events is unique and a first globally.
