FLOW management in the new reality of Industry 4.0
Smart Converting enables slitters automation
The factory of the future is based on data. Data allow the optimization of production and drawing conclusions that are relevant from the business point of view.
To meet these requirements, JURMET, at the customer's request, can equip slitters with a modern data management system FLOW, which is based on IoT technology. The system has a modular structure, which enables its expansion in the future. It allows the machine to be integrated into the entire factory architecture. Functions such as: online order monitoring, data export – CSV, transferring work recipes to the company's ERP or loading data from EPR to a slitter, as well as monitoring of ongoing processes are only a part of our system's capabilities. Thanks to the data generated by the FLOW system, our customers can optimize the production process of cut rolls.
Smart Converting solutions were developed by Jurmet's R+D Department
Currently, 4 modules are available, which can also be integrated in the already existing slitters (built from 2019 and equipped with a 15 "panel and to a limited extent – in slitters built after 2016).
The FLOW platform consists of 4 basic modules:
1. „GET” module – for real-time data monitoring, alarm detection and data archiving;
2. „CONNECT” module – allowing the transmission of production data from the office directly to the machine without the need to print documents, earlier preparation and planning of the machine's operation from the office, and the use of the existing recipe, its modification and preview, and changing the order sequence;
3. „ANALITICS” module – enabling a detailed analysis of the work and generating reports;
4. „WORK FLOW” module – allowing data flow using a protocol from another machine (e.g. printer or laminator) in order to eliminate defective parts of material created at earlier stages of production. This module is available for WINDER2C and MASTER slitters.
Thanks to the innovative FLOW system, JURMET slitters allow you to gain access to data being the basis of Industry 4.0.
