PIM e WEBVIEWER
In combination with the I-NKFILLER ™ system I-TECH provides two software:
PROCOLOR INK MANAGER (P.I.M.)
PROCOLOR INK MANAGER is the latest generation software and technology developed by I-TECH for the I-NKFILLER® system. By interacting with some sensors and the system management PLC, the PIM promptly reports ink consumption by associating it with the production batch and monitoring and recording all the ink loads and discharges that occur in the storage container. All these data are stored in a database (MS SQL) with the possibility of being shared with other customer software (ERP / MES / SCADA) in order to ensure operators have access to all data, information and analysis in real time. Interconnection, supervision and reporting are then added to the system, allowing NKFILLER® to become the original and unique system for the automatic transfer of inks from the storage area directly to the area of use without the need for intervention by an operator.
The Webviewer instead has a viewer function. It is installed on a single PC but is accessible via the web to all the PCs in the corporate network and therefore allows you to view the completed transfers, thus keeping product consumption under control.
Three transfer movements are possible via user menu:
- Smarty refill: when the Smarty container runs out of product, it can be automatically refilled through an external IBC
- Manual withdrawal from the Smarty: all the Smartys are equipped with a tap that allows a punctual pinning of the product
- Transfer to digital machine: Thanks to this software it is possible to view the various product transfers over time.
This software allows you to have a precise and intuitive display of the transfers carried out thanks to the possibility of applying various filters (by product, by quantity supplied, by source or by destination) in order to allow an even more precise frame of consumption. It is also possible to export the result of the analysis to Excel where, to show the consumption of the product even more immediately, it is possible to add charts using the appropriate Excel function.
