New solution designed to digitally print QR codes on items cast by the ALV passes final testing in Hornberg, Germany. A fully automatic solution that eliminates manual tracking and streamlines the interface with the supervisor
Digital and automatic ‘total tracking’
, right from the article moulding phase and in connection with the factory supervisor
. Recently installed by Duravit
at its headquarters in Hornberg
, Germany, this new SACMI solution prints a QR code
and an ID number on the article just as it leaves the casting cell.
The first such solution to be installed by this multinational producer of high quality designer sanitaryware - and one of the very first on the market - the digital printer
works in line with the existing SACMI ALV
washbasin casting machine.
Its aim is to streamline the interface with the factory SAP
and take the plant closer to achieving full automation of tracking functions
. Previously, in fact, workers had to fill out the information and attach the label to the newly moulded article manually.
Duravit uses SACMI technology and automation all over the world: this latest project launches a new phase that aims to make further use of digital controls
and seize the opportunities they offer. In addition to greater automation, higher efficiency and lower risk of error
, the system also facilitates proactive order management
through real-time monitoring of production data, performance and quality.
