Careformance consists of four components, with the Intarema system forming the basis for further Smart Factory applications. In addition to the previous machine data, specially integrated sensors – the QualityOn package – can be used in future to record and evaluate MVR (Melt Volume Rate), color and moisture. The QualityOn package enables recyclers and producers to make their recyclates with consistent quality in accordance with the special requirements of their customers and document them transparently using online data acquisition and analysis. Recipes recorded electronically can be compared with each other and modified.
In order to make use of the vast amount of machine, quality and process data in a worthwhile and user-friendly way, Erema has developed a sophisticated MES (Manufacturing Execution System). With re360 you can keep track of the productivity of an entire range of machinery in five modules. “A key benefit of re360 is that it works independently of the plant manufacturer,” emphasises Hackl. “Customers can integrate not only different systems but also their global production locations.” re360 gives you an overview of the capacities/stoppage times of the systems for management, documents key quality data of the recyclates for the location manager and informs the operator about upcoming maintenance jobs.
Spare parts online
The extent to which re360 was developed with customer requirements in mind becomes clear with the link to Erema’s online web shop. Any upcoming maintenance work and the replacement of individual parts is displayed in good time by re360. Spare parts can be ordered online to keep downtime as low as possible and customer systems’ information and previous orders are stored online.
More than 450 systems worldwide
At the last K 2013 Erema launched Intarema based on Counter Current technology. Intarema achieves process stability while maintaining flexibility with ease of operation and considerably less energy consumption. This stability enables automation processes such as Smart Start or the Recipe Management System, which in turn form the basis for modern Industry 4.0 applications. Since the technology was launched in autumn 2013 more than 450 Interama systems have already been sold worldwide.
