Machine operators can now pass control of their machine seamlessly between the main HMI and their mobile devices. In addition, a new feature of B&R’s mapp View HMI solution ensures that the controls and information they need are always at their fingertips, so they can move freely around the plant floor as they continue working. 

“Until now, HMI terminals have restricted machine operators to working within a certain radius,” explains B&R software expert Manuel Sánchez. “If they can’t reach the screen, they can’t control the machine.” B&R’s web-based HMI solution now enables them to take control of the machine with them on their mobile device wherever they need to go. Then, once the task is complete, they simply pass control back to the main HMI. 

QRViewer widget in HMI solution generates dynamic QR codes

The new QRViewer widget available in B&R’s mapp View HMI solution generates dynamic QR codes in the machine’s user interface. In addition to handing off HMI operation to a smartphone, these codes enable various other convenient new features to optimize machine performance and availability. 

Faster response times

In the event of an error in the system, operators can quickly access help documentation, instructional videos, part numbers, and more – right on their smartphone. In addition, when viewing historical performance data, they can access higher-level ERP systems and track batches throughout the entire supply chain. The correct information, in the right place, at the right time helps keep the machine producing safely with minimal downtime.

 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
