XSYS unveils Catena ProServX prepress software

XSYS has introduced Catena ProServX, a cloud-based, real-time equipment monitoring tool for proactive maintenance and superior quality control. By precisely measuring equipment performance, energy consumption, and consumable usage, ProServX empowers customers with unparalleled insights into their operations. With this data, decision-makers can make informed, data-driven choices  to optimize OEE and ensure the highest quality standards, while minimizing waste for sustainable plate making, the company said.

“Catena ProServX, the latest innovation from XSYS, represents a significant leap forward in digitalizing equipment management and KPI reporting. It is a connected, cloud-based solution that delivers immediate data about asset performance and consumable usage according to industry 4.0 principles,” said Bert Eeckhout. “This new software development, provides a unique access to plate processing data which until today was not available. Now, with the launch of ProServX customers can access and use this data to optimize their operations, and make fact based decisions.”

ProServX provides in-depth production reports at regular intervals detailing the number of plates produced during the specified period, along with the materials consumed. Alerts are sent out if any abnormal activity is registered, such as excessive solvent usage or a malfunctioning lamp, enabling customers to engage in proactive error management and predictive maintenance actions.

Another standout feature of ProServX is its ability to generate individual reports for each job with detailed insights into every aspect, from laser exposure to plate finishing. With this level of traceability, platemakers can ensure 100% quality control, promptly identify and resolve issues, and optimize resource allocation for enhanced efficiency and productivity. 

The data provided by ProServX accelerates remote service capabilities to new heights and reduces unnecessary travel for technicians. “Catena ProServX represents a holistic approach to remote equipment management by offering advanced statistics, comprehensive reporting, and unparalleled support. It is not just a software solution but a real catalyst for improving production performance, and achieving sustainable business success in today’s dynamic landscape,” concludes Bert Eeckhout.

Headquartered in Willstaett, Germany, XSYS operates globally and remains one of the largest suppliers offering both flexographic and letterpress prepress solutions, including plates, sleeves, processors, workflow solutions, and expert professional services, designed to help these industries move forward with increasing innovation, improved productivity and profitability, and a reduced environmental footprint.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
