Increase line visibility and improve efficiency

Home Manufacturing & Processing Food & Beverage Increase line visibility and improve efficiency

THE CoLOS suite of software from Markem-Imaje is available from Pyrotec in South Africa.

CoLOS allows manufacturers to integrate equipment networks throughout the production line into one central system. “By standardising data input, human error is reduced. “This saves time, improves production flow, and drastically reduces long-term costs,” Pyrotec said in a statement.

It added that CoLOS consists of several software configurations “that meet every end-of-line production requirement”. These include options for packaging coding, message design, the management of complex labels and codes, and the ability to operate multiple printers from one platform.

“What’s more, CoLOS provides real-time data about production processes by linking production plans to individual printers on a line. It also monitors the productivity and efficiency of each machine, and automates the selection of data for printing, reducing the need for human intervention.”

This, in turn, reduces the risk of operator errors and provides accurate performance reports, the company said.

“CoLOS offers seamless integration for diverse industries and it supports all production control systems.”
