METTLER TOLEDO, Tampa, Fla., introduced ProdX, an advanced connectivity software program that allows centralized monitoring, control and data documentation for its checkweighers, metal detectors and x-ray systems, whether operating in one location or in multiple facilities.
The ProdX program boosts process productivity, improves control of product quality and provides robust operational security and total clarity for your product inspection program.
Multiple product inspection devices can be integrated into a central monitoring system that can be monitored from multiple locations. The user interface features color-coded machine icons that provide at-a-glance device status and health. As a result, operations managers can plan maintenance and/or repair interventions for times of lowest production activity, such as on weekends or during shift changes.
The ProdX dashboard enables management to receive critical early warning alerts about key situations affecting product quality, such as receipt of non-conforming raw materials from suppliers, serial automatic product rejections and machinery maintenance requests.
Changes to product set-ups on multiple product inspection devices at one or more plant sites can be carried out simultaneously, thereby reducing the level of reliance on multiple line operators.
Standardized reporting meets almost any HACCP-based food safety plan. And, production uptime is further enhanced with the rejects and event monitoring screens and their associated reports. By receiving detailed information in real time, ProdX users can avert potential downtime events and product waste, manage production processes proactively and better utilize valuable maintenance and production personnel.
