Delivering accuracy and productivity
Domino’s Coding Automation solution, QuickStart, provides central management and control of coding and marking operations. The QuickStart, application enables factory-wide printer monitoring and control from a single workstation.
One standard message editor interface provides all the tools needed to create, edit and manage your coding portfolio. A common interface for all of your networked coders enables secure and controlled data management for all coding data. The one button start extracts the correct production data from QuickStart’s central database and updates all of the coders on the production line in a single process.
Coding Automation is made up of a series of additional modules designed to add further control and benefits to the system.
- Make and edit messages and labels
- User level control
- Template editor
- Central print controller
- Product / article database
- Customer database
- Conformance to GS1 coding standards
- Feature rich expression builder
Packaging mistakes are easily made but are costly to rectify. Verification tool includes label verification and message format selection, verifying bar codes against active production orders to ensure the correct packaging is loaded on the production line. This enforces coding consistency, minimising rework and emergency product withdrawal.
The pallet label automation solution enables the production controller to handle complete digital I/O and interfacing to pallet printers and pallet handling systems and includes automatic product identification and label selection.
QuickStart provides standard interfaces to allow integration to external systems. Synchronising production information with company systems ensures consistent data while enabling production to run independently and eliminates errors in manual data entry.
- Master Data Integration with product and customer data
- Production Integration for production orders
- OEM / MES / SCADA Integration
- ERP Integration
Performance Statistics is a set of tools enabling data reporting on coding centric production information such as start/stop times of production lines, counts on all coders. There are tools to monitor downtimes and reason codes associated with problems in production. These can include start / stop times of production lines, counts on all coders.
