Our software system for production planning and process optimization
With the Hunkeler Workflow Manger HWM, lines and locations are networked so that jobs can be produced optimally. The selected apps support the fast and easy creation of productions through a visual display of the print formats including register marks and 2D codes. Faster job and line set-up increases efficiency and flexible job assignment leads to greater product diversity.
The product-oriented job definition and simple operation through the graphical editor offer unlimited possibilities without job restrictions. Our job definition workflow becomes simple and the job data is automatically generated.
The jobs can be created directly on the line or conveniently in the office, for example in print preparation and sent to the corresponding lines. This significantly reduces setup work and speeds up the production of print jobs.
Hunkeler is constantly working on further apps that offer the customer added value and can be installed on the HWM at any time.
The Hunkeler Workflow Manager (HWM) integrates line control, job tracking, quality monitoring and the editor software for the Dynamic Perforator DP8. The HWM also provides a direct connection to the Hunkeler service center in Switzerland. It ensures fast access to the spare parts catalogue with the parts that are relevant for the specific user and his technology. By recording all operating data during production, meaningful logs can be created which can be analyzed over any period of time, errors can be localized and processes optimized.
The Pattern app is used to set up the required perforation patterns. These can be used when creating the job in the Job app. The two apps work completely independant from a production line and can therefore be used without connection to the production network. In the Production app, the desired line, path and tools are assigned to the job. The job can be transferred directly to the connected lines, where the operators can start them and produce the final product.
