Hunkeler Workflow Manager

Hunkeler Workflow Manager – HWM

Our software system for production planning and process optimization
With the Hunkeler Workflow Manger HWM, modules and lines 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 increase 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 and correctly 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.

Measure, Analyze, Improve

Productivity is crucial to revenue, profit, and ROI. Measurement and analysis of the production line activities can lead to identify obstacles that limit productivity and provide valuable information for effective measures.

The App visualize the collected production data from the Hunkeler modules and prepares it, so that it can be integrated into other systems by third party providers via an open interface.

Analytics requires the Hunkeler Data Capture.


Provides a view of the line with the selected production path. It visualizes information about the status of each module. In addition, the app offers the functionality to retrieve operating data from a production line and forward it via the open interface.

Job Workflow

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 Pro 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.

Installation possibilites
