Simplifying Nonwoven Manufacturing Using the Reicofil Data Reporting System
Spunmelt nonwoven lines are huge machines with a high complexity, countless variables and parameters and a high financial impact in case of a wrong machine setup. To reduce the chance of mistakes and to simplify the management of all line related information a software called DRS (Data Reporting System) has been developed, which organizes all data relevant for a production in a convenient, easy-to-use, web-based environment. The main purpose is to identify and alert differences between repeated production runs and to close the loop between machine operators setting up a product and quality parameters (inspection system, testing lab).
