Integrate your Packaging Line
OAL Connected can pro-actively verify and control each step of the process from the first feed of raw materials, right through to finished goods.
A touch screen terminal on a production line creates fantastic opportunities for food manufacturers to get their systems connected and embrace the internet of things. The touch screen can run label and date code verification software as a stand-alone application or be expanded to include modules for food safety, traceability, performance, productivity, recipe management and much more. These all help you get the most out of your factory.
Link & Control Check-Weigher & Printer
OAL Connected includes direct links to in-line check-weighers to help reduce giveaway and increase factory yields and performance. The application includes the display of live giveaway values of individual stations to a touch panel or mobile device on each line to quickly alert the operations team to any weight deviations allowing quick adjustments to be made. This feature is particularly useful for products that are sold at a fixed weight. OAL have experience for integrating all types of check-weighers used within food manufacturing.
Link to SCADA
OAL Connected can be seamlessly integrated with existing SCADA systems to include mimic screens, product tracking and provide the operations team with critical information such as temperature set points and real-time actuals.
Link to ERP
Live direct links to existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems can be included to validate ingredients and raw materials against the ERP database. This validation can be used, for example, to enable, or disable the tip sequence to prevent incorrect materials being introduced to the process. Finished good values recorded in real-time are also passed back to the ERP database.
