One of the greatest challenges of our time is the growing contrariness between the economic and quality requirements in the textile industry, and taking advantage of all existing technological opportunities. The new SETEX solution offers an efficient use of latest technologies.
OrgaTEX X1 production management software guides the intelligent communication to the machines for an efficient production and energy management. The process and recipe handling – constantly used parts of the software – is new designed. The modules provide impressive new features to simplify complex production steps, to save expert know-how systematically and to optimise resource efficiency.
OrgaTEX X1 is also highly customisable. Although dyeing machines significantly lowering liquor ratio and requiring less chemical quantities, this software suite still can reduce dyeing time and production cost, optimise the throughput and expose weak spots and bottlenecks.
OrgaTEX X1 has enhanced adapters to communicate with dyeing, continue and finishing machines for ecological and cost improvement:
* Each machine can be considered within the overall energy management concept
* Intelligent integration of dosing systems saves chemicals and water
* The operation is independent of operator skill
The philosophy of the new software is to bring the best-in-class recipe tools but still providing the flexibility of using simple flat recipe methods. As such, converted information and experience is usable as formulas, wizards assist the creation of formulas and there are predefined formulas shipped with the system.
This is essential for a fast and smooth implementation in a production running at full capacity. Existing machines can easily be refitted to benefit from SETEX’s knowledge of specific solutions.
To learn more ask for demonstrations at ITM 2016 in Hall 12, Booth Number 1209B. SETEX is a global leader in designing, manufacturing and implementation of automation solutions for textile dyeing and finishing machines. Being family-owned and operated from German head office allows operating fast and flexible, and achieving new standards in functionality and usability.
More than 40 leading textile machine manufacturers worldwide are using SETEX’s innovative products to provide sustainable solutions for efficient ease of use.
SETEX Schermuly textile computer GmbH will also show at ITM 2016 the new business App for mobile communication with SECOM controls, available for IOS/Apple and Android/Google tablets and smart phones. As phones and tablet devices start actively participating as expanded computing environment, SETEX has developed the App to provide real-time machine data. The SECOMmobile App scans and detects independently for machines with Setex control systems. The setup and access fits into the IT-security environment of the plant.
Managers can benefit from batch status information and time to batch end. Operators will make use of machine status information and time to next operator call. Service and maintenance responsible take advantage of alarm and event notification and remote monitoring. With the default installation, the software is enabled to connect with two machines, limited to “read only” access. Licensing at SETEX enables for further access levels.
New version of Contactless fibre-scanning
Measuring and controlling stitch count for knitted and weave fabric with CamCOUNT V3 features reliable fabric dimensions on constant fabric weight.
Working with modern camera devices renders radiation safety instructions obsolete. The CamCOUNT V3 fabric measurement directly on the machine rollers makes measurement plates obsolete, avoids friction and allows numerous positions to mount the system – even on relatively small areas along the fabric run. Smart software algorithms to analyze fabric density and evaluate parameters for process control of shrinkage and overfeed, add value on different machines as sanforizing or compactors. The use on tenter frames provides additional information on skew distortion.
Beside improved fabric quality and better colour and pattern uniformity on printed fabrics, the system reduces variations of over- and underweight fabrics and eliminates punch weight measurements. The unique measurement method, which provides precise results on machine halt or up to full speed, allows to use the same technique on the laboratory system FabricINSPECTOR V3. Using this features already for incoming quality control of fabrics, completes the system with detailed visualisation and reporting – prior to production and for process tracing with tolerance bands.
