With inteos®, Halo realises the first solution for ensuring the complete integration of all relevant production applications. As a result, interfaces are avoided, processes are optimised, costs are reduced and quality is assured.
inteos® integrates all the specific applications of a modern production from the monitoring / plant view to the planning / scheduling to the Jacquard network, Dobby network, machine settings, maintenance management, quality management and warp length measurement.
inteos® enables the networking and integration of a variety of machine generations. The latest generation of machines with ethernet interfaces can be linked directly, while all other machines can be integrated via standardised inteos® interfaces in the ethernet network. This allows for the complete compilation of all relevant production data down to the last detail – e.g. prewinder number and the degrees indicating the position where the weft stop occurred.
The plant view enables the transparent monitoring of machines and all required resources.
The graphic real-time display of the machine status and the integrated alarm server identify problems immediately.
The report generator allows for the simple and flexible preparation of reports and statistics.
The master data for machines, personnel and shift calendar are easy and flexible to manage.
The info point realises the optimal application in the production and on mobile devices.
The touchscreen-optimised software provides all information and guarantees the flexible use of all functions for the monitoring and control of production.
The integrated alarm server gives a warning in case of deviations or irregularities.
Production planning can easily be carried out with flexibility using “Drag & Drop” functions.
For determining the planned completion dates, all relevant parameters are considered – e.g. style, speed, efficiency, shift calendar etc.
The compatibility check supports the process of selecting the most appropriate machine.
The integrated alarm server monitors the compliance with the projected completion date in all production areas.
The maintenance plans and the accessories management allow for the anticipatory planning and optimised assessment of the maintenance work and the wear on accessories (e.g. reeds / rapier heads / brakes / oil etc.).
The Jacquard network realises the fully integrated communication of inteos® <=> Jacquard controller <=> loom and enables the automatic transmission of the design according to the production planning and commencement of the job.
The Dobby network and the machine settings realise the fully integrated communication of inteos® <=> Dobby machine and enable the automatic transmission of the Dobby pattern and all relevant control data and setting data according to the production planning and commencement of the job.
With the on-loom fabric inspection, the quality data can consistently be registered and accurately assigned from the weaving preparation to the weaving to the fabric inspection.
With the warp length measurement, the accurate determination of the available remaining length is possible – accurately assessed based on the actual amount produced.
The machine settings realise the fully integrated communication of inteos <=> ethernet machine and enable the automatic transmission of all relevant control data and setting data according to the production planning and commencement of the job.
The most modern generation of machines with ethernet interfaces can be linked directly, while all other machines can be integrated in the ethernet network by means of standardised inteos® interfaces.
For the knitting and warp knitting all functions and applications have been implemented, as they have in the weaving department, which means that these production areas can also be completely integrated in inteos®.
