Material handling, Material tracking
The right material, at the right time, on the right machine. Dosing, storage and conveying systems for the plastics industry.
Precondition for the security in the process are all upstream and downstream peripherals. With our storage and conveyor systems we ensure an optimal and fast delivery. Our model-based material handling ensures monitoring and control.

A CASE EXAMPLE
Of false material, high costs and cold coffee. A case study.
In the morning with good mood in the company and see, what´s ran at the night shift. The daily bread of the production manager of an extrusion blow molding production. The coffee still tastes until the time when he is recognized that the bottle has a wrong color. It quickly becomes clear that the night shift has processed 1.5 tons of the material, which would have been the order of the day, for 8 hours. The hairs stand up as the coupling station moves into the field of view and a hose is connected to silo 13 instead of silo 3. And all this because of a random line on the production list.
– The SuperGAU for production – A bad day for the mood and the coffee is now also cold.
Fortunately, there is the model-based material handling – the navigation device for material conveyance – with which such situations can no longer occur.
Material flows are imitated in the model of reality. Silos, couplings, tube paths, dryers, conveyors and dosing devices are monitored. The control system also includes material releases, batch numbers and coupling processes, which are also monitored for tampering. The verification of the material which is used can thus be followed by QA quality auditors. This ensures safety, high quality standards and low production costs. It also quickly becomes clear who has had night shift and has operated the machine, because the user identification registers whether the master or the auxiliary worker was on the machine.
Of course, this not only pleases the production manager, but also the colleagues of the quality management and, ultimately, the operations manager, because materials can be saved.
The Tschritter GmbH from Dorfprozelten connects all devices together and makes monitoring and control possible from the silo to the machine. So that the production manager can sleep well again and the coffee does not get cold. Networked systems, with logical monitoring and control, are therefore so important.
