At NPE2018, Riverdale Global will introduce GlobalTracker, a new color-tracking capability that uses real-time, companywide data from liquid color metering devices to automate many purchasing, production management and compliance functions — and allows remote troubleshooting.
GlobalTracker is available at no cost from Riverdale Global, based in Aston, Pa.
Riverdale will exhibit at the booth S22023.
In the GlobalTracker system, special transmission boxes at the customer's plant receive date from the controllers on the color metering devices, and transmit the information to Riverdale Color over the internet or a cellular network. Software on Riverdale Color's servers tracks material usage and records job-specific data such as operator identification, work order, lot number and color ID. The customer, in turn, can access GlobalTracker information using a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
The capability extends to all production lines, whether in a single facility or at multiple plants.
“GlobalTracker software records data from multiple molding or extrusion lines, and puts it to work, streamlining such job functions as production management, order entry and color matching,” Riverdale Global President Paul Maguire said.
