Riverdale Global LLC (Booth S22023) is launching both its GlobalTracker-brand software and a color metering control system for injection molding at NPE2018.
Without cost to the customer, the software can use real-time input from controls to handle a processor's ordering, color matching, documentation and troubleshooting.
Capturing company-wide data from liquid-color metering devices can permit automation of a customer's purchasing, production management and compliance functions.
Special transmission boxes at a customer's plant receive data from the controllers on liquid color metering devices and transmit it to Riverdale Global via the internet or a cellular network.
GlobalTracker software on Riverdale Global servers can track material usage and records such job-specific data as operator identification, work order, lot number and color specification. This capability can extend to all production lines, whether they exist in a single facility or at multiple plants. The customer can access GlobalTracker information using a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
