ECN provides tools to assist you in scheduling your extrusion presses: locally, from a remote station or automatically from ERP (SAP/ EIS/AS400) by dedicated interfaces.
Programmable extrusion sequence
It is possible to set till 20 orders by sequence and to change the sequence in every moment.
ECN Press software acquires information from a relational database. It manages the extrusion process, enabling communication among individual pieces of equipment (Furnace, Press, Handling) using the recipes
Feature checking that the current parameters are within the tolerances specified in the recipes and highlight the non-compliance.
The data base system is used also in situations in which the extrusion process is optimized by an experienced operator. The know-how of the expert operator is captured into the database system and used by the not-so experienced operators to ensure uniformly high product quality.
Increase productivity and reduce scrap: minimize weld scrap, backend profile defects, and optimize billet length to avoid extruding partial sections.
ECN collects more than 20 production data (billet-bybillet detail, billet temperatures, shear lengths, gross and net weight, etc.), for each extruded billet. Those are store in SQL database, allowing you to track the complete production process for internal review and statistics.
The screen is designed to be simple and intuitive. It provides the press operators with live process data to evaluate quickly the situation.
Automatic die change.
When the flag is checked ECN changes order/ die automatically.
ECN records all preheating process data. When time and temperature are reached ECN advises that die is ready. Die status is visualized on Order Planning page.
ECN provides traceability of every single order or production lot. Every time is possible to know the order status. Using the scraps information the system calculates the net production and it becomes a tool for analysis and statistics. ECN at STACKER generates and unique code for each basket to follow the order to the packing area with all information for the packing station. This information comes directly from the order (management).
The final quality controls are performed and a label is printed out containing all the data required for the customer and to ensure product traceability.
