From real-time overview to problem analysis and claim checking. It also supports Digital Roll Protocol (DRP-standard).

  • Use real-time data monitoring
  • Apply alarm and problem detection
  • Record all data from PROCONTROL:
    - Machine settings
    - Production data
    - Production and waste counters
    - Alarms

The Extensions

for extrusion

RUBY Gain is the extension to monitor production parameter in order to evaluate production quality and improve it sustainably. RUBY Gain provides real-time data and the knowledge to increase film quality and productivity along the value chain.

  • Use smart import and recognition features for your products
  • Learn from past production and runs on various machines
  • Correlate inline (process) & offline (quality), lab and downstream process data
  • Define setpoints and process limits
  • Automatically monitor your live production processes to ensure they meet your specifications
  • Track products and production parameter along the value chain

RUBY Check
for printing

RUBY Check is the extension for an improved print inspection. Review and analyse the print inspection data of finished jobs in the office and leave final quality decisions to the quality manager and not the operator.

  • Review and analyse the print inspection data of finished jobs in the customer office
    - Defect-Check
    - Barcode-Check
    - RGB-LAB-Check / Color-Check
    - PDF-Check
  • Compare the trending of all machine parameters and print defects
  • Use advanced troubleshooting and process optimization
  • Store quality data and provide detailed roll- and job reports

for extrusion, printing and converting

RUBY Flow is the extension for the automated information flow. It enables the seamless transmission of job data from the office directly to the machine. The operator does not need to copy data into the machine anymore and can fully concentrate on a quick set-up.

  • Establish a paperless, intuitive workflow
  • Save time and avoid human errors by process automation
  • Prepare jobs and plan machine from the office:
    - Set up jobs and send them to the machine
    - View and schedule the job sequence
    - Modify job recipes
  • Work with an interface to PPS/MES/ERP-systems
  • Use OPC-UA, HTTPS and ISA-95

RUBY Track
for extrusion, printing and converting

RUBY Track is the extension to overview productivity with one click. Check the details or compare machines, create daily reports and analyse your products and materials.

  • Get productivity overview and analyses with one click
    - Most important KPIs for all machines and jobs
    - Time-based KPI-trend aggregated over all machines
    - Simple data export (CSV)
  • Check KPIs and benchmarks
  • Use details and comparison
    - Extensive productivity analysis for one machine
    - Compare two machines or two-time-ranges
  • Establish paperless production data acquisition
