Let’s go a step forward in the
textile chain. Industry 4.0. is also an issue in fabric
production. Mr. Kürig, at ITMA ASIA 2018 Karl Mayer launched its
own digital brand, KM.ON. What is new in the associated digital
solutions portfolio with regard to production?
Kürig: KM.ON’s range of features has been extended
considerably. A good example from Karl Mayer is a new digital
tool that combines a PDA system with a ticket system to enable
any disruptions in production to be managed efficiently. The
relevant information can be input easily and quickly at the
machine and forwarded to the appropriate location in real time.
Any problems can be dealt with quickly, and the root cause can
be tackled rapidly by displaying the relevant sequence.

What does this tool mean for the
machine operator? Is it an operator friendly technology?
Kürig: This system is very easy to operate, which means that
this new development can be used immediately.
