Truetzschler: T-LED - Informed at the
speed of light
Light guides our perception. Whether the
turn signal on the car, the indicator lamp on the oven or - much
more romantic - a sunset: In all cases, light has an immediate
meaning. With T-LED, this principle was transferred to
Truetzschler machine technology. The combinations of the
illuminated LEDs indicate more than "OK", "Warning" or "Fault".
In particular, information on productivity and quality can be
read at a glance - from afar.
Imagine standing in a spinning mill. A
great hall, long distances and a large number of machines, of
which the operation must be checked. Signals and information
must be understood and prioritized, so that production is
affected as little as possible by disturbances. With T-LED,
Truetzschler simplifies this important communication process
immensely: Machine operators can read machine status quickly and
from a distance using colored light signals and take the
necessary measures immediately.
At first sight
T-LED concisely displays the status of the
respective machine and thus enables controlling an entire
production process remotely - even with little staff. Intuitive
human-machine interaction is provided by easy-to-remember
lighting combinations. The employee knows instantly what the
machine needs for further operation and can react accordingly.
If, for example, he sees a yellow running light on the distant
machine, he recognizes that new cans are needed. The operator
immediately sets off with the empty cans.
use of light - for less downtimes, improved machine efficiency
and higher productivity
T-LED not only avoids unnecessary
movements, but also helps to set priorities in order to maintain
production and avoid downtimes. Errors and faults are displayed
primarily so that one can react quickly. In addition, quality
and productivity data, such as sliver count variations or fill
quantities, can be displayed. With TD 10, for example, it is
important to be informed about the quality limits of the CV
value, while it can be useful to display can filling quantity at
breaker draw frames. These different displays are freely
selectable and can be adapted to individual requirements.
T-LED - a
component of digital transformation
Spinning mills today face the great
challenge of finding qualified personnel for their machinery.
Where there is a shortage of staff, the digital transformation
should intervene. Truetzschler supports this transformation in
addition to its digital solutions with intelligent machine
concepts such as T-LED. These make it possible to keep
production continuity at a high level even with few personnel.
