Davis-Standard is pleased to announce the release of its Integrator PRO+™ control upgrade for cast film, extrusion coating, and aqueous coating processes. This system is the successor to Davis-Standard’s existing Integrator PRO™ human-machine interface (HMI) and supports the DS Activ-Check™ digital transformation platform, which offers a robust suite of analytical tools, cloud and local data storage options, process and equipment technology algorithms. Control upgrades are an integral part of Davis-Standard’s aftermarket services to ensure customers have access to the latest technology.
The Integrator PRO+™ delivers all the valued features of the previous version, such as recipe recall, intuitive interface and control functions, custom reporting and line drive functionality, while further facilitating user-friendliness, mobility, and process efficiency outcomes. Improvements include central control of all production parameters, process data analysis to assist with overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and compatibility with obsolete controls installed on legacy Davis-Standard machinery. In addition, processors can take advantage of extra data storage, in-depth troubleshooting and analysis, and situational awareness services for seamless portability of live information and controls to tablets and smartphones.
Processors upgrading to the Integrator PRO+™ will appreciate better overall line control, greater connectivity, and ease of use. Operators benefit from better graphics, streamlined displays of the most relevant process information, and a visual safety overview screen illustrating the status of each embedded safety device to aid in diagnostics and troubleshooting. In addition, the Integrator PRO+™ doubles data storage compared to the Integrator PRO, with process data collection and trending screens also doubled.
“The Integrator PRO+™ is a logical next step in helping our converting customers take advantage of Industry 4.0 solutions that contribute to bottom-line factors such as improved sustainability, product quality, machinery efficiency and project team mobility,” said Sumeet Kumar, Davis-Standard’s Director of Strategic Marketing for Converting Systems. “We look forward to seeing customers gain value from this control option, especially when combined with our DS Activ-Check™ solution.”
