Data gathering efficiency monitor

November 6, 2006

With the advent of the IMPAX® TSS-6 Efficiency Monitor, its developers have comprehensively filled industry’s need for real-time problem detection and trend analysis. Companies can eliminate job overruns, lost production time, and feed/speed problems. Trends such as products that tend to not be profitable, inefficient machine use, and workers who need to improve productivity can be identified. On the positive side, the monitors enable accurate maintenance scheduling, motivate operators and allow operators to start preparing the next job at an exact point in the current job’s run. Plus, workers don’t waste their time reporting - the system does it.
