GAINING THE UPTIME ADVANTAGE
With an innovative design to provide customers with high Availability for production lines and the right metrics to track it, the Videojet 1550 and 1650 printers reduce unplanned downtime through features like the patented CleanFlow™ printhead and Dynamic Calibration™
The 1550 and 1650 ink jet printers also help customers measure Uptime by providing OEE Availability metrics. The Availability measure is also configurable to more closely reflect how customers operate production lines and measure Availability across their plant.
“Every company strives for 100 percent production line uptime. A recent survey by Videojet of customers representing over 400 1000 Line printers on active production lines showed an average 99.9 percent Availability in the previous month.1 Videojet’s 1550 and 1650 ink jet printers allow customers to shrink downtime and expand Availability,”
PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS FOR PROCESS IMPROVEMENT
Beyond providing an Availability metric, users need to be able to identify and eliminate the major root causes of unplanned downtime to improve it. The Videojet 1550 and 1650 printers present downtime information in a logical way to support efficient and effective problem solving. The printer enables drilling into Availability data to help discover technical and operator causes of downtime. Understanding root cause is critical to implement and achieve sustainable process improvements.
THE RIGHT CODE TO KEEP BRANDS STRONG
Coding errors are common – codes that are one digit off, dates that don’t exist, codes on wrong products, typing errors. These mistakes can mean waste, rework, regulatory fines and potential damaging to a manufacturer’
EASE WORRIES WITH SIMPLE OPERATION
The Videojet 1550 and 1650 are designed for limited and simple interaction so users can focus on production. Operators can access all common operations in five touches or less on a large, bright touchscreen interface. The 1550 and 1650 help provide improved control of job parameters and efficient, productive line management. In addition, the Videojet Smart Cartridge™ fluid system eliminates waste, mess and mistakes, and when it’s time for planned maintenance, the 1550 and 1650 modular core system is easily replaceable – getting customers right back to production quickly and efficiently.
“We’re dedicated to continuously work toward reducing the frequency and length of both planned and unplanned downtime so our printers are performing at maximum ability and readiness,” said Dennis Howe. “By designing our equipment to be more available, simplifying and minimizing equipment interaction and making information more actionable, we have created a coding and marking solution that delivers the maximum level of uptime available on the market today.”
