Whether you are an integrated plant, sheet feeder, sheet plant or a packaging distributor, whatever your operation, our intelligent system is designed to suit all of your complex requirements. We offer a complete out of the box (pardon the pun) system. You don't need to worry about joining several pieces of software together to get a full system, ours does it all even the management accounts although we can connect to other ledgers if needed. The Packaging 3000 suite of software comes with all the modules shown in the diagram below. The only optional extras are that the stock system can be upgraded to being fully bar coded if required and we have an ecommerce module for internet sales if that is a requirement.

RF 3000 - The icing on the cake

Bar coded stock control without wires for maximum stock accuracy

RF3000 is our wireless bar coded stock control system. It enables you to book in your raw materials such as sheet board or paper reels by scanning bar codes and removing the need for a keyboard operator. The scanned stock is immediately reflected in the system and can be tracked around the warehouse and factory. RF3000 is capeable of scanning bar codes on products purchased from the vast majority of paper reel suppliers in UK based sheet feeders.

We produce bar coded pallet labels for your finished goods which can then be scanned either into your warehouse or onto vehicles for despatch.

Stock checking is made faster, more accurate and much easier with scanning replacing the traditional paper check lists.

Real time connected data updates
Stock accuracy greatly improved
Less computer terminal interaction for stock control
Radio frequency system meaning no docking stations
Paper reel stock management
Warehouse location control
Fully integrated with vehicle loading
Multi-site warehouse control

 

 

Scheduling 3000

Visual factory planning tool to simplify production planning.

Our new production scheduling product is a visual planning board giving a complete overview of production across all machines and time. The visual nature of the graphical interface allows you to see the jobs as blocks of variable length representing the time each will take to manufacture. The blocks contain several coloured indicators and flags which show the number of colours to print, the ink colours, the material availability, missing formes/stereos, stock replenishment jobs, 1st time run jobs, late jobs and so on.

Scheduling 3000 planning board

By placing the cursor over job you are presented with more detailed information about the job. This will also show links between the highlighted stage and other manufacturing stages for that job. An on screen graph shows the number of crew needed to run the factory throughout the day which is useful for factories where there is more machinery than crews to operate it and so the crews move around as required. The graph enables the scheduler to plan the crews as well as the machines. The system will schedule automatically based on customer required dates but then allows the scheduler to drag and drop jobs around the screen even allowing jobs to be dragged from one machine to another provided the job can be made on the new machine.
