A New Allpax OEE Software Module Helps to Increase and Then Maintain Retort Room Output

May 18, 2016

COVINGTON, LA — Allpax, powered by ProMach, now offers an overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) software module designed to monitor the efficiency of loaders, shuttles, retorts, unloaders, and conveyor systems in Allpax automated batch retort rooms. This OEE solution helps operations personnel quickly move to correct problems that are lowering production, uncover new opportunities for increasing output, and maintain high efficiency. Allpax customers can specify the OEE module for new systems and retrofit it to existing ones.

Production data, including projected output versus actual, can be displayed on large screen monitors in the retort room, prompting corrective action by shift personnel. Data comparing shifts can also be displayed in real time. “Several Allpax customers that had early versions of this software and displayed output information told us showing real time data motivated their teams to achieve or exceed their shift goals,” said Greg Jacob, Vice President and General Manager, Allpax.

The OEE system can automatically alert Allpax remote support services should output fall below a predefined level. Real time data can be accessed by mobile devices through cloud-based computing. Host computers archive OEE information, making data available for productivity analysis. For greater ease of use, customers can specify the layout of OEE dashboards.
