The new MULTIVAC standard - recommended for all MULTIVAC lines
MULTIVAC Line Control (MLC) makes it possible to control all the line modules efficiently from the HMI 3 control terminal of the packaging machine - and all with maximum operating convenience and a high level of process reliability.
The entire line can be started and stopped with just one click. Potential faults during start-up are minimised, operating errors are reduced as is the travel distance between modules, and the availability of the system is increased significantly. The central recipe management of the line ensures, that all the individual components of the line are operating with the correct settings, and that the appropriate print data and layouts are automatically loaded. The required recipe changes are therefore performed extremely efficiently and reliably.
Running the machine empty also occurs fully automatically. The residual products and packs run through all the remaining process stages, until the complete line is run empty and ready for a change of product or recipe.
A further benefit: Unplanned line downtime, for example due to lack of material or a triggered safety circuit, can be identified at a glance via the clear and transparent line status report. This means the appropriate measures can be introduced quickly and in a targeted manner.
The automated capture and processing of all the relevant machine parameters also forms the basis for our MULTIVAC Smart Services - and this is an essential building block for maximum performance, the highest level of operating convenience, and above all for future-proofing of the line.
