Real-time monitoring to be extended to Derby facility

Real-time monitoring to be extended to Derby facility

Following the successful implementation of the real-time monitoring systems in our Barnstaple facility, the programme will be installed across the Derby facility.

 

State-of-the-art production monitoring system

TEX Plastics continues to lead the charge in innovative manufacturing practices with their latest investment in real-time monitoring technology for plastic injection moulding. Following the successful trial at their Barnstaple facility, TEX Plastics is now gearing up to implement this cutting-edge system at their Derby facility, marking a significant expansion of the program.

This state-of-the-art production monitoring system provides TEX Plastics with unparalleled access to real-time data tailored to their specific needs. Offering full visibility of production and data from each machine, the system facilitates improved efficiency and enables faster responses to potential issues.

 

The benefits of real-time monitoring

Quality Control: Tracking and analysing critical process parameters in real-time allows TEX Plastics to promptly identify deviations or abnormalities, ensuring consistent product quality, minimising defects and reducing scrap rates.

Process Optimisation: The real-time monitoring data offers valuable insights into injection moulding process performance, enabling TEX Plastics to identify inefficiencies, optimise cycle times, reduce energy consumption and enhance overall productivity.

Early Fault Detection: By continuously monitoring key machine parameters, TEX Plastics can detect potential faults or failures early on, allowing for proactive maintenance to prevent costly breakdowns and unplanned downtime.

Traceability and Compliance: Real-time monitoring provides a comprehensive record of process data, ensuring compliance with quality standards, regulatory requirements and customer specifications. This facilitates traceability throughout the manufacturing process and supports detailed reporting.

Continuous Improvement: Leveraging real-time monitoring data, TEX Plastics can identify patterns, trends and opportunities for enhancing process efficiency, reducing waste and implementing design changes, thus supporting ongoing process optimisation.

With access to actionable insights, TEX Plastics can make informed decisions to improve production outcomes, enhance product quality and maintain a competitive edge in the industry. This investment underscores TEX Plastics' commitment to innovation and excellence in manufacturing practices.
