At Labelexpo Europe 2023, together with our valuable Automation Arena partners, we will present a streamlined, realistic production process. Starting from product creation in the CERM MIS Software up till the moment where the camera-inspected, finished rolls are automatically labeled with a unique closure label and are taken into stock!
It all starts with a completely integrated prepress workflow based on our proven CERM-Esko Automation Engine interface. Followed by digital printing on a Xeikon press, including barcodes to automate the finishing, and digital metallization embellishment. The produced semi-finished rolls are then sequentially mounted on a highly automated Grafotronic converting machine, equipped with an AVT camera inspection system. The required number of cores for the job, cut to the correct size, will be available thanks to the automated Boon-tech core cutter which received instructions from the CERM MIS based on the schedule. Defects detected by the AVT camera during the converting process are considered when the Grafotronic turret rewinder requests the CERM MIS to generate and print the unique roll closure labels which are automatically applied on the finished rolls simultaneously being taken in stock in CERM MIS…ready to be picked and shipped.
In this scenario all production devices present will be instructed by the CERM MIS via JDF. And all devices will report real-time data back to CERM via JMF messages.
The automatic registrations resulting from the above-mentioned integrations will be displayed in real-time during the show via a central CERM Production Monitor on-stage and on your own smartphone.
