The Innova Trimming module controls and monitors flowlines and manual trimming lines in real-time. The system records the amount of raw material delivered to individual trimmers and the quantity of product produced by each trimmer, allowing processors to monitor throughput, yield and product mix.
By interacting with the Innova Quality Control module, the system can perform both random product inspections and also target individual trimmers. Product batches or pieces selected for inspection are sent to a QC station, where an inspector evaluates the batch based on fully customizable inspection parameters. At the same time, the system automatically increases product inspection from trimmers with unsatisfactory QC scores.
Performance figures can be displayed on information terminals at the trimming stations. This allows the trimmer to compare his performance with the line average and to instantly receive notification of QC problems.
