How to easily control the entire glazing line?

Management of the glazing line is not easy: there are many machines that process the pieces and it’s a ceramic production phase in which the largest quantity of data is collected and processed. It’s a critical and complex point to manage, with many variables and a great need for integration and interconnection. To optimize and make easier the control of this phase, System Ceramics has developed the hardware and software of an innovative control device: Genya.

What is Genya?

Genya is a tracking device that tracks the pieces along the glazing line. It has 3 basic functions: it synchronizes the sequence of the applications performed by the modules present on the line, it centralizes the coordination of a number of operations on the line, and it simplifies the operator’s task of controlling the line and all the possible combinations, avoiding the need to operate on single units. The presence of Genya ensures optimization of the entire process and maximum efficiency of the processing of the machines involved and put in communication between each other.

What are the particular characteristics that make Genya a unique device of its kind?

Genya is a unique device able to collect, re-elaborate and process information along the glazing line in real time: the communication of data to the machine’s vision devices occurs, in fact, in record time and makes it possible to rapidly trace, identify and resolve problems relating to the position of pieces or graphic variations. In practice, Genya acts as instantaneous collector for all operations, detecting and redistributing information in the right sequence to all the machines in the line: it’s able to connect together up to 20 machines.

Where does Genya stand in the Collaborative Full-Digital scheme of things?

System Ceramics embraces the Collaborative Full-Digital philosophy and works on set-ups and machines that can increasingly accompany production in this direction. Genya is a fundamental component in this sense: it makes collaborative digital printing a still more flexible and variable process, extending the functions of Creadigit and of devices connected to it, like Creavision e-View, the vision and self-regulation set-up for digital printing. In addition, the graphic part of production also benefits from the advantages of Genya in terms of simplification and communication, thanks to the management of the printers along the entire line. With the additional Multiple Machine Composer software, combinations are managed in a simplified manner and the quantity of different printable faces increases.
