The Bilwinco Human Machine Interface – productivity statistics at your fingertips

The smoothest 15” waterproof touch-screen operating panel, makes the HMI probably the largest on market and a very easy to use one. It features all the modern production statistics you may possibly need. Statistics can automatically be stored on company networks and processed centrally on purpose-built Bilwinco software. Cameras can be connected to monitor the product flow directly in the HMI program and save expensive operator time. Optional internet connection makes software updates or service analysis simple.

  • The Bilwinco HMI reduces costs at the end of the day
  • Increase Effeciency by handling production data the right way
  • Make adjustments easy and quick - and save time

Empower your operators!

The HMI also monitors the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) supporting the operator and management in optimizing the performance of the line. The OEE indicator summarizes the performance of the weighing system, as well as of the upstream and downstream equipment, all based on Quality, Performance and Availability.

You have access to long-term OEE figures as well as short term OEE figures. Short-term figures makes it efficient to make adjustments on-the-fly and get a quick feedback if the adjustment worked out right or not.

All statistics are presented on-the-fly empowering your staff to make the right decisions while it is still relevant. Statistics can be analyzed across the current production, or optionally exported for further processing.

  • The OEE tool is your key to better line economy
  • The OEE tool improves Quality, Performance and Availability

Intuitive Menu system

Due to the large screen, the menu system is very clear and allows for significant text sizes making it easier for the operator to start, stop and adjust the weigher.
It has five different user levels, all password protected. Each user level can be adjusted to fit the security politics of the company.
The HMI supports multiple languages.

  • Low Training Cost due to the easy-to-use menu system
  • Safe operation & Less Mistakes insurred by a 5 level user access control
  • Low labour cost - Multiple language supports a multilingual workforce

Key recipes can be locked by the supervisor, insuring the best starting point always.
Back-Up your database frequently by simple automatic routines, and your production is safely secured.
With the optional in/outbox add-on, product recipes, statistics and production data can be uploaded to and from your ERP system.

  • The control is the hart of the line and the product database is the blood stream of data making your day go effeciently and safely.
