The SIL system is well known by Glass manufacturers for improving plant efficiency through production monitoring from IS machines to palletizers, quality controls management, mould sets management, pallet audit, pallet resorting and raw materials management.

The global system has been improved with a smart Dashboard displaying at-a-glance main Key Performance Indicators to decision makers, who now receive notifications in real time about upcoming production events – now available in SIL 2015. SIL Dashboard is designed to inform clearly about plant efficiency in real time, with direct access to detailed information in values, percentage, tons, and graphs. SIL Dashboard is customizable, secure and available anytime on any PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

SIL 2015 features include variable equipment management capabilities, allowing to organize and schedule changes of pieces of equipment as delivery arms, conveyor, lehr, etc…

New SIL developments are compatible with all glass process such as the press and blow process, press ware, tubing / drawn glass, and decoration lines. As an example, the SIL solution was recently implemented on tube production lines, with main benefits to improve the process and anticipate production drifts, manage quality controls and follow defects in real time.
