Ishida Europe has launched an enhanced version of its IDCS (Ishida Data Capture System), which records and analyses data from every pack that goes across an Ishida checkweigher. The company says that its new IDCS II can typically pay for itself with only a few weeks of use.

Thanks to its simple and powerful data monitoring and analysis capabilities

IDCS II helps to improve Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), monitor packing line performance, enhance the profitability of production lines and generally enable food packers and processors to manage their operations more efficiently

IDCS II provides fully customisable real-time information that constantly monitors line performance in terms of availability, performance and quality. This provides an OEE percentage that uniquely identifies how efficient a production line is running, and IDCS II can show this value for a factory, a production line, or a particular product at any time frame, in order to identify potential areas of improvement.

IDCS II can be used to spot where product is being wasted or given away, identify reasons for downtime or quickly calculate the impact on accuracy or giveaway if line speeds are increased. It can also provide the data to help ensure companies are meeting legislative requirements, as well as delivering the transparency necessary for traceability purposes.
