For steel service centers, the calculation of the knives used is a decisive step in their value creation in slitting. It decides decisively on:
compliance with customer specifications
the proportion of scrap generated
the longevity of the knives
In your service centers, you often produce in small batches and calculate many knife? Adjustments while the production process is already running are the order of the day? And at the same time it is a matter of economy, quality and absolute adherence to delivery dates?
Automatic calculation of your knife building plans taking into account the order sequence by integrating production planning from your ERP system
Reduced lead times on the store floor through the ability to work seamlessly digitally and paperless (via direct plan display via upright monitors from the system for the knife makers while working at the turnstile)
More even wear of your tools through optimization of tool usage via integrated tool management
Systematic reduction of scrap and optimization of tool utilization to increase the longevity of deployed knives
Cross-site application with intuitive user interface through web-based deployment without additional software installation
Simplified Recalculation and optimization of knife construction by the employees themselves in the system at the knife construction workstation - manual processes for this can be eliminated and it can be processed in real time
Traceability of the change history for planning optimization and for more data-based transparency / evaluation options for all involved
High system stability via the toii platform incl. backup options
Easy updates even during operation across all sites and machines through continuous and web-based updates
It is also possible to realize customer-specific adaptations, so that the software completely fits your individual requirements and needs.
In cooperation with thyssenkrupp Materials IoT, a new type of software solution has been developed specifically for operators of slitting lines that automatically calculates knife assembly plans based on production planning from an ERP system.
The software takes into account the sequence of orders. The integrated tool management simultaneously manages and optimizes the use of your tools. For example, dependencies can be identified and taken into account in job planning.
High time savings in knife manufacturing
Reduction of scrap
Shortening productionlead times
avoiding errors through manual knife calculation
securing of customer specifications
Improvement of product quality
Increase of the Longevity of used knives
The software also offers digital configuration of multiple designs and variable rubber support gaps, as well as cutting air tables for machine groups depending on the thickness and grade of the material being processed. These electronic processes replace paper-based processes and also enable special customer requirements to be met. Your quality assurance can additionally benefit from integrated automations by means of logic checks, as the software automatically processes these checks in the background and subsequently issues recommendations for readjustments.
This knife assembly software is a browser-based web application and thus runs cross-site on any computer with a modern Internet browser. This basically makes the software compatible with older operating systems as well. At the same time, the intuitive user interface enables quick familiarization and convenient operation.
The knife assembly software is continuously optimized and further developed. On the basis of the web-based application, updates can be made easily at any time, even during ongoing operation across all machines and locations. Users thus always work with the latest version and always benefit from regular improvements and innovations.
A reliable solution for your knife assembly
Data security: The software runs in your infrastructure, i.e. on your servers whether "on premise" or in the cloud. Your data remains your data.
Security in use: The knife building program, like the entire toii® product group, is in use in service centers throughout Europe and thus production-proven. It has an availability of 99.5%. So that you can continue to be ready for production in the event of internal failures, e.g. of your IT infrastructure (network, ERP system, etc.), knife assembly plans calculated in advance can be automatically saved in the system as a backup.
