Graco Announces LineSite™ Remote Monitoring Solution
Control status of hot melt machines from a smart phone, tablet or computer
Minneapolis, MN – Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a world leader in fluid handling products and systems, announces the new LineSite™ remote monitoring solution, designed for use with Graco’s InvisiPac® Tank-Free™ Hot Melt Systems, which are ideal for reducing adhesive costs and boosting production in packaging industry applications. LineSite lets users take control of hot melt dispensing equipment, keeping them in touch with operations by viewing the status of InvisiPac hot melt machines on the plant floor from a smart phone, tablet, or computer. With LineSite, operators can be confident of production quality by observing real-time performance and system parameters.
With LineSite, operators can check temperatures, review critical performance metrics, view how much adhesive each line is using, and monitor machine diagnostics to prevent issues from causing downtime. Email notifications are sent when alarms or system setup changes occur, allowing users to respond immediately to potential faults and diagnose them remotely.
The LineSite data tracking and collection solution transmits real-time data from individual InvisiPac systems and collects the data on a single, local storage device. The data gathered saves money by helping diagnose issues faster, making sure the right amount of adhesive per package is used, and ultimately improving the efficiency of the packaging line. Users can view adhesive consumption over time to spot trends and make quick adjustments. Best of all, LineSite provides peace of mind that jobs are running smoothly.
Use the data from LineSite as a powerful business tool to cut costs. Data is captured in an intuitive graphical format, making system operating data easy to review at a glance. From the plant dashboard operators can track active lines, view live temperatures, graph system parameters to analyze historical performance, and even link to detailed troubleshooting instructions.
With LineSite, accessibility is at your fingertips. Log in from a local network or enable web access through the external portal to connect from anywhere. Authorized users can gain access from anywhere in the world.
