The focus of Sedo Treepoint GmbH, Mengerskirchen/Germany, at the ITMA Asia + CITME in June in Shanghai/China is on the latest member Sedomat 6007 of the Sedomat 6007/8000 controller series. This new development is a cost-effective solution for high degree automation which offers many flexible internal I/O options. The 8000 series comes in 4 different sizes to match customer needs exactly. The Sedomat 8007 has a 7” touch user interface and is a perfect solution for lab machines and data acquisition. Sedomat 8010 comes with a 10.1” touch display which can be adapted to every dyeing and finishing machine. The biggest user interface with 15.4” is offered by Sedomat 8015.
In addition to the benefits of the Sedomat controllers, the new series is more flexible and offers different interfaces options like CANopen, Profibus DP and Modbus RTU. To improve the communication between different systems, OPC UA and MQTT interface will enhance data communication. Using a SmartBracelet the machine operator will get every notice directly on his wrist and can act immediately when a machine requires his attention. With the SedoMaster intelligent central production planning, control, monitoring, and reporting becomes available. It is a useful tool for all key operators and the management due to the connection of all dyeing and finishing machines. Powerful reporting gives information on productivity, resource costs and OEE. It also links all periphery systems like dispensers, dissolvers, or ERP systems.
With the new SedoApp all production data can also be displayed on mobile devices. SedoExpert is a PPS system which offers a management platform for textile plants and connects the ERP to MES. Customer’s production orders are managed according to standard procedures. Production is tracked and monitored in real time. This ensures a clear organization of the workshop. The Textile Manufacturing Simulation system (TMS) is developed to create the most efficient production schedule for all active production orders (SFOs). With TMS all orders can meet their delivery date and the machine utilization is enhanced. Further advantages are optimized resources and energy costs as well as improved quality.
Within the past years, energy cost becomes one of the most important cost factors for the textile finishing industry. EnergyMaster calculates the energy consumption in production and gives the required information to optimize energy use. ColorMaster is an expert system for recipe management and color measurement. The Windows based software calculates the best and most cost-effective recipe in laboratory and in production it offers the best possible treatment and correct dye program selection. Colorimetric control within different production steps and calculation of additions for addition treatments supplement its functionality. A perfect tool to optimize/automate wash- and rinsing process is Ecomat. It comes with optical RGB-technology and checks online the water clearness during washing/rinsing after the dyeing process. Connected to the Sedomat controller, it can automatically optimize and automate the rinsing process.
