SIL Modules

Your key indicators in real time
Your custom project for Industry 4.0
Quality at the heart of your priorities
Traceability for every mold
Data for enhanced analysis & supervision
Maintenance at the service of performance

Many parameters can affect a glass group’s productivity. Controlling, supervising and overseeing all such indicators is what guarantees a healthy plant. For that purpose, SILProd gathers data all along production lines and displays it in real time.

SIL4.0 supports manufacturers by handing them the keys to face current and future challenges. The mass of real-time data SIL gathers throughout the glass plant is essential for driving the group, analyzing the past and foreseeing the future.

Customer specifications are the guideline for glassmakers, and following them with precision guarantees the highest degree of satisfaction from end clients. SILXQual is an essential tool for managing quality control across not only raw materials, but also articles and pallets.

Molds play a key role in the production process. They ensure article quality and impact conformity in finished products (thickness, volume, defects in appearance, glaze, etc.). Optimally managing your molds is thus crucial for both units and series.

SILXManager is primarily designed for managers in charge of planning new productions, quality control procedures and preparing new mold sets. This SIL module is also an indispensable platform for performing analyses, enabling both the extraction of data and the generation of reports.

The maintenance budget is an important expense in a glassware. Managing SI machine parts is complex and critical. The optimization of maintenance operations allows the production to reach its full capacity.

SILXMaint will transform available data into useful information, leading to informed decisions and better business results.
