An unusually compact workstation for shop-floor production reporting in blown and cast film film plants is new from PlastiSoft Corp., Toronto. Its new Shop Floor Data Collection Workstation consists of a single enclosure (16 x 24 x 18 in.) containing a mini touchscreen PC, barcode label printer, label tray, and barcode scanner. Operators input production data at the touchscreen, such as job, recipe, time spent, materials used, and scrap amounts. The workstation prints barcoded shipping labels and generates job costs. The new unit is intended to work with PlastiSoft’s Tori-Flex ERP software but can be used independently too.
