Linpac goes for Barco solutionLinpac Materials Handling, Winsford has recently completed the installation of a PLANTMASTER production monitoring and scheduling system. The PLANTMASTER system is connected to 26 injection moulding machines, providing production monitoring, job scheduling and quality control all updated in real-time, together with full historical reporting.
This project complements the PLANTMASTER system that has been operating reliably, at Linpac’s sister plant in Walsall for the past 8 years and replaces a Dextralog monitoring system, which had been in operation at the Winsford plant since 1986. Barco acquired Dextralog Ltd, Blackburn, U.K., in 1989.
Moss Haddad (IT Director for Linpac Mouldings Division) commented, “Barco have supported us well with our existing projects, so when it came to replacing the Winsford system, PLANTMASTER was the natural choice, not just because of the long association between our two companies. PLANTMASTER provides us with the latest systems technology and is compatible with our IT strategy. The system had already provided benefits at our Walsall site and compared with other solutions was both flexible and cost effective.”
