Mrs. Basset has a long-time experience in the container glass industry especially for plant management systems.

Heye PlantPilot: Intelligent information management

Where are the losses along the line? How do we retrieve events occurred during the production? How is the efficiency of the plant improved?

As pioneer in the development of solutions for the glass industry dedicated to hot end and cold end areas, Heye developed also an intelligent system for the smart glass plant of the future: The PlantPilot.

Thanks to the PlantPilot, all data from the production lines are centralised in a database.

At a glance, operators and managers have a general overview of the actual production tendency in the plant. The modularity of the system enables also manual inputs.

Operators and shift managers can enter any important information, such as setouts, warning messages, downtimes, tool changes, etc.

Thus, glassworks take decisions based on facts. They save time and improve their efficiency, thanks to real time KPI’s spread all over the plant. Reports and data are available at any time.

QCLab – Best quality delivered to customers

The high quality standards on hollow glass articles request various quality controls and measurements.

To meet with these standards, Heye developed a solution for the laboratory: QCLab. Automatic devices are connected to QCLab, which will retrieve automatically all quality control results in a centralised database.

With QCLab, the quality department is focused on the quality of the controlled articles: capacity, thickness, pressure, automatic dimensional devices, etc.

The quality of the results is enhanced: No more manual inputs, no more risk of mistakes and no more paper.

Control charts and distribution diagrams help to supervise, evaluate the process and anticipate on drifts. The plant reduces customers’ risks thanks to full traceability.

Heye looks forward to a good cooperation with Mrs. Basset and says “Welcome to the Global Heye Team!”
