What are the advantages offered by your company & its products to its customers?
Today with the manpower and space crises representing a severe challenge, automation is the need of the hour in all processes to reduce manpower, increase production with reports generation and Nirvana helps you to achieve all this with Italian know-how and software against traditional cutting method.
In the year 2016, B-Tex flagged off and join hands with Realtime Srl (Italian Collaboration) for technical know-how and 4 point defect logging software to develop Auto-Cut-Pack System, model Nirvana a mandatory innovative step towards future of cutting and packing system.
What are the benefits of Auto-Cut-Pack and what is the ROI on the system?
Nirvana is a boon to inspection and packing department. Due to optimised cut plan, 2-3 per cent A-Grade fabric is saved and mind it, its lots of business and profit for quality and quantity manufactures. Along with this, it reduces manpower up to 60 per cent as there is bare minimum handling of fabric due to automatic packing with sorting and all the extra manpower is eliminated. All defect entries through touch screen in Italian software delivers lots of reports like shift-wise, sort-wise, operator-wise, production and department-wise to improve quality. 40 per cent space is also saved as Auto-Cut-Pack singlehanded delivers 80,000 mtr/day with LDPE and HDPE packing with single operator. There are lots of other benefits like auto-samples, folders, barcode, automatic labelling, etc.
We have successfully delivered this system with software to some high quality fabric manufacturers in last few years. We recommend, any fabric manufacture, who is packing more than 10,000 metres per day should upgrade to this system and with respect to our previous installations and customers feedback, we expect 4- 6 months for the ROI of the B-Tex Auto-Cut-Pack System.
How do you plan to increase your exports in the coming years?
