Datacolor - Intelligent Production Recipe Management - Process

Intelligent production recipe management

Employing the valuable knowledge of the experts in your company, Datacolor Process helps you manage dye recipes and production dyeing procedures. Process parameters and auxiliary quantities are automatically adjusted based on dye quantity, customer, fabric, dye machine, and performance requirements to achieve an optimized dyeing procedure.

Datacolor Process – Produces the most accurate and efficient production dyeing procedure through rules-based calculations for complex dyeing processes.

Datacolor Ticket – Simple dyelot tickets are produced to ensure accuracy in production dyeing.

Automated dyeing procedures
Datacolor Process automatically generates the best production recipe and dyeing procedure for any color based on relevant dyeing requirements. Rules based on liquor ratio, customer, fabric, dye machine, and dyestuff quantity automatically adjust dyeing parameters and chemical amounts to eliminate dyeing errors. Temperature ramp rate and dyeing time are optimized to ensure the most efficient dyeing cycle.

Dyelot history and recipe correction
Dyelot history and quality analysis enable proactive recipe correction to reduce dye adds. Instantly review results for previous dyelots, including all colorimetric data to identify potential production issues before costly mistakes occur. If a dyelot is off shade, connect to Datacolor MATCH TEXTILE to generate the most accurate and cost-effective correction to get the dyelot back on shade.

Advanced Production Management
Datacolor PROCESS supports exhaust and continuous dyeing on any fiber type. Configure dye machines with min/max control of machine capacity, liquor ratio and pickup. Generate simple production recipes or a complete production process including recipe and process costs. Optional inventory control ensures product availability, while dyelot scheduling guarantees the most efficient use of available equipment.

Workflow integration
Datacolor Process works seemlessly with Datacolor Match Textile and Datacolor Weigh to manage the entire textile dyeing process from lab to production. Designed to link with dye machine supervisor and ERP systems, customized integration modules ensure that dye and chemical quantities and process parameters are passed between systems without the need for manual re-entry of data.
