Informarse, reaccionar de inmediato y anticipar problemas

con los módulos EIT AQ-Clock y EIT Audio

Como reza la famosa máxima de Lord Kelvin, “lo que no se puede medir, no se puede mejorar”. Cuando se trata de potenciar los resultados de la producción en las líneas de envasado, obviamente apreciamos la importancia de tener una medición exacta. El sistema de adquisición de datos EIT™ de nuestra empresa lleva casi 20 años dando acceso en tiempo real a todo el personal de la línea de envasado a información pertinente y susceptible de procesamiento sobre rendimiento, calidad, pérdidas, trazabilidad, consumo de energía, etc., lo que permite optimizar la eficiencia e incrementar la productividad.

Este sistema modular y receptivo continúa evolucionando y adaptándose a las exigencias de los profesionales de la industria actual, y 2015 ha sido testigo de un gran paso adelante con el lanzamiento de EIT™ v6.0, que incorpora una nueva interfaz de diseño web y otros dos módulos innovadores y orientados al usuario: EIT AQ-Clock, que ofrece una medición de la acumulación en tiempo real, y EIT Audio, con sus mensajes de voz enviados al personal de la planta. Con la llegada de la era ‘Factory 4.0’, ¿qué aportan estas nuevas incorporaciones?

  • What is EIT™?

    EIT™ stands for Efficiency Improvement Tool, a system developed by Gebo in 1996. Designed for and by packaging professionals, Gebo’s modular, scalable EIT™ system is now installed in more than 60 countries. Recording production data and events 24/7, EIT™ provides a wide array of metrics to help users analyse production issues, discover efficiency loss sources and enhance maintenance, boosting overall line performance. You can learn more about EIT™ in this short video.


    EIT™ Product Manager Danielle Gagnon explains a bit more about the advantages of EIT™ v6.0: “Nowadays, having a system recording production data and events, providing visual dashboards and comparing performance is not enough. The market is longing for systems with “built-in intelligence”. Actionable information has become a must. Customers need tools not only to handle production issues and meet ongoing challenges, but also to anticipate them. This is what EIT™ is all about, a modular data intelligence system to help you set your priorities, reach your production objectives and reduce losses.”

  • Putting operators in the driving seat with the EIT AQ-Clock module

    The new EIT AQ-Clock module calculates and displays real-time information on available accumulation in-between and among machines, with a close focus on the critical (key) machine. In the event of a machine stoppage the module keeps the operator fully aware of how much time he has for restarting his machine before it impacts the whole line. Getting such information is quite powerful. If an intervention must be done at a machine level, the staff is informed of the available time window for doing it without impacting the line. In both cases, thanks to its unique features, the EIT AQ-Clock helps you to quickly react so these stops won’t negatively impact the running of the line:

    • Ongoing and updated display of available accumulation (time)
    • Helps you to manage stoppages without haltering the line flow
    • Operator dashboard based on visual management lean approach
    • Overview of total accumulation on the line.

    The EIT AQ-Clock is the only solution on the market to provide such comprehensive overview on accumulation on your production lines, allowing operators to address stoppages without affecting the overall functioning of the line. The EIT AQ-Clock boosts operators’ responsiveness and effectiveness.


  • EIT Audio: a real-time link with your operators

    The second new module introduced this year is the EIT Audio, another Gebo solution designed to optimize operators effectiveness. In addition to the visual management tools at their disposal, the EIT Audio provides vocal messages informing operators of ongoing issues, upcoming events, such as a low level of consumables, future changeover… The module can be configured to inform your staff of the “next best move” thus enabling them to set priorities and react in due time. Another great tool to help you improve performance.
    Its technical features include:

    • Advanced Vocal Synthesis
    • Runs on your existing network (WiFi)
    • Compatible with smartphones, PCs, tablets
    • Possible customization on a user basis

    The EIT Audio converts complex and critical information into simple and effective messages for maximum responsiveness.


  • Awareness, responsiveness, effectiveness

    With EIT™ v.6.0, Gebo continues to exceed expectations. These two latest modules, EIT AQ-Clock and EIT Audio, are the only ones of their kind on the market. Not only are they highly complementary, they are simply becoming essential.
    With thousands of users in more than 60 countries, Gebo’s EIT™ technology is a positive contributor to the Industry 4.0, a new age in the fields of packaging and production where automation, robotics, intralogistics and information systems will combine to achieve high performance levels.
