Experience the ECS Difference

ECS is a software and hardware company with one goal in mind – to increase the realized capacity of your manufacturing process. 

Our camera based quality control systems help increase the speed of the process while decreasing waste (defects and wasted material during process disruptions) and delay (downtime).   Maintaining and increasing the realized capacity is not an option for today’s industries – it’s the key to survival and this task is not getting easier.

Why choose ECS?

Because these solutions become such a long-term and integral and critical aspect of best practices for our installed base – ECS understands we must become a partner in all aspects of the product lifecycle of these camera based solutions.  We must be focused at all times on not only on how our systems are developed and built – but equally as important is the quality of installation and support.  Our systems cannot afford to fail the operator and management when it’s needed most.  In other words – we help increase uptime of your process – so the uptime of the camera based quality control system should never the problem. 

The best equipment coupled with the best people.

REALIZED CAPACITY

From a solution standpoint – ECS provides a wide selection of quality control solutions under three main groups that can be installed in two ways

1.      On a single process
a.      Process Monitoring
b.      Event Capture
c.      Web Inspection

2.      On a group of processes - RIM

Any of the solutions can be executed in the field from large permanent systems to small rolling or handheld configurations. 

Intelligence Roll Mapping: What is Realized Capacity on a group of processes?

The majority of products that are manufactured are a sum of several individual steps.  A primary asset creates a batch of goods that is then sent to another process for additional value add. 

For example – a diaper starts from a rolled product 3 to 10 meters wide weighing several tons and is converted over multiple steps to create the highly engineered product used in a household.  The overall realized capacity is a sum of the individual steps.  RIM is the application of defect data from one process that is passed to the next process allowing these subsequent processes to optimize how it’s converted.  A chain is only as strong as each individual link – RIM ensures each link in a multi-step process positively contributes to the overall realized capacity of the entire manufacturing cycle.

Process Monitoring

THE MOST ECONOMICAL WAY TO ADD VISIBILITY INTO HARD-TO-SEE AND DANGEROUS AREAS OF YOUR PROCESS.

  • Uses Power over Ethernet IP (Internet Protocol) cameras

  • Camera signal can be sent via mill network or dedicated ECS camera network

  • High compression H264 video format to minimize burden on mill network

ROLL INTELLIGENCE MAPPING (RIM)

USING ECS INCREASES YOUR OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS (OEE) BY TRACKING PROCESS CHARACTERISTICS FROM THE PRIMARY ASSET THROUGH VALUE ADD CONVERTING.

  • Web Inspection defect roll map for review and downstream machine control

  • Time stamp (sheet mark) the product during manufacturing

  • Read the mark at converting to provide proactive information on sheet quality

  • Correlate any process variable by time stamp from primary asset through converting
