OTEC® for Powder Coating

No matter if your business specializes in small components, serial coating, or surface coating, regardless of the color spectrum or system type you use, and no matter whether your company works with or without rack management, integrated preprocessing or third-party processing, duplex processing or mechanical processing: OTEC® allows you to set up the processes you need for your area of specialization.

Dabei entscheidet der Anwender, ob ein Verfahren fest dem Artikel oder erst im Auftrag zugeordnet wird, ob ein Serienteil den notwendigen Arbeitsplan hinterlegt hat oder das Verfahren den Arbeitsplan erst beim Auftrag zuordnet. Dabei kann durch die Möglichkeit der Materialzuordnung bei den Arbeitsgängen auch direkt der Verbrauch des zugeordneten Pulvers nach Vorgaben berechnet werden. Die Verbrauchs- und Bestandsverwaltung von Materialien (hier von speziellen Interesse des Pulvermaterials) ist seit Beginn ein grundlegender Bestandteil von OTEC® und wurde speziell für die Bedürfnisse der Branche konzipiert. Dazu zählt unter anderem auch die Verwaltung von gleichen RAL-Tönen verschiedener Hersteller oder die Unterscheidung spezieller Kundenvorgaben bei Artikelzuordnung oder Auftragsanlage.

 

It is the user who decides whether the process will be assigned to the item itself or to the individual order, whether the necessary work plan is assigned to a serial part, or whether the process assigns the work plan only once an order has been made. Because users have the option of assigning specific materials to work processes, consumption of the powder in question can be calculated precisely based on the given specifications.

Consumption and stock management for materials (in this case, powdered materials) has always been an integral component of the OTEC® software suite. This includes the management of RAL colors from different manufacturers, as well as the categorization of specialized customer requirements for item assignments or order creation.

 

Because users have the option of assigning specific materials to work processes, consumption of the powder in question can be calculated precisely based on the corresponding specifications. Consumption and stock management for materials (particularly powdered materials) has always been an integral component of the OTEC® software suite.

 Thanks to the integration of warehouse systems, the integration of consumption data in procurement, the management of powdered materials, ordering recommendations, and the assignment of multiple suppliers, you always have a clear overview of
your powder stock – which enables you to optimize your purchasing.

 

The modular structure of the software enables the user to set up processes in the software precisely as needed to facilitate smooth operation within the organization. The user always has access to automatic processes and comprehensive information about systems, process control mechanisms, OTEC® quality management, as well as OTEC® DMS as an archiving system alongside a range of different histories. For many companies, maintaining a wide range of communication protocols for systems, powder warehouses, high rack warehouses, scales, and/or third-party systems via standardized or custom interfaces is both convenient and necessary. In addition, different interfaces are required for customers to transfer dispatch notifications, delivery schedules, invoices, etc. in accordance with EDI, EDIFACT or other standards, or customer-specific interfaces.
