Protube is the tool designed for production planning on BLMGROUP machines . In its basic version named Express, starting from the workpieces programmes, it allows to define production lots, divided by section type and consisting of one or more workpieces, each with the associated quantities to be produced.It is possible to act on the workpiece manufacturing settings, and customise all machine options in advance. On the basis of the above choices, Protube Express allows an accurate production estimate, supplying:
the required number of bars according to the type of workpiece to be produced;
an estimate of the production time of the whole lot of a single machine;
possibility of exploiting the associated machine yard, balancing the production load.
Once the production batches have been defined, they are transferred to the machine and are ready to be launched.
In the more complete configuration, called Enterprise, even more important and useful functions are being added to the previous ones : you can configure a central server that acts as an archive shared by all the Protube stations. The same server collects the information concerning the current status from the machines and provides the progress of individual batches but also of the entire order.A single archive of all the programs, which is compatible not only with the laser cutting machines but also with the tube bending and sawing machines of the BLMGROUP becomes an indispensable resource in complex production scenarios, but it is also the best solution to control the efficiency of your plant machinery.
Protube can simultaneously manage the production of the laser cutting machines, bending and sawing machines of the BLM GROUP making way for multi-technology production scenarios with a level of efficiency that would otherwise be difficult to achieve.
