From ‘textile monitoring software’ or ‘textile production software’ to ‘textile productivity system’. The Knit PLUS 4000 from Matrix Controls Corp can handle many applications within the textile production environment – not just ‘textile quality software’ applications or ‘textile MES’ as it’s sometimes known in the industry. This is a list of our top FAQ’s which we hope will address your main queries. For any other questions please contact us directly through firstname.lastname@example.org
Since its inception, textile monitoring software solutions have been utilized in the textile industry to measure the efficiency of process machinery. As time progressed, the systems have developed to monitor raw materials including fibers, yarns, chemicals and dyes. Nowadays, textile monitoring software solutions data can be used to evaluate the performance of specific machines and operators which helps management understand the quality of the process, raw material, and ultimately the finished product.
It’s all about data. Centrally collecting and crunching real-time machine data to provide management the information they need to run the operation more efficiently.
Without textile production software, managers ‘run blind’ with delayed production information which eliminates a manager’s ability to react. This is particularly true if a plant is running dozens of machines, even more so if a manager is responsible for multiple sites.
Eliminating overproduction of a work order is the main textile productivity system benefit. This ultimately minimizes unnecessary material usage which has a direct bottom-line impact. Textile productivity system implementations also limit destructive machine operating conditions. Conditions can include machines running too fast or at a high temperature.
Both scenarios impact the reliability and life expectancy of the machines. If a manager is responsible for hundreds of knitting machines, this can be a significant area for concern and highlighted immediately in the textile monitoring software.
There are numerous benefits to a textile company implementing robust textile quality software / textile monitoring software. The automated systems can automatically stop knitting machinery from producing off quality fabric. Reduce overuse of raw materials and limit destructive machine operating conditions such as high temperatures.
MES, also known as a Manufacturing Execution System, is a generic term that applies to all manufacturing sectors. In textiles, it refers to the management of control of the raw materials, through the process to finished goods. MES is all about process control and the accurate and efficient execution of a production plan.
Matrix has been a family business for over 60 years. During this period, Textile MES has been custom-designed, in-house to suit almost every process involved in controlling textile machinery. Most Matrix Control Corp customers are within the Textile industry; however, the company has diversified to include allied industries such as chemical and dye producing companies which also benefit from MES / textile monitoring software. The MES System branded as Matrix Knit Monitoring originated in 1985 and the company has built on its knowledge and reputation since then.
The textile monitoring software has been implemented at some of the largest textile companies in the world (Hanes Brands, Fruit of the Loom, Gildan Activewear, Milliken & Company). Matrix also has a lot of smaller independent textile companies located around the world.
Remote software support is available 24/7 (supporting the customer base which is spread across many time zones). Matrix supports thousands of knitting machines worldwide and provides backward-compatible Textile MES to support older, less compatible customer knitting machines.
