Visy Technology will be introducing the latest iteration of its Nexus packaging line management system at Foodpro from 16 to 19 July in Sydney.

Designed and built in-house, Visy Nexus combines powerful software and device connection tools that link all the typical end-of-line packaging devices together.

Benefits to a user include the synchronisation of printing and labelling systems so date, batch and variety data printed direct on packaging is correct and matching to a source database.

Further benefits are realised when other packaging line devices are included into the same device management network.

Nexus can set inspection tasks into camera based vision systems and bar-code scanners for quality inspection and real time data collection.  

Most production and packaging lines in food packaging applications consist of multiple discrete devices all operating in independently controlled silos.

Nexus bring these devices together into a common control network which assists with data management, line automation, inspection and statistical reporting.

Visy Nexus supports OEE goals with a graphical administrator and operator dashboard showing production performance in real time.

Visy Technology Systems will showcase Nexus at Foodpro and will be conducting active demonstrations of Nexus in a simulated production environment.

Visy Technology will be found at Stand A12.
