User-oriented and intuitive – the new Rovema HMI

Packaging machine manufacturer Rovema, headquartered in Fernwald near Frankfurt/Germany, is celebrating the company's 60th anniversary by showcasing its comprehensive packaging expertise at interpack 2017. Exhibits cover a wide variety of industries and applications for powders, confectionery, pasta, snacks, frozen foods, dry fruit, coffee and liquids. Machines exhibited will also show the new Rovema user guidance which, in combination with the smart ROVEMA P@ck-Control software, ensures Rovema machine’s easy and safe operation. 

The new Rovema HMI features a dashboard that graphically supports operators throughout production. The intuitive touch operation enables the smooth adjustment of all operator inputs that are important for the packaging process: sealing time, sealing force, bag length and set number of cycles. Based on these parameters the machine automatically calculates the optimal operating settings. Clearly displayed graphic elements provide real-time information on key machine data such as infeed capacity, film run and production output at a single glance. All upstream and downstream machines can be integrated, monitored and  controlled from a central location. 

Operators can also arrange their individual favourites for key input controls and indicators. Illustrated instructions provide operators with a step-by-step guide for essential conversion and adjustment tasks such as format or product changes. 

The HMI also includes clearly laid-out screens where all required information and operative steps are grouped together according to tasks like diagnosis or running of new recipes. In case of a malfunction, operators immediately receive brief information on potential troubleshooting options as well as a graphical illustration to localize the fault. The new HMI's help functions are rounded off with the option to store your own notes or to establish direct contact with Rovema's support team.
