FILTRO
DESIGNED TO MINIMIZE
WASTE IN THE SLITTING
PROCESS OF ADHESIVE
PAPER & PLASTIC FILM
PRODUCERS

FILTRO minimizes the production
of scraps during the slitting of
customer rolls from the jumbo roll.
FILTRO also keeps the number of
set-up numbers under control
when pre-setting the slitter to
obtain the required rolls.

Brief functional description of Filtro

FILTRO is made flexible by using a set of
parameters that can be easily updated by
the user to influence the software’s  decision
process. FILTRO is also equipped with an
obtained solution editor. It is possible to
Intervene on the final solution to make any
required corrections. FILTRO requires just
a few seconds to obtain the solution
corresponding to an order lot, using a standard
personal computer. This allows for easy
creation and comparison of alternative
solutions (changing parameters automatically)
before choosing the best solution.

Filtro use advantages

INFORMA’s significant experience in the
installation of FILTRO in many film and paper
production systems allow us to confidently
state that it is possible to obtain significant
improvement. For example, in some cases we
have been able to document a scrap reduction
of over three percentage point. This means that
the package purchase costs are recovered in
just few months. Similarly, use of FILTRO has
a demonstrable effect on lowering the number
of setups that would be obtained by manual
methods.

Error spread is also dramatically reduced
through the use of FILTRO. The manual
generation of calculations and documents
can generate many mistakes. This situation
is well-known to planners. The advantages
FILTRO offers in this area should not be
underestimated.

Flexibility is increased with FILTRO. Production
program preparation takes just a few minutes.
This frees up time to deal with negative and
unexpected events such as modifications to
order modifications to orders. Similarly, it is
sometimes necessary to change the production
program due to problems on the systems.
With FILTRO, there is no problem; the program
can be reprocessed very quickly.

FILTRO offers a standardized problem solution.
This addresses the risk of manual production
programming, which is overdependent on
the presence and competence of a few key
individuals. This dependency represents a
system management weak point. FILTRO gives
a remarkable contribution to making problem
resolution independent of such risks.
