An interconnected automation system is now an integral feature of any well equipped modern dye house. The process starts with the automation of dyeing machines through the system. and futher goes on to automatic transport and even to weighing systems of dyestuffs and chemicals. The automation system carries out systemetically the overall management as well as the organization of the dyehouse. A Dye house system can integrate all the products, PC-control systems or host-computers. This integrated approach also includes in itself order handling system, recipe formulation system for the all with the aim to maximize the dyehouse processes. This way the network of all the individual components within a dyehouse ensures a continuous and flawless data flow along with a clear cut structure and full flexibility in production.
Under the umbrella of a common operating surface, that operates on
state-of-the-art latest compuer packages the system transmits process
programs. These transmission is done strictly according to the pre-
arranged pre-defined sequence of the control unit of a dyeing machine.
Subsequently production recipes are transmitted to (a) weighing station,
(b)solving station i.e. ADS, (c)chemical dispensing unit (CHD).
Ready signals and request needs of any sort also gets exchanged
automatically between the color kitchen components and dyeing machines.
It is from the dyeing machine control units that all the set, actual
values and disturbances get transmitted back into control station. It is
important here to note that all the machines from other departments also
get directly connected only through a control system. Lastly this method
also allows, all the data to be signalled back into the central EDP.
