Benefits of Graco InvisiPac remote monitoring system

Since it was first introduced on the market, the Graco InvisiPac Hot Melt System has revolutionized hot melt technology in the packaging industry. The innovative technology used in the InvisiPac system has been proven to lower manufacturing costs and waste, and significantly increase productivity. The secret behind the InvisiPac is its tank-less design and vacuum pull system, which means less time waiting for your hot tanks to heat up, dealing with maintenance like char removal and clogs in your hoses and nozzles, and overspending on expensive adhesives that loose their viscosity from overexposure to heat. But the InvisiPac has more to offer than better time management and less laborious maintenance work.

LineSite is the remote monitoring system that’s built right into the InvisiPac system, allowing you to track multiple hot melt application machines, no matter where you are, in real-time. This technology collects a wide range of information regarding the status and efficiency of your lines and processes, and significantly increases your ability to oversee your plant floor and monitor the collected data, affording you the ability to control adhesive and production expenses, and optimize your line performance. If that still isn’t enough to keep your eyes glued to this article, let’s go into a little more detail to put your mind at ease. 

1. Monitor Production Lines 24 Hours Per Day

LineSite collects and tracks information that is vital to the production value of your company. With the InvisiPac system, LineSite collects and monitors such things as temperature readings, adhesive volume used by each machine (in a given amount of time), and drop or download the operation data to your tablet, laptop, or smart phone. Because you can link the system to your personal devices, you can also monitor productivity from virtually anywhere, at any time of the day or night.

Unfortunately you won’t be able to pre-order your lunch before you get to the restaurant, but if there is an issue that occurs while you are eating, LineSite will alert your smart phone, and you can begin to resolve the issue right from your diner booth!

2. Save Money

The tank-less design and vacuum technology included in the InvisiPac system is already saving manufacturers tons of money on production costs, but with the LineSite technology also included, material and production expenses have gone down as much as 50 – 75% in many cases. LineSite uses comprehensive graph system parameters that provide you with visual data representation of performance metrics and history. This allows you to implement a plan to save on costs, and discover and resolve potentially costly long-term issues or trends before they can affect your productivity.

3. Simple to Use

Unlike many forms of production equipment that are difficult to use and prone to breaking down easily, InvisiPac and LineSite make maintaining high productivity with low costs as easy as making coffee in the morning. You don’t have to worry about dealing with slow, obsolete software; LineSite is simple to use and nearly does all of the work for you. Its intuitive user interface has a simple design that minimizes operation errors and requires less training time for employees. 

4. Less Downtime

With InvisiPac’s innovative tank-less and vacuum technology, lost time standing around waiting for your tanks to warm-up in order to start melting your adhesives is already reduced to 10 minutes or less. Having LineSite technology included in the mix means you spend even less time waiting, and more time doing. LineSite allows you to customize your email alerts, keeping you constantly informed about current and/or potential problems with your lines. This means you can remotely monitor and diagnose problems the minute they arise, or even before they occur, with the comprehensive operating data and built-in diagnostics program.
