Voith ComCore platform to allow integration of its entire QCS product portfolio

August 19, 2013 - 14:19

HEIDENHEIM, Germany, Aug. 15, 2013 (Press Release) -ComCore is a software platform from Voith Paper that will integrate its entire QCS product portfolio in the future. With this common platform, it is now even easier to deliver solutions that are exactly coordinated with the needs of paper producers. ComCore is already in use with more than 15 paper machines worldwide, in various paper grades. The customers are very satisfied and are impressed by the advantages that ComCore offers.

The various Voith QCS products such as OnQ ModuleJet, OnQ FormingSens and the Voith LSC Scanner are consolidated in ComCore. ComCore thus offers, with just one click, a way to perform all necessary interventions and call up all necessary information about the various components and applications of the quality control system. Other products can be integrated at any time by expansion of the software modules. The start-up times are thus shortened. The uniform platform architecture also reduces the training needed for service personnel.

In developing ComCore, Voith relied on established standards in the industry such as OPC for communication and combined them with innovative technology such as HTML5. As it is operated with a web user interface ComCore is as easy and intuitive to use as possible. ComCore can also be operated with commercially available tablet PCs, which increases the mobility and flexibility of employees. Time-consuming installation is not an issue with these operating stations, as the ComCore user interface is simply called up via Internet Explorer.

If work is undertaken directly on a part of the paper machine, the corresponding personnel thus keep all other machine settings in view on their mobile tablet PCs and can better react to changes. Thus ComCore additionally provides a clear safety advantage for the individual employee.
