Xsys unveils Catena ProServX

New software development by Xsys provides a unique access to plate processing data.

Xsys has launched Catena ProServX, a cloud-based, real-time equipment monitoring tool for maintenance and quality control during platemaking process. 

By precisely measuring equipment performance, energy consumption, and consumable usage, ProServX empowers customers with insights into their operations. With this data, decision-makers can make informed, data-driven choices to optimize OEE and ensure the highest quality standards, while minimizing waste for sustainable plate making. 

Bert Eeckhout of Xsys, said: ‘Catena ProServX, the latest innovation from Xsys, represents a significant leap forward in digitalizing equipment management and KPI reporting. It is a connected, cloud-based solution that delivers immediate data about asset performance and consumable usage according to industry 4.0 principles. This new software development, provides a unique access to plate processing data which until today was not available. Now, with the launch of ProServX customers can access and use this data to optimize their operations, and make fact based decisions.’ 

ProServX provides in-depth production reports at regular intervals detailing the number of plates produced during the specified period, along with the materials consumed. Alerts are sent out if any abnormal activity is registered, such as excessive solvent usage or a malfunctioning lamp, enabling customers to engage in proactive error management and predictive maintenance actions. 

Another standout feature of ProServX is its ability to generate individual reports for each job with detailed insights into every aspect, from laser exposure to plate finishing. With this level of traceability, platemakers can ensure 100 percent quality control, promptly identify and resolve issues, and optimize resource allocation for enhanced efficiency and productivity, according to Xsys. 

The data provided by ProServX accelerates remote service capabilities to new heights and reduces unnecessary travel for technicians.  

‘Catena ProServX represents a holistic approach to remote equipment management by offering advanced statistics, comprehensive reporting, and unparalleled support. It is not just a software solution but a real catalyst for improving production performance, and achieving sustainable business success in today’s dynamic landscape,’ concluded Eeckhout.
