Paper Converting Machine Co. (PCMC), part of Barry-Wehmiller, has launched Smart TOUCH HMI, a new human-machine interface available on Forte tissue converting lines.

PCMC’s Smart TOUCH HMI follows high-performance design principles to offer users a clean, modern interface and enhanced help features, the company said in a press release. The smart analytic capabilities are aimed at providing customer insights to improve overall equipment effectiveness. The Smart TOUCH HMI works much like today’s mobile devices with swipe functionality, enabling a short learning curve and increased productivity.


“We designed our new HMI with operators in mind,” said Jason Hilsberg, PCMC tissue sales director. “PCMC is always working to improve the capabilities and features of our machines for our customers, and more specifically, to enhance the experience of the operators. With simplified controls and navigation, robust help functions and easy recipe management, this new design will provide operators with a more efficient process to keep tissue operations running quickly and smoothly.”

PCMC’s Smart TOUCH HMI also delivers industry 4.0 tools, Hilsberg, said, with optional IoT connectivity, including cloud-based dashboards, production data storage and change logs that provide insights to ramp up production levels.
