Supply Chain Phase


A data capture system that records data from every pack weighed on up to 100 checkweighers into a single database. This system is designed to collect data from every pack that has passed through a checkweigher made by Ishida and integrated metal detectors, generating graphic displays and reports with a wide range of uses.
For example, the information enables manufacturers to reduce giveaway and downtime and increase efficiency (including Overall Equipment Efficiency, OEE), rapidly paying for the system and making a real and lasting contribution to the bottom line. The data capture system subsequently enables the identification of cost saving opportunities, film wastage reduction, minimising product giveaway and improving production efficiences.
The data capture system, known as IDC3, has been developed by Ishida.
The content in this entry has been obtained from publicly available information sources only (e.g. press releases, website and trade press articles) and is subject to completion of a validation process with the technology supplier.

Potential Benefits

The main environmental advantage of this system is its ability to help identify and minimise film wastage in the packing process, but other environmental and cost benefits will also arise as a result of wider efficiencies achieved as a result of the data generated.

Intellectual Property

This is the proprietary technology of Ishida.

Consultant View

Any technology which improves understanding of the packaging line process has the potential to deliver improved line efficiencies and subsequently reduced environmental impact. The key is making best use of the information and insights gathered by the system.
