Modern Textile Factories want data to be communicated seamlessly between their systems - to cut down on manual data collection, entry and analysis, and spend more time making data-driven decisions. We listened to our customers - and now Smartex.ai offers integrations between our AI-Enabled, CORE quality control systems and our customers’ information systems.
Through our Smartex API, Smartex can now talk with our customers’ key factory software systems, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). This facilitates a productive, two-way conversation:
Factory Systems → Smartex
Examples of Data Shared: Production Orders, Reported Fabric Type etc
Reduce manual data entry to Smartex system and free up operational resources
Greater data accuracy / reduced mistakes
Smartex → Factory Systems
Examples of Data Shared: Machine Stoppage Data, All Fault Types per Machine
Understand and analyze each Smartex CORE machine’s historical production and design better production processes
Improve your maintenance plans by analyzing each machine’s performance and stoppage data
"We are excited to offer this integration to our customers and take the next step in revolutionizing the textile industry," says Gilberto Loureiro, Co-Founder and CEO of Smartex. "Our goal has always been to provide the most advanced technology for detecting textile defects. By integrating with our customers' ERP and MES systems, we can offer a complete solution for quality control. This will benefit our customers and the industry as a whole."
To date, we have launched integrations with ten information systems for several of our customers, with more to come. Rúben Matos, Planning Manager at Familitex states that "Smartex has been an amazing partner, providing high-quality products and innovative solutions that have helped us reduce costs and waste while promoting sustainability. The CORE defect detection systems have ensured that our products meet the highest standards of quality. Their integration services have also significantly improved our day-to-day workflow, allowing us to work more efficiently and effectively. Working with Smartex means we can maintain our commitment to environmental responsibility, but also profitability.”
The integrations are enabled via a secure API and are compatible with the leading software systems used by our customers. Our solution targets common problems experienced in textile factories, but it is also customizable to meet individual customer needs. We will continue to expand these capabilities.
"Our customers have been eagerly anticipating this integration, and we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from those who have already implemented it," says António Rocha, Co-Founder and CTO of Smartex. "They have seen significant improvements in their quality control processes, and we are confident that this will be the case for all of our customers who take advantage of this integration capability."
Integrations is all about taking data out of silos and making it available to the right people in the right place. This improves productivity and prepares factories for the coming data revolution. This is the Modern Textile Factory.
