Software Simplifies Panel Tracking Process

AXYZ CNC Routers has unveiled a new panel tracking system as part of its newly designed PANELBuilder CNC Router solution. The PANELTracker Management System is an intuitive new interface that eliminates the need to manually affix labels on panels or mark them with sharpies. "As part of a new software bundle, the PANELTracker is a more cost friendly solution than third party inventory software. Quick and easy to use, it keeps track of all panels as they move from one stage of production to another," said a company spokesperson.

The PANELTracker works in conjunction with the PANELBuilder system as part of an all-in-one solution, which includes:

  • Windows 7 PC (or higher)
  • PANELBuilder software upgrade
  • 2D barcode reader
  • Automated label printer.

It is designed for two types of users-project manager and general/operator-throughout four key stages of production:

  • Project creation: The project manager designs and cuts the panels to customer specifications. Once complete, the file is exported into the PANELTracker system.
  • Cut: The operator uses the file to cut panels on a PANELBuilder machine. Once this is done, the file is scanned and marked as "cut" in the system.
  • Fabricate: Once the panels are cut, the operator uses the file to add extrusions to the panels. The panels are scanned again and then marked as "fabricate" in the system.
  • Package/ship: To prepare the panels for shipping, the operator scans the panels, updates the file and marks it as "packed." At pick-up, a slip is generated for the packing crate and the status is changed to "shipped."

At any point in the process, a damaged or defective panel can be scanned and identified. An email is then sent to the project manager with the information and the data file needed so that the panel can be easily reproduced.
