During the most current meeting we had with C-Tex, we were given a script for the pre-installation video. The challenge that came with this was to translate this language into a creative language and trying to vision what the video can look like (see next post for storyboarding).
Should be less than 5 minutes
Thanks for buying c-tex colour, this video guides you through 2 things:
1. The information we need from you in order to manufacture c-tex colour ready for you
2. For you to prepare ready for the installation
So…the information we need.
Firstly, we need a photo of where you would like c-tex colour to be installed. Here are some examples…
Then we need some dimensions so we can fit c-tex colour to your machine
Here we show you the dimensions we need
Secondly we need to know the direction the fabric is flowing in: please indicate this with an arrow
Thirdly we need to know at which side of the machine you wish the PC and Operator monitor to be located
Also please take a photo of your length measuring wheel (if you already have this installed) so we can assess how to fit our encoder onto this
Lastly, machine construction: Please indicate the materials your machine is made of and thicknesses. For example, Solid Mild Steel 6mm thick, Mild Steel Box Section 2mm thick with section of 100 or Wooden Section 15mm.
Therefore, the photo you send us will need the additional information as shown here (photo with all details on)
We can then build c-tex colour to fit your machine
Onto the second step:
For the installation we need:
Network Access to machine area for us to connect the c-tex colour PC to your network
Electrical power: single phase
If you have not purchased a control cabinet from us and you will be providing yourselves this needs to be onsite when we arrive. We require minimum internal dimensions of Height: 1000mm, Width 600mm, Depth 600mm. The operator monitor can be mounted above the control cabinet of you can purchase a control unit with monitor surround.
If you have not purchased a PC from us and you will be providing yourselves, please ensure this meets the specification we list in our agreement document and is available when we arrive onsite
If you are running c-tex colour for an inline process, for example a continuous dye range or sanforiser or compactor we will also need a mains compressed air supply provided, to include a regulator and moisture capture mechanism.
When we arrive onsite for the installation we need to meet with your factory engineering manager and IT manager to present what we are going to be doing while onsite and what support we need.
We will also need a meeting room with a projector or large monitor in order to give a training presentation for 1 hour. For the training we will need your colleagues who will be: operating c-tex colour, analysing the results of c-tex colour and managing the implementation of c-tex colour.
