SIG c|touch 2.0
the future of industrial interaction
a patented touch hmi with timeline visualization for efficient production control in the food industry
fast and intuitive
The HMI c|touch 2.0 embodies the essential user interface of future production lines of the SIG combibloc systems.
It’s the human-machine interface, through which the entire production process will be displayed and controlled.
time line based hmi
The core of the novel HMI is a time axis, which makes the entire production process comprehensible and predictable.
A patented visualization form has been developed for this purpose. Now the user can read all the essential production parameters.
Through the interactive history, it enables the user to view past, present and future production events.
The easy-to-understand icons make it possible for the users -who are partly unfamiliar with the system- to operate the production equipment safely even after a brief introduction.
user login screen, with a minimum GUI elements for an intuitive interaction for the operator
timeline visualisation showing an current process failure and a system note in the past (yellow)
basic view of the running production process. each colour symbolizes a individual production material
production timeline showing a current failure and an two historic events that needed an interaction
timeline visualization with time picker to search for historic production parameters
historic timeline including the current production process (grey underlay) to ensure the overview of the production
