OpenRC

Our software framework OpenRC (Open Robot Control) automates the production of data carrier (SSD, CF, Cfast, USB, CD, DVD, BD etc.) which are personalized and/or product-specific. We developed OpenRC as individual software that is paying close attention to the needs and requirements of our customers.

software framework OpenRC

Among flexible solutions, OpenRC is the first choice, as robot systems can be tied in to existing structures and individual process sequences. Because of this integration, the recording of data carriers takes place automatically, out of existing systems. OpenRC supports the production of single copies as well as copy jobs that are covering a marginal quantity or the mass-production of product specific media.

At a glance, the advantages of the software framework OpenRC are:

  • cost-effectiveness when in full operation
  • just-in-time productions
  • recording process is asynchronous
  • integration of copy stations into the production environment of the customer
  • enables the recording of several thousands of data carrier (SSD, CF, Cfast, USB, CD, BD etc.) a day
  • enables the parallel recording of different media types (e.g. SSD and CF)
  • verification after the copy process
  • logging of each copy job
  • optional: encryption of the data in customized container files
  • optional: test processes before and/or after the recording
  • deployment of users and robots worldwide, clustering of robots
  • parallel controlling of additional equipment possible (e.g. printer for brief instructions, a written guarantee etc. on paper)
  • scalable and expandable
  • can be used directly in production lines, with possible connection to different ERP systems
  • high system stability
  • remote problem solving or through a company worker directly on-site (at robot location)
  • clear data recognition and assignment to the relevant product (e.g. through barcode)

 

Production of data carriers in industry 4.0

It does not make any difference whether a copy job covers 2.000 SSD, a single copy on USB that has to be sent directly to a customer or the mass production of Cfast with product-specific content. OpenRC processes each copy job just-in-time.

Especially production plants that position themselves in industry 4.0 need flexible solutions for transmission and integration of data in a safe way. Forward-looking technology and intelligent software allow high variability of the content and avoid mixing-up of personalized data. Data carrier can be recorded with individual data that corresponds to the particular customer or business partner. Additional processes before or after the recording of the data improve the data security.

 

Reliable software for the recording of data carrier

Using Linux and open source components allows us to offer flexible, open and manageable solutions that have been tried and tested many times, especially in industrial environments. OpenRC software is distributed and used worldwide by robot clusters to reliably burn and print more than 100,000 individual media per year.

Apart from greater flexibility, cost reductions of up to 70 % compared to classic paper documentation can be realized. Additionally, there is the further bonus of being able to address end customers on a personal level.

Das Software Framework OpenRC bringt Daten aus unterschiedlichen Datenquellen (ERP-System, CMS, Datenbanken etc.) an dem entsprechend zugeteilten Robotersystem auf CD, DVD oder Blu-Ray. Auch Double Layer sind kein Problem.

 

Examples of use

SSD-CopyingModule.jpgEndless Memory Capacity – Car Multimedia Systems using SSD

Entertainment and information as well as the playing of the own data – these are the requirements placed on the automobile radio of the 21th century. To satisfy the request of a high data volume of these information systems, solid state discs are the ideal solution. Our copy system X⁵ is used to record data to SSDs. Therefore it is place directly in the production lines.

Data transfer is essential in nearly any area - no matter if the data has to be shared within the company or the data has to be forwarded outside of the company. Huge data files cannot be sent over mail any more. How then can sensitive data be exchanged?
