Streamline and scale your production with GreyconMill, the industry’s leading Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software for paper, film, non-woven and converting producers. It monitors and controls your production processes, complementing the production planning functionality provided by X-Trim and opt-Studio, and serves as the system of record, providing full manufacturing traceability while eliminating paperwork on the shop floor.Learn More
GreyconMill™ is a new-generation, industry-specific Manufacturing Execution System. For a plant producing or converting sheet materials, GreyconMill optimally plans, executes and controls production whilst providing full traceability.
Register items as they are produced in all the stages of the process. Each registration links the input items and raw materials with the resulting items.
GreyconMill natively understand all the geometry behind the transformations in the process (winding, slitting, sheeting, coating, laminating, and more).
Innovative architecture allows tracking of any converting operation and modelling all processes in the mill easily. This functionality provides assistance in case of a customer claim.

Print labels automatically after each operation, with fully customisable information and layout, including barcode and RFID.
Designed with an extensible architecture to address the great variety of protocols and devices used in the industry.
Users can query historical data for analysis of machine availability and performance, as well as produced items quality. OEE performance is traffic-light colour coded as a clear visual cue.
Machine learning makes it possible to learn from data collected in the MES solution to make predictions, such as reducing product defects. The collection and storage of all of this information presents a huge opportunity to use machine learning for improving a mill’s performance.
This is powered by a lightweight data historian
Save time by downloading the bills of material directly from the scheduling system. Each operation may have multiple BoM’s, meaning one can be used for the pulp mix and another for the colour.
Plan the transportation of orders based on pre-set routes, while different loading, transportation and delivery calendars can be assigned to each route.
All material is tracked and the position recorded to allow operators (for example, forklift drivers) to know what material to pick up and where to leave it, regardless of its location.
All machines have events recorded and reason codes and comments can be left by the operators/shift foreman before leaving the shift.
Production and efficiency reporting per machine can be compared to ideal production, while recipes are used to calculate production costs.
A library of standard reports has been built into the system which can be changed to address specific needs, and more flexibility can be applied by users who can easily create bespoke reports.

Shift management can be used to plan employee and team work schedules by defining shifts and shift sequences centrally, helping you to reduce the effort required to determine employee capacity. Record operator skills and allow assignment of machines based on skills required to operate.
Collect values for quality characteristics, either from a real-time interface to process automation/data historian or by user entry. It can also record location-specific defects.
A lightweight and simple-to-use solution that utilises the power of SQL Server and stores data in a separate database to achieve optimal performance.
Utilise the in-built dashboard to display data from the historian, and analyse the information to help with diagnostics, troubleshooting, downtime tracking, energy consumption and production/cost accounting.
