What Does the Kontrol4.0 Dashboard Show?

In today’s fast-paced and efficiency-driven business environment, having real-time data at your fingertips is not just a luxury—it’s a necessity. This is where the Kontrol4.0 dashboard shines, offering a comprehensive view of your pallet wrapping operations and delivering actionable insights that can significantly impact your bottom line.

The Kontrol4.0 dashboard is a part of an innovative IoT monitoring system designed to be retrofitted onto any pallet wrapping machine. It provides a detailed, real-time overview of various critical metrics:

Film Consumption Data: Tracks the amount of film used, helping you monitor supply usage and reduce waste.

Actual Pre-stretch Data: Displays how much the film is stretched, which affects both the quality of packaging and film usage efficiency.

Number of Pallets Wrapped: Counts the total pallets processed, allowing for easy productivity tracking.

Number of Rotations per Pallet: Indicates the operational pace and consistency.

Film Snap Count: Monitors the frequency of film breaks, which can signal issues with the wrapping process or equipment.

Film Consumption and Pre-stretch Tolerance Graph: Offers a visual representation of film usage against pre-set tolerances, helping identify deviations that could indicate problems.


Why is this Beneficial for Businesses?

Cost Control and Reduction

Understanding your film consumption patterns not only helps in monitoring costs but also in actively reducing them. By analysing the data, businesses can identify wasteful practices and implement more cost-effective processes.

Quality Assurance

The ability to track actual pre-stretch and film snap counts helps ensure that the packaging process adheres to quality standards. Maintaining consistent wrapping quality is essential for protecting goods during transit and reducing the risk of damage.

Operational Efficiency

Monitoring the number of pallets wrapped and rotations per pallet provides insights into the operational pace and machine efficiency. Businesses can use this data to optimize workflows, reduce downtime, and increase throughput.

Proactive Maintenance

By keeping an eye on out-of-tolerance occurrences and film snap counts, the dashboard helps businesses proactively address maintenance issues before they escalate into costly repairs or operational halts.

Benchmarking and Improvement

The dashboard enables businesses to compare performance across different lines and sites, setting benchmarks for improvement. This is crucial for multi-site operations aiming to standardize practices and enhance overall efficiency.


The Kontrol4.0 dashboard is more than just a monitoring tool—it is a strategic asset for any business that relies on pallet wrapping. With its detailed insights and real-time data, businesses can make informed decisions that enhance productivity, improve quality, and reduce costs. In essence, it equips businesses with the necessary tools to not just survive but thrive in the competitive landscape of industrial packaging.
