GRAND RAPIDS, MI  The powerTouch controller revolutionizes the interface between operators and production machines.

The HOMAG powerTouch controller arrives preprogrammed, reducing installation and set-up time. With its intuitive feel, the powerTouch immediately alleviates operator confusion which can be common with typical mechanical controller set-ups.

With tablet-like icons on a direct-touch screen, the HOMAG powerTouch allows a single operator to run multiple machines due to controller and interface consistency – including integrated help functions for added operator support.

•Simple navigation with tablet-like icons on touch screen controller

•A single operator can easily and confidently run multiple machines — even an entire line — as all controllers incorporate the same look and feel, with many identical icons and navigation buttons

•No programming is required; all programs are installed, ready to run

•Operator error is reduced, therefore reduces overall downtime - In the event of an operator error, the integrated user-help functions will assist towards immediate recovery

•Touch screens are very large and feature low-glare surfaces for improved operator comfort and use

•Customized Windows operating system offers a robust, stable, and refined platform

Stiles Machinery will exhibit the Homag powerTouch interface controller technology and other products at IWF 2014 in Booths 5053 and 5135.
