STI (Service and Training by Internet)

BatchTron’s lifetime and reliability are by far the best in the industry.  This is not where we stop, however.  Our customers tell us – loud and clear – when they do have a problem.  In order to solve problems quickly and efficiently we have called upon the latest Internet technology.  Through your company network and its Internet connection, or even through a phone connection to the Internet, we can access your batching system and monitor its progress to pinpoint faults.  Even if the faults are caused by mechanical problems in the plant (90% of all faults are), we can see the resulting holdup and guide the operator to a successful outcome, anywhere in the world.

Our engineers can monitor or control the PC computer running BatchLink software, drilling down through levels of menus to check setup data, correct it and, most important, train personnel to understand the processes.  Together with a speaker phone, training sessions for groups can be conducted almost as easily as our trainer being on site.  The cost saving and convenience is obvious.  Scale-Tron makes your experience the best possible.
