Paperless Recorders provide data to multiple departments, assisting in speedy decision-making and improving operations and reliability. Nowadays companies face a growing number of challenges like:
- Reducing the total cost of ownership of their assets
- Improving efficiency and controlling quality.
As these increase the need that companies must deal with the growing amount of information needed to make informed decisions. To quickly generate information that is valuable to a user from a sea of data, recorders need to be intelligent. This means they need to have advanced information processing, communications capabilities, and useful software.
Further, paperless recorders eliminate the cost of ink, special paper, and pen which are essential for traditional chart recorders, and help users save costs. They are ideally suited for applications such as drying ovens, environmental monitoring, fermentation processes, flow monitoring, freeze drying, sterilization, heat treating, and power monitoring.

Steel production involves numerous process steps that can be laid out in various combinations depending on product mix, available raw materials, energy supply, and investment capital. Paper chart recorders have been the only effective method of recording process data for years. Since this is the most reliable method for collecting data, multiple processes were instituted and many inconveniences were put up with collecting, monitoring, and storing the data.
Many manufacturing plants other than the steel industry require data recording to both improve their process and comply with regulations. While paper recorders met their needs in the past, modern technology is available that delivers not only lower costs but also tools to improve decision-making and optimize their manufacturing process. These improvement opportunities include:
- Avoiding the risks and costs of non-conformances
- Creating improvement opportunities
- Discovering wall-to-wall financial savings
- Enhancing data analysis efficiency and speed
Apart from these opportunities, paperless recorders provide many advantages over traditional paper recorders. Many advantages are created just because the data is stored in an electronic format to allow for faster and more comprehensive data analysis.
Take a look at more advantages and features of Paperless Recorders
G-Tek offers a broad portfolio of data acquisition products to address most industrial recording needs. Its paperless recorders provide intuitive analysis tools and process visualization, faster start-ups and lowest lifecycle costs, and reliable process monitoring and recording. Users benefit from improved efficiency and decision-making, consistently superior product quality, and regulatory compliance.
Using paperless recorders saves time and money. There are obvious tangible savings such as the cost of consumables and analysis time, but there are other hidden savings not normally included in the purchasing analysis. These include archiving savings, better decision-making capability that can provide yield improvements, and the cost savings associated with eliminating non-conformances in the manufacturing process. Thus, going paperless saves time reduces non-compliances, and improves process quality, making it a smart business choice.
