In situations where the default on-screen elements provided are not suitable for the manufacturing process, custom on-screen elements can be created. New on-screen elements are typically created when different terminals require the same on-screen element but with different settings or when on-screen elements provided are insufficient for the requirements. To successfully create custom on-screen elements, you must have a good understanding of the different functions included in LYNQ. Functions ultimately determine how the user interacts with the workbench. Refer to the ‘Functions’ article before starting this section.

This feature is limited to creating on-screen elements for non productive activity only.
By using the quick setup feature you can easily:
