Cement Plant Automation – Packaging
A cement plant was looking to automate their packaging operations to improve quality and reduce costs. They wanted a system that generated reports on their packaging operation and one that was easier to maintain and debug.
We designed and implements a PCS 7 system with SFC Visualization for reporting on their operations. We used Profinet and Profibus for communication with PLC and SCADA devices for control and management. We built in web-based connectivity to allow them to navigate the system remotely.
Allowing a web client interface allowed management to check on their operation from anywhere. Their quality improved while increasing output because of the smoother and more consistent processes. Management greatly appreciated the ability to see information in one place which made debugging problems faster and easier.
