Cement Plant Automation - Reclaimer System
A cement plant wanted to change their reclaimer system from a manual to an automated one. Cotmac was hired to design, install and commission it.
We employed a Siemens Simatic Manager WINCC SCADA system using Profibus DP and Profinet communications. We used S7 400 programmable logic controllers for the drives. A key driver was to lower the labor costs of the system by eliminating as much labor as possible.
We built a low maintenance system with increased productivity and consistency. We saved them significant labor costs.
