The control system is implemented with Siemens S7 PLC system and touch screen operating panels. The dosing is done automatically according to the chosen production plan or recipe. The system will also create a batch report detailing materials dosed automatically and also materials added manually. The reports are saved in a database and are easily retrievable for later use.
Automatic controlled production brings many benefits in the production process including:
- accurate dosing to ensure a uniform quality
- speed and flexibility
- real-time monitoring
- reduced raw material losses
- reporting and tracking of dosed quantities
The system’s automatic pre-correction of the dosage ensures that the dosing result is always correct. If for example, the characteristics of a component change, the system adjusts the dosing to match the changed characteristics.
