Painting Line Automation
Spritztech AG (Switzerland)
Thanks to ALUPLANT Srl, the completed automation of a big painting line was realized near Zurich. The Simatic S7 PLC and the PC-based Simatic WinCC HMI allow to take under control all the sub-system componsing this big plant, including:
Overhead Power&Free conveyor with 40 transport units
5-stages pretratment tunnel
1 powder painting booth
Assembly & Test Bench
Ferrari SpA (Italy)
In collaboration with LAZZERO TECNOLOGIE Srl, the automation and operator interface of an assembly and test bench for motors suction collectors was realized for Ferrari SpA in Maranello factory.
The CitectSCADA interface guides the operator step-by-step during the assembly operations with on-screen text and images. Thanks to a dedicate Excel-sheet it's possible to customize the assembly sequence.
All the testing equipments (electronic screwdriver, wireless torque wrench, leak-test and functional-test devices) are connected with the interface for data collection.
The test-bench is connected via Ethernet to the factory MES database, sending all the data for traceability purpose.
Fumes Treatment Plant
Riva Acciaio (Italy)
In partnership with S.E.I. Srl and Alstom Power Italy, the automation for a steelworks fumes treatmnent plant was realized for Riva Acciaio in Lesegno (Italy).
The dedicated Simatic S7-300 PLC and the WinCC SCADA system control the suction, filtering and dust collection system. The flow inside the 2 chimneys is controlled by big inverter-driven fans. Each plant parameter is automatic selected from specific recipes taking in account the actual phase of the steel casting process. All the process data are recorded and shown in graphical views.
Compressors Test-Benches Traceability System
GEA Bock GmbH (China)
Based on Microsoft Visual Studio system, this traceability system was developed in collaboration with Lazzero Tecnologie Srl for the GEA-Bock GmbH compressors factory in Suzhou (China).
The system is able to collect test data from 6 different test-machines and to store them in a mySQL database, allowing the complete traceabilty of each single product. The communications with the factory MES allows to associate the compressor with the corresponding production order and to printout a test certificate simply by scanning its barcode.
