Glass and ceramics
Depending on the application, glass and ceramic products must have specific properties. These are achieved through targeted heat treatment using industrial furnaces. The required processes must run reliably, precisely, and without interruption. Process reliability and guidance play an important role in ensuring they do.
As a specialist in automation and in-process controlling, we offer companies in the glass and ceramics area network-capable controllers that can be expanded with almost any type of I/O card or external module, and that have all the modern interfaces needed for seamless integration. We fulfil important standards such as IATF 16949 and ISO 9001.
Automation and redundant systems facilitate seamless in-process controlling
To prevent interruptions and ensure continuous in-process controlling, some systems are equipped with multiple controllers in the course of automation. If one of these fails, the process continues to run as usual.
The controllers monitor one another and trigger an alarm in case of a failure. Depending on the security level, maintenance personnel, the operations manager or even the plant fire brigade is informed to resolve the problem as quickly as possible and avoid expensive subsequent damage.
