'Validator' Ensures Quality Control for Plastic Injection Machines

Schlemmer Associates develops a monitoring application to alert plastic injection machine operators to potential quality issues immediately.

No machine operator wants to see the result of a machine error after the fact. The ability to monitor a process as it happens and guard against problems is a cornerstone of an efficient production line. That’s why the well known Japanese manufacturer of the machine developed for Toyoda Gosei (TGKY), contacted Schlemmer associates to develop an application that would assist operators of a plastic injection molding facility in Lebanon, Kentucky, monitor their injection molding process in real-time.

A Better SCADA System for Textile Machines Helps The Turkish Textile Industry Stay Competitive

The dying and knitting of yarn for textiles is a process that has existed for thousands of years. This process has long been machine automated, but with advanced SCADA software that provides an intuitive development environment for robust monitoring and data acquisition applications, it’s possible to follow that process through every step from raw material to finished product. Using a SCADA system that gathers data from multiple textile stenter machines, Ekoten Textile, located in Izmir, Turkey, is able to record and compile data from every stage of their textile production process. With this data, Ekoten Textile can compare everything from output by machine, to the quality of the finished product.

Thomson Technology Generates Huge Time Savings with InduSoft

Any facility is only as reliable as its power source. The equipment we depend on to ensure we have electrical power must be robust, and reliable. That’s why the equipment produced by Thomson Technology is so critical to power generation infrastructure, as is the HMI that connects those systems to their human operators. When Thomson Technology began to research a better development platform for their flagship Series 2400 switchgear, they needed to find a product that would be as reliable as the equipment they produce.

Graham Engineering Reinvents Blow Molding Machine Interface

Plastics are ubiquitous in our lives. They act as packaging for nearly every good we purchase. They are present in many of the products we use daily, including the cars we use for transport and bottles we drink from. Today, plastics are shaped using blow molding equipment designed to create a variety of shapes and sizes, using plastic resins with varying mechanical and optical properties. These machines, including the extrusion blow molding machines designed by Graham Engineering Corporation (GEC) are taking advantage of the top HMI development technology in order to give operators more control of this advanced equipment.

Precision Pumping Systems Helps Feedlot Feed Millions

The United States is a major exporter of food, particularly beef. Feedlots, like the Simplot Land and Livestock feedlot in Grandview, Idaho is where much of the livestock within the United States is finished for domestic use and export. At the feedlot, cattle and other livestock are brought up to the proper weight for slaughter. Weight based pricing formulas are generally used to determine the worth of livestock when they are sold from the lot, meaning that ensuring the health of the animals will help a feedlot keep acceptable profit margins.

Retel Neuhausen AG Helps Merck & Cie Meeting New, Tight Standards

In the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical integrity of the compounds may rely on the strict control of hundreds of variables, from air humidity and freezer temperatures to mixing times. Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) may be used in anything from prescription drugs to cough drops. Other high-purity substances rely on strict environmental control for production. Because these controlled substances and pharmaceutical compounds must be perfectly consistent across each batch, records of every aspect of the process must be maintained, from storage to mixing and processing, to transport and delivery.
