Automated Food & Beverage Production with Simplified Touch Control

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 15, 2018 11:15:00 AM

China's growing domestic market has resulted in a two-digit growth of food & beverage processing and packaging equipment and has drawn many companies around the world to explore this huge developing market, including TCP Pioneer Co. Ltd, a liquid food and beverage manufacturing/packing facility provider headquartered in northern Taiwan with its products sold to several top beverage brands in China. Over the years China's food/drinks packing industry has evolved from that of comparatively straight forward mechanization carried out by hand and electric or pneumatic systems to a higher degree of automation based on information collection and processing, and the need for automation products like Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) combined with the use of Human-Machine Interface (HMI) is soaring. Addressing China's market needs, about three years ago, our customer started to upgrade their products from those of more traditional mechanical types to the use of PLCs matched with Advantech's human-machine interface (HMI) product - WebOP - a touch panel display through which the operators at beverage plants can easily manipulate the machines and increase productivity and efficiency. The result is that our customer is selling their equipment units for twice the price of their original products; and the customers are dramatically reducing their use of manual labor and saving huge costs.

Advantech's Highly Integrated WebAccess Solution Optimizes Automatic Monitoring and Control Management at a Wastewater Treatment Plant

Posted by Kari Grosser on Dec 20, 2017 10:15:00 AM

A wastewater treatment plant is a basic infrastructure in modern society to purify wastewater created by homes and businesses. It operates 24 hours a day and wastewater treatment comprises multiple processes to remove solids, organic compounds and other matters.
