The Future of Pharma Manufacturing

Posted by Kari Grosser on May 30, 2018 10:30:00 AM

Among the various types of manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers may face the greatest requirements of all in terms of product quality and attention to detail. Drug makers must, above all, strictly maintain the quality and safety of their products, as the release of any low-quality products could adversely impact consumer health and severely damper their brands and bottom lines. Given these concerns and related concerns about the security of their data and production processes, pharmaceutical manufacturers have been slower than other manufacturers to embrace and fully realize the potential of IoT technologies. Nonetheless, the power of IoT-based asset management solutions to increase production line efficiency and profitability is undeniable, such that drug makers who fail to innovate, risk being left behind.

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.

Increasing the Efficiency of Information Management with Seamless Data Integration

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 15, 2017 10:30:00 AM

Since the 1960s, the manufacturing industry has used computers to control cost and production to optimize company resources and efficiency. The rapid development of information technology has resulted in the creating of a wide range of information systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, manufacturing execution systems (MESs) and digital systems for managing customers, supply chains, products, manufacturing processes and equipment. However, regardless of the type of system, data and statistical analysis provides the basis for operation. And although many companies have implemented digital management systems, rather unfortunately, they still rely on manual collection and entry for data acquisition.
