HMI Total Solution Enables Bus Manufacturers to Realize Smart Factory

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 6, 2017 9:45:00 AM

Industry 4.0 is gradually becoming a reality, and manufacturers are actively transforming their production process into intelligent manufacturing systems by leveraging Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT). The main concept of Industry 4.0 is to realize transparent vertical and horizontal integration from the production line to management level so as to increase productivity and efficiency. In other words, the resources available throughout the entire production process must be digitalized and networked so that they can be visible and completely available.

Automated Food/Beverage Production with Simplified Touch Control

Posted by Kari Grosser on Nov 21, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Project Introduction

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 headquarted 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.

Pneumatic Energy Saving & Efficiency System

Posted by Kari Grosser on Oct 10, 2016 9:45:00 AM

Introduction

Industrial forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces. The blows are delivered with a hammer (often a power hammer) or a die. In a hot forge the metal is heated and used to manufacture parts weighing from less than a kilogram to hundreds of metric tons. In an industrial forge air compressor consumes about 60% of the total electricity in the factory. By introducing a pneumatic energy saving system an awful lot of this electricity can be reduced. Once installed, this new system needs to be properly maintained to ensure that it reduces production costs.

Integrated SCADA Solution for Wind Farm Management

Posted by Kari Grosser on Oct 3, 2016 10:15:00 AM

Project Introduction

Renewable energy sources have become an important part of balanced energy supply. Like other green sources, wind is a suitable, clean, abundant source of energy that does not produce any emissions. Generally, each wind farm may install tens to hundreds of independent wind towers and cover an area of hundreds of square miles in harsh environments and only a few maintenance staff. As a result, the question of how to supervise a large number of wind turbines at the same time and how to ensure reliable and secure operation in each wind farm are the essential elements to manage the wind power plant is a major question. Advantech has been involved in the field of renewable energy for many years and is able to provide all kinds of hardware devices and dedicated software programs to assist system developers and wind power plant owners to implement a comprehensive monitoring system so as to achieve professional management and optimum performance.
