Domestic Beverage Plant - Filling Line Monitoring System

 

Overview


The system boost production efficiency as a production control system performing monitoring and operation of filling lines in a beverage production plant.

The system is also designed to be flexible so that the customer can make their own modifications to the system when improvements are required due to changes in equipment operation or otherwise.

Background to Introduction and Challenges Faced

The customer wanted the ability to make changes to screens and logic on its own for a newly installed filling line monitoring system. DIASYS Netmation was adopted in recognition of its flexible system modification features.

Effects of Introduction

With introduction of the system, the customer can change graphics and add communication points with systems produced by other companies on its own, leading to lower system modification costs.

In addition, utilizing the remote monitoring features, the customer can perform monitoring and operation from a building remote from the site, allowing equipment abnormalities to be quickly handled, and supporting efficient plant operation.

Monitoring and Operational Features

Batch Monitoring

Multiple on-site manufacturing units controlled with PLCs produced by other companies are monitored at once.

Based on the signals read from each PLC, plant operation can be centrally controlled, including the configuration of production plans and reflection in management information.

Alarm Display

When an equipment malfunction occurs, a real-time alarm is displayed on the monitoring screen, supporting early discovery of abnormalities. A per-device history of alarm triggering and restoration can also be displayed.
