Robot Palletizing Optimization
In this project, we increased the palletizing capacity of an existing FANUC robot by over 75%. We accomplished that by creating a buffer upstream of the robot, engineering of a new gripper with a better grip, reprogramming the robot and integrating its operation in the existing SCADA system.
Dosing System for Dry Building Materials
In this project, we created a new system for dry building materials management that is reliable and easy to support. We have increased the capacity of the existing hardware by approximately 30%, decreased electricity consumption by 10% and increased the dosing accuracy by several magnitudes.
Digitalization of Manufacturing with Ignition
In this project, we created a new SCADA based on Ignition with the main functionality to handle production and recipe management of dry building materials manufacturing facility. The new production management system has improved the production process by making its management much easier, more reliable, and more flexible by using the existing hardware.
Industrial Network with Wago 852-1305
We have built the first industrial communication network in Bulgaria based on the Industrial-Managed-Switch Wago 852-1305. The topology of the network makes a ring with a total length of 1000m and has 11 network switches. The Wago 852-1305 provide innovative Xpress Ring Reservation (less than 50 ms recovery) and JET Ring (less than 350 ms recovery). This increases the probability of failure-free operation of the network ring to 99.9%.
Roll Forming Machine Control
The micromachine control was specially designed to operate a roll forming machine. It is equipped with an Allen-Bradley Micro820 PLC and an Allen-Bradley PowerFlex523 VFD. The same concept can be used to automate of a new or retrofit machine, which has to operate under certain predefined conditions.
Connecting ERP and Scales with SCADA
In this project, the main goal was to connect in real-time the information about production orders and incoming deliveries information from the ERP with the real data measured by the scales in the production facility. We achieved that by creating a SCADA system based on Ignition.
