Quality control system in food industry

Written by Kang Abu on 1:29 PM

Quality control system in food industry (screenshots)Production and storage process in food industry are subjected to specific laws related to quality control; the quality control system based on the Winlog Pro software SCADA platform has been successfully applied in many sectors of food industry; actually it gives the possibility to comply with requested quality control criteria limiting both the investment cost and the production loss due to the installation of the system.
The system provides a continuous monitoring of all the significant variables of the process and generates quality control reports with graphical trends that certify the compliance of the production lot; the system also certifies that the storage process doesn't affect the quality of the stored product and doesn't cause any modification of the original characteristics. Any abnormal condition in the production or storage process is promptly detected and signalled with a local alarm; in case of unattended environment, a SMS can be sent to the cellular phone of a maintenance staff operator.
All information generated can be made available to one or more Client stations (local or remote) linked via a TCP/IP protocol.

Winlog Lite, free SCADA HMI system

Winlog Lite is the "Entry level" version of the SCADA/HMI software Winlog Pro offered by Sielco Sistemi to its customers to allow an evaluation of the potentiality and the simplicity of use of the package; Winlog Lite is also a powerful and low cost solution for creation of small supervisory applications.

Winlog Lite makes available most of development tools and functions provided by the Winlog Pro software package, but limits the possibility to develop and to run applications up to a max of 24 tags. Winlog Lite does not include Symbol Factory library and Web Server support.

Winlog Lite can be executed both in Demo mode (without need of registration) and Full mode; in Demo mode, communication with external devices and sampling of external tags automatically stops after 15 minutes (if required, it can be restarted manually); in Full mode communication goes on without any limit of time.

To run Winlog Lite in Full mode, it is necessary to buy a license "Winlog Lite" and carry out the registration procedure; "Winlog Lite" license is valid only on the computer used to carry out the registration procedure and can't be transferred to another computer.

How Asset Management Saves in a Down Economy

Written by Kang Abu on 8:44 AM

Plant Asset Management systems let you squeeze more out of your industrial equipment by reducing unplanned stoppages and unnecessary maintenance tasks. Estimated savings in the U.S. could exceed $60 billion.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know something was going to break before it actually brought your production line to a grinding halt, killing productivity, throwing off schedules and possibly compromising delivery deadlines? Now think about how nice it would be to be able to put that precognition to use and apply a little predictive maintenance to not only keep things running smoothly, but to keep them that way for longer before having to replace expensive equipment.

This is the promise made by Plant Asset Management (PAM) systems.
PAM systems provide timely information to help maintenance and operations improve asset availability, reducing the time required to maintain equipment and optimizing their efficiency. PAM systems rely on a combination of diagnostic software and hardware tools that perform automatic, real-time monitoring and alarming of asset-related key performance indicators. If something starts to fall out of acceptable parameters – such as a pump starting to vibrate more than it should – you are notified and can take predictive rather than preventative or corrective action. “Many people think PAM is a maintenance function, and it is that, but it’s also much, much more,” says Chuck Cotton, a spokesperson for Siemens Energy & Automation where he is deeply involved with the company’s PAM offering. “PAM enables you to squeeze a lot more blood out of your rocks.

“In addition to a higher return on assets,” he adds, “you can reduce the number of unscheduled stoppages, you can react more quickly when you do get a disruption that translates into a lower mean time to repair, you get decreased maintenance costs and ultimately improved productivity out of your plant and improved ROI from your assets.”

With many manufacturing operations freezing capital investments until the economy rebounds, it has never been more important to get more out of your existing investments, a contributing factor to remarkable market growth for PAM solutions.
According to Wil Chin, a research director who follows PAM at ARC Advisory Group in Dedham, Mass., the global market for PAM systems grew by an average of more than 13 percent a year since 2006, eclipsing the forecast of 10.8 percent.

“Today’s PAM systems offer end users a solution appropriate for both good and bad times,” says Chin, the primary author of the recent PAM study, Plant Asset Management Systems Worldwide Outlook. “The value proposition for PAM systems remains intact and – when combined with safety and other drivers associated with the decline in the workforce – PAM adoption will not fall off nearly as much as other automation investments.”

Chin believes that this resiliency is founded on PAM’s ability to help manufacturers do more with less. “By providing information at the right time and in the right context, workers work smarter.”
Despite this prediction, things are not necessarily all rosy for the PAM vendors.

“End users understand that PAM can help them to predictively diagnose the health of critical assets, but don’t always make the connection to how this can help improve profitability when resources are scarce and demand for their products is declining,” says Chin, who adds there is still a lot of confusion around PAM systems for end users and even where there is a clear understanding a deployment requires significant domain expertise. “Suppliers and end users need to educate themselves about the benefits that PAM systems offer to help them survive the economic contraction.”
That said, the impact can be profound.
In his book An Introduction to Predictive Maintenance, Keith Mobley claims that, depending upon the industry, maintenance costs can run anywhere from 15 to 60 percent of the cost of goods produced. He also suggests that up to a third of all maintenance expenditure is wasted because of poor or unnecessary maintenance. When he wrote this book in 2002, he estimated this translates to a loss of more than $60 billion per year in the United States.

“Predictive maintenance is really the ideal since it schedules specific tasks when they are actually required by the equipment rather than when someone estimates they will be required,” says Cotton. “Preventative maintenance, on the other hand, is about scheduling work whether it’s needed or not based on hours of operation or number of operating cycles. This leads to equipment being replaced while it still has some life left and pulls your skilled human assets off other more productive tasks.”
In the past, operations and maintenance teams have each had their roles to play in helping companies get the most out of their plants, but they have traditionally come at the problem separately. PAM brings them together, unifying and organizing their efforts.

“Traditionally, the maintenance organization was primarily concerned with asset availability, while operations was most concerned with asset utilization,” says Cotton. “These two functions are often at odds with each other. PAM enables you to manage both these factors in a holistic manner, which is more effective from a strategic business perspective. PAM systems provide the intelligence required to help you balance asset availability with asset utilization, helping you get the maximum possible productivity out of your plant.”
Getting started with a PAM strategy isn’t as complicated as it may seem. There is no need to launch into a plant-wide revolution right away, says Cotton. “Start with a criticality analysis. Look at what has the most impact on environment, production and safety. Start small, focus on a couple of projects, then expand, hopefully, to plant-wide strategy.”

At the core of any PAM strategy, adds Cotton, is integration. “It is important to integrate all the major components so they can be monitored and you can draw meaningful diagnostics from them. At Siemens, our Totally Integrated Automation approach delivers these elements – tying all the individual pieces together through networking then providing simple visualization and alarming through HMI tools, ultimately giving you more control over your operations.”

50th Anniversary of Sinumerik

Written by Kang Abu on 8:42 AM

When Siemens introduced Sinumerik in 1960 as the industry’s first numerical control (NC), customers immediately realized a dramatic improvement in their productivity and flexibility. These end user benefits helped put Siemens on the map and provided a foundation that helped vault the company to the pinnacle of the mechanical engineering industry. Now celebrating its 50th birthday, the latest evolution of Sinumerik still delivers customer value making it one of the longest serving brands in the world.

“Sinumerik has made Siemens the leader of technology and innovations in the CNC field for fifty years,” said Uwe Frank, CEO of Siemens Motion Control Systems. “It started with the first NC, then progressed through the CNC with a microprocessor to the first CNC-integrated safety solution. We’re continuing to invest specifically in research and development so that we can keep on writing this success story in the future.”
The first path control was developed on the basis of separate electronic components. Shortly thereafter, versions 200 and 300 delivered control for turning, milling, grinding and nibbling, and for electro-hydraulic drives. Sinumerik 500C, the first computerized numerical control (CNC), was introduced in 1973. Advances in microprocessor technology enabled Siemens to offer a DNC network for universal program management and transfer for the first time in the mid 1970s. Sinumerik System 8 appeared three years later, a CNC with multi-channel capability and an integrated programmable logic controller (PLC). This innovation made the device suitable for drilling and nibbling machines in addition to turning and milling.

Meanwhile, Sinumerik was also getting smaller with Sinumerik Primo – a compact CNC, no bigger than a shoebox. Application-specific operator interfaces and graphic programming functions were introduced in the early 1980s and by the middle of the decade the principle of “openness” determined the design of subsequent CNC generations with machine manufacturers designing their own interfaces and adding their own images and menu trees. In the mid 90’s Sinumerik 840D, a CNC for the high-end of the performance range, introduced a digital drive link and an open NC kernel, which enabled the integration of software components and safety became a factor, with the launch of Sinumerik Safety Integrated, the first CNC-integrated safety solution. The years that followed saw the introduction of workshop-oriented graphical programming interfaces and the expansion of the Sinumerik family to include web-based condition monitoring and mechatronic support for machine simulation and virtual prototyping.
In 2005, Siemens presented the Sinumerik 840D sl, an open and innovative CNC for up to 31 axes, and the Sinumerik 802D sl, for turning and milling machines in the lower and mid performance ranges. Following that, Siemens expanded Sinumerik to deliver workpiece machining solutions for the entire CAD/CAM/CNC process chain.  At the 2009 EMO trade show for machine tools, Siemens exhibited the compact Sinumerik 828D CNC as a solution for the JobShop market, Sinumerik Operate HMI as a standardized CNC HMI platform, and also the Sinumerik MDynamics technology package for high-speed / high-accuracy milling applications.

Today, customers use Sinumerik to network all areas of their production operation in order to exchange data between the development and design departments right through to actual manufacture on the CNC machines. Modular and scalable, contemporary Sinumerik automation systems incorporate multiple products for machine tools to continue to bring innovation and efficiencies to end user applications, whether deployed for use in standardized turning and milling machines, as a powerful drive-based CNC controller system, or as a PC-based solution.

“The evolution of Sinumerik really reads like the evolution of the industry, beginning with what we see today as somewhat simplistic capabilities and growing into today’s highly customizable, fully integrated open-architectures,” added Frank.
