Optimize fine and specialty chemical industries with digitalized production processes
Transparent and flexible batch processes with Digital Enterprise
Optimal plant performance, continuous transparency, tailored quality, short development and set-up times – batch production of fine and specialty chemical products require a tremendous degree of flexibility. Benefit from the digital transformation to increase productivity, improve flexibility and the utilization of assets, raw materials, data and processes. Reduce your set-up and downtimes, and accelerate time-to-market for new products and processes.
Digital solutions für speciality chemicals
The focal point of innovation has changed, and most recently manufacturing innovation is directed toward implementing digital systems and solutions. Integrated manufacturing operations management enables smarter manufacturing for specialty chemicals.
Producing batches flexiblyThanks to our integrated and scalable solutions for intermittent production, you have everything working to your advantage when it comes to the flexibility, process efficiency, and product quality of your batch processes. Our modular automation solutions can be flexibly applied to suit your production methods and plant size – for efficient batch production even in rapidly changing market conditions.
Flexible process. Consistent quality.
Your batch process often requires you to switch from one product or recipe to another. Every single batch must be produced precisely to required specifications and with complete documentation while upholding product quality. Our batch automation solutions ensure high management and batch control flexibility with minimal set-up times. Batch protocols and the integration of inventory and quality data into your automation system provide the required transparency along the entire supply chain – even between different plants scattered around the world. This includes complete batch tracking and quality assessment, from raw materials to the filling and packaging of end products.
Complete batch tracking, documentation, and quality assessment, from raw material, to the reaction steps, all the way to the filling and packaging of end products – the requirements for a batch reactor are similar to those of continuous processes. By contrast, batch production depends on market conditions. It requires scalable solutions for extreme flexibility and modular automation. The reactor is the core component of a processing plant. Liquid substances are synthesized in the stirred tank reactor. The batch-by-batch performance of reactions requires continuous process monitoring.
With a digital twin, information silos in the plant are broken down and you can ensure that modernization activities and maintenance work are performed according to up-to-date documentation and relevant operating data. With integrated workflows, the digital twin can be kept up to date for the rest of the working life - the connection between the virtual and real production is closed.
