Greater efficiency, productivity, and sustainability in the glass industry can be achieved – with us as your partner. Find out how you can save energy and resources as well as cut operating costs, without compromising on consistently high product quality. With our in-depth industry expertise and comprehensive plant-wide automation concept based on industry standards, we can support you during every phase of your plant’s entire lifecycle. This offers pays off along the entire value chain and offers clear benefits for plant operators and machine builders.
The parallelization of traditionally sequential engineering process steps is the logical answer to growing cost sensitivity and increasing competitive pressure in the glass industry.
This is made possible by a fully integrated solution for planning and documenting plant projects. All participating systems are integrated via consistent central data storage. This allows many individual steps to be performed in parallel or before the previous step is completed.
At the same time, the error-prone and time-consuming management of multiple data formats and interfaces is eliminated. In this way, integrated engineering ensures a substantial increase in efficiency and flexibility while minimizing risks.
If the glass industry is to meet market demands faster in today’s market environment, it is crucial that setup and commissioning times for new production lines be as short as possible.
Virtual commissioning makes a substantial contribution: The simulation of commissioning using a digital twin of the plant already makes it possible to identify and correct any errors during the planning phase. Operators can also be trained on the digital twin risk-free during commissioning.
This enables error-free commissioning of the real plant and allows productive operation to begin much earlier.
Maximum transparency based as much as possible on data available in real time from the entire plant enables rigorous optimization of the entire process chain. Plant-wide automation creates this transparency, permitting sound decisions to be made on the basis of precise performance figures so that company performance can be continuously improved.
This makes it possible to uncover and correct adverse trends and deviations from target values very early on while also allowing predictive maintenance to be planned.
