INGESOM adds new machines from plant 2 in the production control system already implemented in the company GRES DE LA MANCHA S.L., a leading manufacturer of glazed ceramic material with high strength, durability and low absorption located in Los Yébenes, Toledo.
The extension consists of incorporating new machines such as the dryer, the new klin, the loading table, the glazing line and the large and small format lines in the SCADA and Web applications. In this way all the elements are configured so that the production information is recorded in a single system, allowing the monitoring of the plant operation status and the supervision of the production in real time, what facilitates the detection of problems in the production.
In this new phase of GRESMANC’s production control, the most important point is to add the reading of the parts counters of each machine in real time in the SCADA application. Before, operators recorded the data manually and now it is an automatic process that reduces possible human errors and speeds up the collection of information.
In addition, the visualization of production data in real time makes it possible to compare the current data with an objective set by those responsible from the SCADA application, and based on this information they can make decisions to optimize the production of the plant.
The energy costs in ceramic production
In the ceramic industry, controlling energy costs is a key factor for the viability of any factory. In the current energy market situation, it is essential to have a tool that allows monitoring of the energy consumption of all machines and processes, in order to be able to know the energy cost of producing each […]
