These innovations from B&R are opening new opportunities for them to build and strengthen their competitive edge.
«In our opinion, India’s plastics industry is always keen to try new technologies and appreciates the benefits of our completely integrated automation solution. With the extraordinary scalability of our products, machine builders can easily and cost-effectively tailor their solutions to meet their customers’ demands,» says Dharmendra Patel, plastics industry expert at B&R India. «From control and HMI to drives, motors and safety technology, B&R offers the entire spectrum of machine and factory automation solutions and is always leading the industry with innovation.»
APROL to increase efficiency of entire plant
Faced with enormous cost and quality pressure, users are seeking solutions to reduce maintenance costs and downtime while optimizing availability and utilization. Production processes generate huge amounts of data, which helps generate valuable reports about equipment utilization, asset availability, productivity and energy efficiency. Real time data acquisition with APROL enables complete online performance monitoring and visual overviews that make it possible to track quality for the entire manufacturing process and plant. The ready-to-use solutions available with B&R’s APROL process control system for energy monitoring, condition monitoring, advanced process control and process data acquisition provide higher benefits and strengthened core competencies.
Optimum quality with machine vision
B&R will also be exhibiting its machine vision solution, which is fully integrated into the automation land-scape. «In the plastics industry, our vision solution is best for quick qualitative analysis where processes are complex. In the production process, our integrated machine vision system can be deployed for applications such as calibration, measurement, orientation, inspection, barcode reading, locating, positioning, prepro-cessing and comparison. «Defective products can be immediately rejected, which saves raw materials and makes it possible to rectify problems at the same level – resulting in increased quality and productivity,» says Patel.
All visitors to the B&R booth will also be able to experience ABB products and services for the plastics industry, which helps manufacturers achieve higher quality, comply with standards and become responsive to the challenges of global markets.
