Remote line on/off control. Error detection. Line start up and shut down messages to selected personnel.
Layout adjustments are easy by database interface. Customer based basic booleans according palletized products.
Curing oven passing trolley counts. Color changes, order mounts etc. can be´seen at first sight. Speeds, temperatures, errors are other typical values to display.
Factory projects include a lot of different kind papers and documents of which most of them has been stored to company secured WWW-server. All saved data will not only available during project time but also later on. Saved data like programs, drawings, technical documentation, meeting memos, etc. stay in order and they are easy to find.
Factory inspections and reposts including water treatment, electrical controls, mechanical constructions, plc-program updates and PC-program updates and support.
Control and power supply electric diagrams. PLC programming instructions and best practises to ensure proper start-up. Documentation and correspondence in English.
Crane main designs like hoisting, vertical guides and entry gate. Line electrical, power supply, inverter service and PC/PLC program support 1996-2012. Line taken down in 2012.
System designs, several project installations, programming and production start-ups. Problem solving when systems out of use.
Component technical inspections and proposals how solve existing problems.
Checkings, reprogramming and factory support for process water cleaning applications.
Relay and contactor based curing oven control problem solving. Connecting oven control to automatical conveyor line controls taking in count all situations which may require special attention to avoid production losses. Picture: Oven control checking (IUT).
Waste water filtration designs, project management and quality control checks. Personel advisor for correct use of designed equipment.
Customer's old process crane updated and transfered from Finlland to Estonia. Customer wanted to use existing Idek plc (~1988-1990). PLC reprogrammed. Still in production.
Old inverters and plc updated according existing equipment. Automated 7/24h computer SQL database quality control with high precision data measuring unit. Cabin from sub manufacturer.
Steel construction designs for Line (yellow/red) and middle heaven (light grey). Line design changes taking in count pull nose distancies. Old and new conveyor parts used to enable conveyor re-cycling. Orginal line built 1988. Detectors changed to inductive type. Some old conveyor parts kept because customer request - link chain power unit. Line still in production use.
Cabin installation and electric connections. project start up and service 1996-2004
Heavy wood industry machine wheel load study to improve product quality. New solutions for motor control, gearboxies and control systems.
Automated pallet delivery. Products ordered from SAP. Because quality control delivery order did change. All customer products on the same pallet so far product allowed to piled above each others. Then system autmaticly started a fresh palet. Fork lift driver unload positions. Escort memory control. Time <30 seconds/product. PC<->PLC communication consult for PLC programmer and control cabin manufacturer.
We work as a project gripping tool consult. Pilar hoisting unit with overload and underload limit switches and roller chain lifting design was done in the beginning 1990.
Computer HMI interface for storage crane. Production start up and user education.
Customer's firsts 3-axis portal robots for cam shaft palletizing to their storage boxies. New empty storage box piled over full layer of cam shafts. Awarded by 'Finnish key work of the month' on Finnish TV company MTV3.
Korean customer consulting to develop new type of palletizing application. All correspondence and Korean negotiations and local interaction (apr. 12 months) in English language.
Dairy storage system development to increase storage efficiency.
Pallets on their own pile. Different pallet sizes to improve transportation efficiency. Intermediate cardboards in two adjustable pile positions filled automaticly according user pile layout. Cardboads hold palletized product piles better in shape while transportation. No fixed pallet places, computer HMI enables easy teaching. Communication consult for PLC<->PC. Project start-up.
Automated crane computer control TEKES project started 1985. Scissors guide was developed for this project and computer controlled crane was presented at Hannover Fair 1987. Tooth band driven crane for long distancies was patented FI86291 17.2.1989. Picture project Sime made computer SQL based HMI product storage system and consulted control cabin manufacturer how make PLC program for Siemens S5 PLC.
Low headroom make possible to increase above locating show theater height. Spare piston crank shaft located on a turn table in the midle of 4 diesel engines. Empty place was for broken piston-crank shaft. Customers problem (pilar) was turned to winning solution how reduce piston sideway lifting. Shipyards first electric driven lifting system was built according Loyds register. English language documentation.
