Visual management - pharmaceutical sector

Visual management - pharmaceutical sector

AI was mandated to provide a visual management system for a pharmaceutical sector company. The information displayed concerns raw production data but also real time user configurable performance index. All these informations are followed per hour, shift and per machine. The system greatly simplify operator’s tasks by centralizing all the necessary figures on one (or more) big screen. The system also provide daily archiving ability with one year of informations.

Programmation and commissioning of an automated sawing line of aluminium slabs

Programmation and commissioning of an automated sawing line of aluminium slabs

AI was selected to develop the program and perform the commissioning of an automated sawing line of aluminium slabs (up to 24 tons) for a final customer in China.

The whole programming of the PLC, safety PLC and field equipment communications protocol has been realized on this project.

The installation, containing a conveyors line, a manipulator trolley, a band saw, and a pin marking unit, is managed by a S7-300 Siemens PLC.

Installation sizing:

  • 300 Inputs/Outputs
  • Multiple encoders and measurement lasers
Functional analysis for the revamping of an automated sawing line of aluminium slabs

Functional analysis for the revamping of an automated sawing line of aluminium slabs

AI was selected by a manufacturer of specialized equipments for aluminium industry, to realize a functional analysis for the revamping of an automated sawing line of aluminium slabs, for their customer located at Dunkerque.

This functional analysis will be used to develop a new PLC program, which will be realized by the final customer.

The equipment is made up of a tilter for slabs loading, a storage area managed by a trolley, a conveying line, a band saw, a crops manipulator and several marking units.

Development of SCADA systems for sawing installations

Development of SCADA systems for sawing installations

AI developed for a company from aluminium sector some SCADA systems of sawing installations.

Our work was to put in place some HMI allowing from several panels:

  • Parameters entries as products tracking in upstream sawing line.
  • Installation management in maintenance mode
  • Displaying of working status as faults of miscellaneous devices (motors, cylinders, …)

In fact, this sawing line can be driven by a touch and key mobile panel that allows doing maintenance by plugging it at several places of the installation.. Moreover, sawing data can be modified and/or read from an input touch panel. 

Program of an automated conveying and sawing line of aluminium ingots

Program of an automated conveying and sawing line of aluminium ingots

AI has been selected to develop the program for an automated conveying and sawing line of aluminum ingots, conceived and commercialized by a company of this sector for their Indian customer, a mining company.

The installation, contain conveyors, a band saw, a marking unit, and a trolley.

The main project difficulty was the communication between all devices : the field devices, and connection of the various equipments (Ethernet), and the exchanges between both PLCs.
