Sorting machine programming and adding of a safety film

Sorting machine programming and adding of a safety film

AI has been selected for two projects concerning special machines:

  • The first project entailed programming a pin-sorting machine designed to accept or reject pins based on size and diameter. After sorting, “good” pins are unloaded into boxes and carried away on a conveyor belt. Defective pins are unloaded into a discard bin.
  • The purpose of the second project was to integrate a machine to add a safety film to parts destined for the automobile industry. The machine was installed between an existing welding station and an existing unloading station. A.I developed an additional program to ensure the proper functioning of the entire installation and to add the new functions to the manual system control/command touch screen.
EDF - Automation of water intake at Ecombres

EDF - Automation of water intake at Ecombres

Given the difficult access in the winter of the water intake at Encombres which provides water for La Coche dam, EDF launched a project to automate the water intake.

This new facility, created by AI allows remote control water intake of river and optimized gate management.

The development of the PLC program has been fully tested in platform thanks to the implementation of the simulation of the operative part.

The automated system has been fully tested in platform to secure and facilitate commissioning.

EDF - "Renouv'Eau" project, IHM kit : support and training

The Renouv'eau project includes the renovation of the remote control system of hydro-electric plants. In this context, AI actively participates in the development of a standard of supervision.
EDF wishing to renovate more than 400 plants in France, this standard has been designed as a kit to be delivered to the company in charge of the renovations.
The SA-AMT kit consists in a standard supervision, tools to automatically generate synoptic data from the PLC, and a detailed documentation to assist project managers and developers.

EDF - "Renouv'eau" project, MSH - Sisteron, general services

Renouv’Eau project is dedicated to the renovation of remote control system of hydraulic structure of Sisteron.

This power plant which is composed of 2 similar hydraulic power units represents a bottleneck. It does not own unloaders that could permit to evacuate upstream water in case of problems on one or both hydraulic power units.

The good working of the power plant is critical and requires high reliability of programs.

In the framework of this, AI has acted as support to project leader for the renovation of power unit 2 during several months between 2012 and 2013.

EDF - ACOMA - modernization of the remote control of an hydraulic damn

EDF - ACOMA - modernization of the remote control of an hydraulic damn

The project of modernization of the remote control of the valley of Tignes was partly entrusted to AI.
This project consists in the modernization of the control system by coordinating two major sites that are Brévières and Malgovert. These two hydropower plants produce about 800 MW.
The architectural design of this tandem line is a first et the CIH (Hydraulic Engineering Center), and automation and functional were delegated to AI.
The commissioning of the pilot project will be carried out in part by us, as well as monitoring the proper functioning.
