The advantages of a provider of complete automation solutions are particularly evident in the automation of brickworks. There are only a small number of companies in the world who can offer you a complete solution. The requirements of this application are:
- Weighing and mixing of the starting materials
- Processing of the material to produce individual blanks and setting of these bricks in packages for the drying process
- Drying and firing in a continuous kiln
- Palletizing and packaging in batches ready for shipping.
The entire bandwidth of automation technology is used here with PLCs, drives, control structures, field bus technology and sophisticated visualization systems. The brand-new SIMATIC PCS7 system is ideal for this application. Our customers consider it the most cost-effective basis for future brickworks.
The topic of handling is another important area of the ceramics industry. Siemens technology provides powerful solutions here too. An elegant solution is based on a SINUMERIK 810D, connected to a higher-level SIMATIC system over PROFIBUS DP with visualization on a SIMATIC HMI system.
