FOOD & BEVERAGE
Technologies: WEB, WINDOWS, IPC, PLC, MOBILE, RDBMS, RFID, BARCODE
Keywords: MES INTEGRATION, PDA, CONDITION MONITORING, TRACEABILITY, MOTION
Hybrid (Automation/IT) technological platform for cold storage and rapid cooking of ready meals and sandwiches. It includes machines and cloud/web/mobile applications
Technologies: WINDOWS, RTOS, SENSORS, COMPUTER VISION, MOTION CONTROL, SAFETY
Keywords: SORTING, TRACEABILITY
Hybrid frameworks capable to manage scientific-tailored algorithms to sort object classes and dispatch them in apposite containers at very high frequencies.
These solution are composed of a Windows based RTOS where sensors’ data are acquired at very high speed and RTC operations are performed. These system communicate (in hard-real-time) with hi-performance PLCs that manage the sorting operations through motion control technologies and hi-speed I/Os.
The PLCs are also provided with integrated and certified safety solutions.
3D Profiling & Image Processing Applications
Technologies: WINDOWS, PLC, LIDAR, SENSOR FUSION
Keywords: PROFILING, PROCESS OPTIMIZATION, QUALITY
Microtecna developed different profiling & Image processing solutions using 3D lidars and other scanning technologies.
These solutions are fully customized on customer’s needs in terms of accuracy, costs and performances.
They can be based both on industrial-grade devices or on embedded technologies and can be integrated in automation architectures or IPC-based architectures.
Technologies: DCS, PLC, RDBMS, LINUX, SENSORS, FIELDBUS
Keywords: PRODUCTION, QUALITY, CONDITION MONITORING, PDA, PROCESS CONTROL, ENERGY
Integrated production and energy monitoring system tailored to optimize consumptions and reduce product-related costs.
This solution gathers large amounts of data from third-party machines and PLCs and automatically correlates them in order to calculate KPIs that provide critical informations for optimizing production recipes in real-time and perform condition monitoring on single machines.
Control & Management of Flowpacks
Technologies: WINDOWS, IPC, PLC, RDBMS, FIELDBUS, SENSOR, ACTUATORS, SAFETY
Keywords: FLOWPACK, TRACEABILITY, MACHINE CONTROL, CONDITION MONITORING, MES INTEGRATION, PDA
A complete hardware/software solution tailored to manage and control different types of flowpack machines using a single software framework.
Based on multiple technological layers (PLC/SAFE-PLC/IPC), this system manages multiple automation devices and sensors to guarantee the maximum packaging performances and quality.
The operators interact with the system using multiple GUIs. The system stores all the process-data on an internal scalable database. The solution is integrated with an internal PDA module (developed by Microtecna) to guarantee full traceability of the production process and perform condition monitoring on each machine. The solution can be integrated with external MES systems.
Labeling Machine Control and Management System
Technologies: WINDOWS, IPC, PLC, RDBMS, FIELDBUS, SENSOR, LASER
Keywords: LABELING, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, MES INTEGRATION
Complete PC/PLC solution that manages label creation process using laser-marking technologies.
Once the labels are programmed and loaded from the MES (tailored by Microtecna), an hybrid system (PLC/IPC) controls an external laser and all related automation to create custom labels on aluminium plates. The sustem archives all the data on an internal database. Once each operation is finished all the data are synchronized with MES to guarantee fully traceability of the labeling process.
