A complete hardware/software solution tailored to control pharmaceutical bags filling processes with a single software framework. Based on multiple technological layers (PLC/SAFE-PLC/ROBOTICS/PC/VISION), this system manages various automation devices (robots, handling systems, safety devices, …) to guarantee the maximum production output and safety. Quality is guaranteed by a multi-stage hi-performance computer vision system (tailored by Microtecna). The operators interact with the system using a PC-based GUI (CFR21/11 compliant) developed by Microtecna. Different optical sensors and lidars recognize operators presence and automatically manages safety and manual operations (using SLS and STL technologies). The system stores all the process-data on a local database. The solution can be integrated with external MES systems to guarantee fully traceability of the production process and perform condition monitoring on the line.
Fully extensible Hybrid Platform (PLC/IPC) capable to control and supervise factory HVAC in pharma contexts.
The system is entirely realized using modular industrial field components connected via deterministic ethernet-based fieldbuses.
A web-based application can be used from multiple sources as user interface (CFR21/11).
Each field node automatically performs process data acquisitions. The platform stores all the data in hi-performance databases and offers extended process control and traceability features, condition monitoring, statistical and quality analysis. This platform can be fully integrated with existing ERP/MES applications.
