Optimizing production processes

Optimizing production processes

The application with its user license was installed on a virtue machine so that the old SCADA could migrate without causing any delays or downtimes in production. This decision turned out to be a winner and permitted Svimisa S.p.A. to continue production while the Matica technicians proceeded with installing and test running the application’s functions.
The process plant system is divided into different sections for each process. Firstly, it prepares water taken from different sources, according to demand and cost, and then passes it through a clarifier during the extracted slurry presser process. Afterwards, it is used in the screening and transformation process, which involves screens and other dedicated machinery, to transform the aggregates extracted from the quarry into the end product.
The Movicon.NExT SCADA communicates, through the Ethernet network, with an Omron CPU equipped with an input and output card. Furthermore, another two remote nodes are located at a distance from the CPU and each other and are interconnected on a Profibus network.

In order to make full use of the advantages offered by modern automation systems and above all their flexibility, we chose to migrate to the Movicon.NExT platform

Fabio Fraternale, Technical Director of Matica S.r.l.

The Movicon.NExT architecture is particularly appreciated for its performance and ability to combine reliability with a low usage of machine resources. This is what made it possible to install it on the virtue machine that was using the same host machine where the SCADA was being replaced. It was also able to run smoothly during client connection sessions as well.
Progea’s support service is impeccable and assisted our developers throughout each setup stage.
This is a great advantage for those developing applications like these. To have someone who is ready to listen and help clients with their every need is just as important as the product itself.
