Cantine Riunite and Movicon

Tradition and future

“Thanks to the Progea Platform’s integrated functions I have been able to achieve all that I planned to do at the beginning and something more.”

Cantine Riunite and Movicon

The production supervisory system controls productivity efficiency and the state of the three bottling lines. The home page shows the general situation of the three production lines by using a pie chart to show whether they are running at full capacity, not running, or OFF. It also shows the number of bottles that have passed through from the filling machine to the labelling machine. Torelli took less than one year to develop and get this great project up and running without having to neglect his other duties which go beyond those of design engineering supervision systems. The final results were those desired and met the demands put forward by the company. These demands included non-stop control of maintenance, alarms and anomaly.

The Cantine Riunite Cooperative (the most exported Italian wine brand in the world) went into operation on 10th February 1950 in the Province of Reggio Emilia with the mission to promote the excellence of Emilian agricultural productivity and transform local wine cellars and individual wine producers into an economic reality at an international level. Cantine Riunite deployed modern and avant-garde tools to align the traditional production process techniques with the times. Their aim was to produce excellent wine that would reflect the passion and efforts made by the Reggiani winemaker members throughout the production process.
This application was entirely developed by the Cantine Riunite technical office whose manager, Engineer Gianluca Torelli was responsible for promoting the project.
The system’s architecture is comprised of a Movicon server, two clients and one web client. The two clients from which all the project’s pages can be accessed once logging on with a password, are located in the maintenance manager’s office and the production manager’s office. The web client is used as a wildcard since access can be gained from any personal computer or device using a browser. The project is unique and covers the two Maintenance and Production departments where both the two clients have been installed.
