Automated product lines operate their functions without any human interaction. Most modern machines run prebuilt programs in a digital controller, with sensors as the controller’s eyes, the controller continually monitors the machines status and gives new instructions to the system.
Well thought-out flow-functions are key to a structured and efficient program in the controller, that also reduces any time required for troubleshooting, service or support.
A prerequisite for a well-functioning automated system, is the Man-to-Machine Interface, it should be easy to navigate and based on a logical structure.
With this in mind we build our operator-panels to immediately notify the operator with any critical or essential information, to minimize production loss.
Today the exchange of information against main production systems will be more important and in the future, we will see fully integrated industries where most of the production is directly controlled via clients’ orders.
