The Challenge
Paint and coatings specialist Brillux is a manufacturer of painting products in central Europe. The company's warehouse and distribution operations include a fully automated conveyor system controlled by Siemens SIMATIC automated process controllers and a traditional MLOG SCADA system to reduce downtime.
The Customer
About The Customer
Brillux is a manufacturer and direct supplier offering a complete range of paints and varnishes. The complete range encompasses more than 12,000 articles.
The Solution
Brillux has worked with SCHAD to implement EXTEND7000 as a mobile SCADA system to give engineers 'anywhere-anytime' alerts. Engineers can receive real-time notifications of system performance issues if a problem occurs within the company's primary distribution centre. In addition, they are able to gain remote access to automated control systems to investigate system performance issues, using a standard BlackBerry smartphone.
Operational Impact
  • [Cost Reduction - Operation]
    The system uses existing Wi-Fi or GPRS infrastructure thereby providing a low cost, functionally rich mobile control and monitoring solution.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
    Problems are indicated to line operators when the condition of a device or associated equipment changes beyond predetermined limits.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Issue Response]
    The SCHAD software thus enables Brillux to dramatically reduce response times after failure.
Quantitative Benefit
  • EXTEND7000 has helped Brillux shorten reaction times and to reduce unscheduled downtime of conveyor systems by 28%.
