    Unipetrol assigned the design and implementation of the new solution to its trusted supplier company INELSEV, holder of the Sivacon Siemens Technology Partner certificate. New control systems came into use at different points in the production process.

  2. Case Study: Packaging Companies Discover Efficiency, Cost Savings And Increased Production Available Through Pneumatic Conveying
    5/28/2010

    With today's economic pressures, more plant managers and others charged with conveying powders, granular items, and flakes for packaging are adopting the automatic operation of vacuum conveying and packaging equipment as standards to hit critical price points for market success.

  3. Case Study: Working Together To Solve A Feeding Problem
    12/16/2009
    Pfizer Inc., headquartered in New York, produces human and animal prescription medicines for national and international markets. One of the company’s global research and development centers, located in Ann Arbor, Mich., operates a pharmaceutical sciences pilot plant in nearby Holland, Mich., that produces preproduction quantities of various products for testing before full-scale production at other facilities. The pilot plant was experiencing an ongoing problem manually feeding a range of solid materials into various-sized inerted reaction vessels that contained a solvent. By Schenck AccuRate
  4. New Blade Design Gives Double Planetary Mixer A Bright Future
    12/16/2011
    In this age of technological marvels and Internet madness, it's refreshing to see an innovation that isn't the product of an exotic new technology.
  5. Automation Optimizes Fuel Supply
    12/29/2015

    Without concrete, our modern life is not conceivable. It is a versatile construction material – on land, on water, and when necessary even at dizzying heights. The base material cement is a decisive factor in the use of concrete, for example for roads, bridges, tunnels and towers – the construction material concrete has many potential applications and guarantees that construction components and structures are highly durable. To continue its success, a cement plant turned to modern weighing technology for its production processes.
