Success! Automation upgrade of hot galvanizing line for a leading metals and mining company in Turkey
Sarla Technologies today announced the successful completion of its project for industrial automation and commissioning at the hot galvanizing line for a leading metals and mining company in Turkey. This was a techno-functional project that comprised of assessing operators’ issues with the existing set-up and incorporating the same in the upgraded version of the control system.
Sarla Technologies’ scope for the project was centred around addressing the issues listed by operators, modifying the PLC codes to address the same in new system, commission the control system to suit the manufacturing conditions and train the operator on automated sequences. The sequences designed included operations like permissions, interlocks, checks, etc. Sarla Technologies also updated the Human Machine Interface (HMI) station to suit the operator. Planned shutdown and gradual production support was planned in conjunction with the customer.
“This Siemens S7 project was a complex techno-functional challenge. The customer was facing pressures from both acute timelines and operators’ acceptance of the existing system. Our engineers went beyond the call of duty to assist the operators in resolving the breakdown issues related with the system. I am glad that we could address all requests established by the customer and maintain minimal plant shutdown.” Said Mr. Navneet Khanolkar, Head- Global Engineering Division, Sarla Technologies.
