Business Case
  • Sarla Technologies was chosen by a leading provider of process control and information management systems to provide Automation Engineering services for multiple projects at various locations of a prominent paint manufacturer in the United Kingdom.
  • The project aimed to reduce manual intervention and avoid exposure to harmful materials by automating the entire Paint Manufacturing plant in compliance with S88 standards. Expansion of the existing plant and addition of new lines were part of this project.
  • The main challenge was to put all of the manually controlled systems across the facility under a single control system using Batch Controls.
