Process Automation Case Studies

Automation Upgrade Rubber Plant – Batch Controls

An upgrade to Wondware Inbatch and complete automation overhaul helped this client gain control over production, storage and use of over 100 different treatment dips produced internally. A complex batching system with multiple stages, real time communications, and remote operational control was integrated by EPIC. The system improved mixing and tracking ability through the batch controller and desktop batch scheduler.

Key Features: Chemical treatment dips, automated mixing system, batch mixing, Wonderware InBatch Software, Class 1, Group D, Division 1, hazardous area

PSC7 Siemens Control Integration for New Chemicals Facility

process automation companies integrate siemens plc 7A new chemical processing facility required one of the largest integrations of Profibus I/O networks ever integrated on a PSC7 platform.  The greenfield facility had a tight timeline and required integration on a large scale with 30+ control panels and over 100,000+ feet of cable.

A team of 12 programmers completed the project on time. The team had to overcome the challenges of coordinating such a large development team on a tight schedule and translating between German and English.

Key Features: PCS7 control platform with eleven integrated controllers, customized client toolkit and architecture, large Profibus network with over 30 control panels, translation from German to English

Client Testimonial

“I would like to thank EPIC and especially Ron Buss on behalf of Industrial Summit Technology for the hard work and dedication programing the PLC on our new Skybond process. Beginning at startup to present, Ron has helped us improve the process. He has worked tirelessly making sure that the program follows our standard operation procedure accurately and we are very satisfied with the results.”

Mr. Ariel Hernandez, Resins Production Manager at Industrial Summit Technology
