Our customers are our most important partners. It is to them we owe manifold interesting and important suggestions for the improvement of our HMI control system. Together with a wealth of own ideas, we have included these suggestions into our control system for more than three decades.

Yet, a successful control system developer needs a successful plant manufacturer at their side in order to be able to offer a comprehensive product. We consider ourselves fortunate that we may work together with even two companies successfully operating in the field of surface treatment and surface finishing.

One of our partners, comp. Atotech Deutschland GmbH that has designed and built electroplating plants for more than 30 years all over the world as successor of comp. Schering. Electro chemical and purely chemical metal and plastic coating, decorative or functional surface finishing – they have a solution for everything. Our system controls practically each of their plants established worldwide. Of course, you will find the customized, line-technological solution for reconstructing your line since comp. Atotech also sets on the preservation of the proven without abandoning innovations.

The same applies to our second partner, comp. WMV Anlagenbau in Windeck / Germany. Being a specialist for the construction of surface treatment plants for bulk material, comp. WMV brought to market the first centrifuge line years ago. In the beginning, comp. WMV used control by classical PLC as is usual in this sector. Years ago, however, they came across our control system and instantly realized that it needs a control like this to satisfy the increasing demands of the customers regarding transparent display of the manufacturing process, quality documentation, flexibility, energy-efficient and consumption-efficient production.

An elaborated product handling which is an additional challenge for us characterizes all WMV plants. Yet, we are able to meet this challenge easily by help of our efficient visualization and integrated flexible and modular periphery control. Complex mechanical systems such as fully automated, peripheral handling, loading and charging systems demand improved service and maintenance support in order to faster find and remove errors and weak point quickly.

This was the impetus to raise the visualization system drawn up in detail into the third dimension. A dimensional offset in every sense since we had to develop a new graphic front-end out of nothing with new data modelling, with connection to our technology and production database while maintaining the proven functions of the previous visualization system. We have succeeded in realizing this dimensional offset; the system is almost market-ready.
