Au2mate Automation and Industrial IT for the Dairy and Process Industry Worldwide
pWe are committed to continually developing our technical expertise and competencies. Our expertise covers DCS systems, PLC, human machine interface (HMI), databases, servers, network and industrial communication.
MIS-MES and ERP integration
The process industry is facing increasingly tough requirements with regard to manufacturing processes and product documentation and traceability. We supply customised integrated process automation solutions, comprehensive management information systems (MIS), manufacturing execution systems (MES) and enterprise resource planning (ERP).
Process automation systems
We have been successfully producing pioneering automation solutions for the global process industry for over three decades, including working with solutions based on automation platforms from leading suppliers. We view the installation and commissioning of our automation projects as a natural part of our total solution package. As a truly global supplier, we are always willing and able to provide support and training for our clients wherever they are in the world.
Customised process automation software using methods according to ISA S88/IEC 62264.
We have a thorough knowledge of best practice. This enables us to adjust automation levels for each individual client, dependent on the process, the operator and the available technology.
Our work methods are based on internationally recognised software development and project management standards combined with many years of practical experience in the business.
Our programming supports the IEC-61131 standard. Our software is structured and described to the ISA S88/IEC 61512 standard. Databases are designed to the ISA S95/IEC 62264 standard. Software development process is based on the V-model, and the entire project process is based on GAMP. Our comprehensive QA manual, which is constantly updated, describes and documents the applied methodology.
Process automation software with online diagnosis
Automation is part of the ‘central nervous system’ of a food process factory. So if something goes wrong, it is essential to have access to fast and appropriate assistance.
Au2mate provides a complete range of services via modem and Internet connections. This makes it possible to diagnose software problems quickly and then implement the relevant measures rapidly and economically. And as we use standardised hardware platforms, you can be sure that it will be easy to find any spare parts you may need.
In addition, Au2mate is happy to set up service contracts for existing installations. Close collaboration with the in-house staff at the factory is the key to making the very best use of the entire pool of expertise available.
Process automation platforms – open standards
Au2mate employees master the systems and platforms within process automation. We have chosen to focus on the following strategic control platforms:
- PLC systems: Allen Bradley, Siemens, Pascon, Accos, SattCon
- HMI / SCADA systems: Allen Bradley, GE Proficy iFix, Siemens WinCC / Flexible, Wonderware, Citect, IGSS, Procon-Win, SattLine
- DCS systems: Emerson Delta V, Foxboro I/A, Siemens PCS7, Proleit, SattLine
Upgrades for dairy and food factories
Obsolete automation systems can be costly on account of faults and errors that shut down production. Investment in upgrades is offset by increased production efficiency and lower maintenance costs. As such, investments of this kind soon pay for themselves.
Au2mate implements successful upgrades for dairy and food processing installations, including precise planning, testing and training for the staff. It is possible to implement the upgrading in stages in order to cause minimum disturbance to the production.
