INGESOM automates data collection of density and moisture tests

INGESOM automates the collection of data obtained in the density and humidity tests, which are carried out in a punctual and continuous way in the press area of this client, a manufacturer of ceramic and porcelain stoneware of the highest quality with innovative designs.
The obsolete electronics of the machine that performs the compaction tests in the press area have been replaced by a PLC and an HMI. Measurement results are now automatically recorded in the overall plant database, instead of filling out a paper report in each zone, thus reducing both time and human error.
To automate moisture testing, a touch screen has been implemented to simplify and speed up the work of the operators, as they can enter data directly from the screen. The generation of reports ceases to be a paper template and becomes a digital report where workers select a series of fields, which allows the reports from the different areas of the plant to be unified.
With these improvements, the customer is able to add new functionality to the machines already in the plant, integrating all test results and reports into the general database. Recording and storing all the information in a single database makes it possible to generate reports with cross-referenced data to facilitate decision making by the property.
