INGESOM performs the retrofit of a box unloading machine for KEROS CERAMICA.

INGESOM modernizes a box unloading machine in order to increase its production and significantly extend its useful life, in the facilities of KEROS CERAMICA, a company located in Nules (Castellón) with more than 40 years of experience in the manufacturing and commercialization of ceramic floor and wall tiles.
The customer had an obsolete electrical panel, with no HMI screen and a PLC that sometimes failed when the machine was running continuously. Through the process of retrofitting industrial machines, INGESOM installs a new electrical panel according to current standards and with total availability of spare parts that facilitates preventive maintenance by technicians.
Together with the electrical panel, INGESOM replaces the old PLC with a new PLC with an updated program that allows KEROS CERAMICA’s maintenance technicians to connect from a PC to locate faults faster, speeding up maintenance tasks and reducing downtime during the machine’s production process.
A new HMI is also installed that manages a greater number of recipes, has a synoptic of the machine that allows to interact directly and see its status in a fast and intuitive way. In addition, the inverters are replaced by new models with communication, which allow the PLC and the line speeds to be controlled on the same recipe. With these changes, the process is digitized and operators no longer need to use paper prescription parts.
To complete the retrofit process of the unloading box machine, improved safety systems adapted to the new regulations in force are included. In this way, INGESOM helps the client KEROS CERÁMICA to have a more updated machine and without making the high investment required to buy a new one, safer for its workers and with a more sustainable production process.
