31.07.2017 Data acquisition software for bagging systems

Concetti, Bastia Umbra, Italy, has introduced innovative software for its CONTINUA FFS bagging system for chemical powders, one of its most popular machines. This solution, intended for advanced ‘Industry 4.0’ factories, offers management the possibility to supervise and review historical data, by checking the production trends and performance of the bagging machine, thereby helping to reduce plant shutdown times and increase competitiveness by reducing costs.
The system has been developed internally by Concetti engineers, starting with the versatile Ignition application software platform, that unifies all the major software layers in today's manufacturing facilities - SCADA, MES, HMI - into a single solution to record, monitor and analyse the data provided by Concetti equipment, divided by number of bags, production shifts, operators, time intervals, alarm history, etc. Moreover, the software can acquire data from several Concetti machines, providing a complete view of the production system over time and uses analysis tools to make the process more efficient.
The data acquisition software utilises the industry's most up-to-date technologies and can be fully customised and installed on any type of machine manufactured by Concetti, providing analysis to improve resource management and plant productivity, reduce costs and increase competitiveness. All machines made by Concetti can also be integrated, interconnected and monitored remotely. For these features, Concetti has received Bureau Veritas's ‘Industry 4.0 ready’ attestation of conformity, for the benefits provided by the 2017 Stability Law, also known in Italy as “Industry 4.0 for packaging machines”.
