02.07.2018 Towards smart compounding plants

Coperion, Stuttgart, Germany, has introduced the Coperion Production Control Center (CPCC), which offers compounders a clever solution for the control of compounding systems. The CPCC incorporates all the essential functions of a manufacturing execution system, such as company data capture, KPI determination, traceability and order management, and constitutes the interface between the compounding lines and an ERP system. In particular it facilitates overall control of continuous production on multiple production lines. Other key advantages of this smart control system include complete documentation of the production process and the ability to trace the finished product right down to the batches of raw material used. Its use of generally accepted standards makes it easy to integrate into an existing IT infrastructure.

The CPCC consolidates the experience that Coperion has gained while implementing over 150 compounding lines and is tailored precisely to compounders’ requirements. This development enables the company to offer its customers an intelligent Industry 4.0/digitalisation application that paves the way to smart factories. The first such system will be put into operation in the second half of 2018.
