Glass Industry Results
After implementing Model Predictive Control (MPC) our glass customers have realized significant benefits, including exceptional stability, a substantial reduction in temperature variation, increased throughput, and reduced product change time.Read More
Reduction of fuel consumption
Reduction in temperature variation
50 - 75% reduction
Reduced job change time
Reduced job change time from 7hrs to 2-3hrs
Food Industry Results
After upgrading the existing control system (configuration, programming, and commissioning of the PLC & HMI) for a leading ketchup producer, end results included increased throughput, reduced downtime, and optimized operation with minimal operator intervention.Read More
Increase over normal volume
Efficient 24 hour operation of the system to meet production demands
Inorganic Chemicals Industry Results
By implementing flexible batching, a well known Chemical manufacturer saw increased productivity & better quality, a reduction of manual operation, fewer mistakes, and complete raw material balance.Read More
Increase in productivity
The system upgrade completed with ACSI involved the replacement of both the process controller and the operator interface. On its own, an upgrade of the interface would have been a difficult job. Moving to a new process control platform and a new operator interface immediately made this a high risk job as well. The engineers from ACSI have done a terrific job in reverse engineering the old system to allow a very close replication in the new system. Their efforts resulted in a very smooth startup.
ACSI Europe To Commission A Float Rolled Glass Line
Posted:In early fall of 2018, ACSI Europe will be implementing a control system for PT Mulia Glass located in Jakarta, Indonesia. The platform will consist of Siemens S7 – 400 redundant PLCs & Intouch HMI Software. The new remote racks supplied will be connected to the existing Siemens S7 -400 H
ACSI Receives Letter of Commendation
Posted:In August 2018, ACSI Europe engineers commissioned a Melter and Forehearth control system for NEG Fiberglass in Wigan, England. The platform was a Rockwell CL Redundant PLC with Intouch HMI Software. After completion of the Rebuild, ACSI was rated in the top 10 of best performing contractors.
