The manufacture of snack products requires a multi-part, interlinked production cycle. Previously the plant sections were regarded as individual units with separate emergency shutdown circuits. That made troubleshooting time-intensive and meant a large part of production was stopped.
Pilz developed a concept to optimise these processes. Now that the configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2 is used, faults can be located directly on the display and can be rectified immediately. All safety functions are easy to configure via the PNOZmulti Configurator. Today, in the event of a malfunction, only individual production sections are stopped; the rest of production can continue running efficiently. With these adjustments Poco Loco was able to safeguard production efficiently: downtimes have been significantly reduced.
The Belgian snack food manufacturer Poco Loco – one of the market leaders in Tex Mex products – decided to modernise its plants to increase the efficiency of its production lines and thereby optimise its processes. The configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2 and corresponding software tool PNOZmulti Configurator is as an efficient and safe solution at Poco Loco. http://www.pilz.com
