New-generation Cleia PLC control systems for Gasser Ceramic

The Gasser Ceramic group has contracted Cleia to modernize the PLC control and IT management systems at its various bricks and roofing tiles production units on its Corcelles-près-Payerne site.

Nine PLC systems that have been in operation for 25 years at the three production lines will be replaced by new-generation PLC control systems. An evolution of the IT supervision systems with redundant servers will be installed, to give a new dimension to the production management and optimization of these facilities. New features include access to production reports about energy savings, products tracking, facility efficiency, etc.

The systems can be accessed via terminals, tablet PCs and smartphones. A part of PLC and supervision systems will be replaced while the plant is running with limited downtimes.
