An industry-leading printer ink manufacturer still relied on manual paper logs to track consumption and movement of over 100 raw materials. To maximize efficiency and reduce human error, the plant needed a digital makeover.
An equipment maker at the front-line of the semiconductor demand surge harnessed real-time material data to improve consistency and reduce errors.
RoviSys was able to focus on using the out of the box functionality of the PI System. New reports enabled operators to intelligently adjust production and OEE targets and helped increase uptime by nearly 30%.
Unscheduled downtime of legacy production equipment in this medical device plant was causing major productivity declines. With no option for equipment upgrades, the plant needed a new system capable of delivering the deep diagnostics necessary to keep production moving.
For the first time, the oil refiner has access to real-time inventory that is traceable and auditable all the way through the process.
For this around-the-clock glass manufacturer, aging hardware, lack of integration support and system robustness issues threatened the overall throughput of the plants operation. It’s time for an automation upgrade.
From dashboards to machine learning: In order to improve quality,
throughput, and availability in its high-volume facility, this distribution
center required a custom solution that could efficiently move and
track material through its ever-shifting logistical puzzle.
The company quickly identified inconsistencies among its breweries and detected previously unnoticed power and water usage irregularities that were affecting both productivity, efficiency, and cost at each site. Each 1% improvement resulted in millions of gallons of process water savings.
Substantial expertise in process automation allowed RoviSys to suggest changes to the company’s business processes and control systems instrumentation that simplified process and tracking complications and directly met their needs.
The company resolved it's fundamental issues, and is now able to fully track quality, quickly identify defects, and to pinpoint defect causes in the robust, real-time manner the industry demands.
St. Joesph's generates their own power now, improving reliability, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 11,676 tons/year, and reducing the annual utility budget. Approximately $1 million reduction in its first full year of operation.
Switching to this tightly controlled and monitored microgrid system, Union college was able to end frequent blackouts and provide students, faculty, and essential research facilities the stable power source they required.
When UofM operations teams became aware that the central power plant and sub-stations weren’t equipped to handle harsh weather events or utility outages adequately, an upgrade was needed.
Unplanned repairs dropped from 337 to just 46 per year—a massive 86% reduction. In the process, plant availability was increased by 42%. Management has gained annual budgeting and forecasting insights based on asset maintenance estimates and plans to expand the program to other areas of their treatment facilities based on this success.
With a unique set of capabilities and expertise in the utilities industry plus a deep understanding of process controls, information technology and management, and cybersecurity, RoviSys was the clear choice to take on this project.
RoviSys was able to address both challenges with unique assets that other integrators couldn’t match: a pre-existing relationship with the manufacturer and extensive experience with the Rockwell Automation systems used to run existing operations.
A U.S. based manufacturer needed a solution to display real time locations of assets and materials, and to provide historical records identifying quality issues and reasons for downtime.
Facing furnace failure and an obsolete control system, this float glass manufacturer required a full system modernization in record time to meet its aggressive production goals.
When Magnus International Group purchased a shuttered specialty chemicals plant in 2007, the Cleveland-based startup saw it as an entry point into the oleochemicals market with the initial goal of converting natural fats and oils into industrial products.
This South Carolina data center is growing fast. Boosted by a strong reputation for reliability, efficiency, and low costs, the company has maxed out their space in eight buildings with water-cooled servers.
An outdated temperature control system risks raising the temperature for servers in this colocation data center. The challenge now is to upgrade the outdated automation system without raising them even further.
An outdated control system was preventing this pharmaceutical manufacturer from bringing critical new drugs into production. To serve its market and its patients, the company needed to rebuild from the ground up.
Prompted by a rapid boom in the building and construction market, this construction adhesives manufacturer needed to modernize heavily manual manufacturing operations and transition to a state-of-the-art facility with automated solutions.
