A handle on the process. For consistent material webs.

Modern SCADA systems are able to provide a flood of data. Very high-performance systems can do so almost in real time.

However, only structured programming based on the manufacturing process can create added value for the user, which increases process transparency and production flexibility.

This significantly reduces waste, material consumption, inventory and downtimes as well as energy costs.

The requirements for control systems used in manufacturing processes with continuous material webs differ in several significant ways from non-continuous production processes and batch processes. 

For instance, most process and quality parameters must be represented via the longitudinal axis with correspondingly high resolution, while the time axis is of secondary importance. 

Another difference is in the statistical processes used with machine and process qualifications for manufacturing equipment with continuous material webs. 

For the programmers at Kühne+Vogel GmbH, these facts are a matter of course. Many standard control systems and ERP systems, however, fail as a result. 

Starting with simple on-site control points that use micro-panels and multi-panels, from industry-PC-based visualization solutions to extensive multi-user systems with client/server architecture, Kühne+Vogel GmbH delivers and plans projects for the full range of visualization and process control technology.

By using products like InTouch, WinCC, ProTool, PCS7, Delphi and Microsoft SQL Server, we guarantee that our delivered systems can be horizontally and vertically integrated into the respective company area.

Choosing the right communication channels is essential for data exchange. By using open, manufacturer-independent interface standards like OPC, OCX and ODBC, we guarantee communications with our own and third-party applications. 

As a regional and cellular network, our engineers use Industrial Ethernet (JEEE 802.3) with the transport controls ISO or TCP/IP. The field bus standard, PROFIBUS and PROFINET, is responsible for fast cyclical data exchanges with field devices and drives. 

We use synchronized, timed bus systems to provide fast drive communication (such as Profibus DP timed or Profinet IO with IRT) for time-critical drive-related tasks.
