Description

Modern industrial plants need highly specialized automation solutions in order to be prepared for the future. Good to know: due to years of experience in the planning and development to plaster and dry mortar plants, RK-Prozesstechnik has developed a new control system. It combines the functionalities of dosing, weighing, mixing and filling. Whether it is dry mortar or paint – ViCoFlex brings unimagined possibilities into every user system. A production control system based on the PLC and bus system takes control and the entire process. Particular attention was paid to visualization. A captivatingly realistic animation on several monitors allows new insights into the plant – and helps to monitor it down to the smallest detail. User friendliness, clarity and functionality of the system are equally impressive.
