    A customer asked to integrate our control system with the Wonderware solution they were already using to manage their manufacturing process. As a result, we could appreciate the benefits offered by an established platform, featuring high reliability and well known across the industrial domain.

  • Goals

    • Reduce the energy consumption of manufactured equipment
    • Optimize equipment management by end users 
    • Optimize compressed air consumption for customers
  • Challenges

    • Adopt a software to control the proprietary equipment supplied by Ingersoll as well as by other vendors
    • Identify the compressed air demand of production lines and, in some cases, also predict future demand
  • Results

    • Compressors are turned on and off individually, using a smart management process based on actual requirements
    • Real-time visualization of the status of installed equipment, eliminating the need for individual monitoring
    • Monitoring of critical parameters to identify possible failure signals in advance, thus implementing real predictive maintenance
    • Few months after the installation of the supervisory system, the end customer achieved approximately 8,000 Euro/ month of savings on the energy bill compared to the previous year
