Driving performance in aggregate production plants
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and other controllers control key assets within aggregates processing facilities, such as conveyors, crushers, pumps and fans. Whilst your existing control systems and the related industrial automation components will be able to run operational tasks, they may be holding you back.
The existing infrastructure may not be able to offer the level of flexibility and responsiveness needed to optimise efficiency and minimise waste while delivering required production levels.
The good news is that doesn’t mean you have to update every system in your operation at once! A well thought out staged approach can help to quickly drive performance improvements and remove pinch points without requiring considerable investments or extended downtime.
Let’s explore how targeted digitalisation investment programmes can help to optimise processing plants and boost performance:
