Measuring systems

Production fluctuations are expensive and result in unnecessary consumption of raw material and energy. That is why Siempelkamp in cooperation with EWS developed the process-integrated measuring system SicoScan. SicoScan measures the moisture content and weight of the mat as well as the mat thickness and the blow detection at the press outfeed. 

All measuring data is collected in a central database and processed with Prod-IQ®. At the same time, the measurement results are applied to the production process which makes immediate adjustment possible. Thus, safety margins and oversizing can be systematically reduced and the entire production process optimized.

Technical features:

  • integration into the visualization concept and existing computer databases as well as monitors
  • collection of measured data and other production parameters in Prod-IQ®
  • evaluation of the measuring values for process optimization

Customer benefits:

  • integrated system – no stand-alone solution
  • reliable, exchangeable data
  • cost savings
  • increased competitiveness of the plant
