Mobile Automation, 03 9761 8500. For many years, Mobile Automation engineers have provided high level automation support for this well regarded glass products client.

This worldwide corporation, with Australian facilities in Dandenong and Laverton, is a leading producer of engineered glass materials serving the oil and gas industry, polymer additives, highway safety, metal finishing and conductive particle markets.

Their operations are highly automated, and as the processes deal with molten glass, accurate measurement and control is critical. To perform this task a SCADA system is employed. The SCADA system is a CITEC brand, and requires highly specialised engineers when there is a need for alterations or program edits. They rely on the expertise of our engineers to provide this service. The Glass furnace runs 24/7 and generally will only be shut down for maintenance every 2 years.

Other equipment found at the sites include Schneider’s Modicon Quantu PLC systems, Modicon Magelis HMI’s as well as Schneider’s range of Altivar VSD’s.

This client is very pleased with the Industrial Automation Support they receive from Mobile Automation.
