Siemens S7 – Control system upgrade

Improved process control and productivity


Three reasons for choosing Siemens S7 control system upgrade

1.

Extended machinery lifetime

2.

Improved quality control

3.

Production efficiency

Control system upgrade


The S5 control system used in ESU machinery until 1998 has become obsolete. Getting spare parts is difficult, and in some cases, even impossible.

The new control system S7 is now available as a retrofit for old machinery, offering an excellent opportunity to improve process control and productivity. The new features in the user interface give detailed information on production parameters and process flow feedback.

Once installed, the upgrade helped us win a large glass façade project in Indonesia that required extremely high quality. Both we and Glaston can be proud of the high level of quality achieved,” says Matea Franjić, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Kristal in Vitez, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
