Krones Academy automation concept for the beverage industry

Thursday, 22 November, 2012 | Supplied by: JL Lennard Pty Ltd

The Krones Academy’s automation concept is an enabling gateway for electronics and automation specialists in the beverage industry. It has been created to ensure fit-for-purpose diagnostics and optimisation that cover the spectrum of automation technology.

Three elements form the basis of the automation concept: Automation Engineer, Automation Notebook and Automation Rack.

Automation Engineer consists of modularised basic courses and workshops on IT systems engineering, the line documentation system and the automation and networking concept. The training courses can be tailored to the requirements of a bottling plant, providing the knowledge that is required in actual operation, which can minimise downtimes and cost-intensive interventions in the production sequence.

With the pre-installed Automation Notebook, the entire software is immediately available for diagnostics, troubleshooting and data backup. The extended malfunction diagnostics, backup tools and boot functions are quickly put in place with simple plug-and-play efficiency, with all parameters being read in after a component has been replaced.

The Automation Rack is the test track for internal training, advanced skilling or modifications to programming. With the S7 Rack, the Touchscreen Rack or the AS-i-Safety Rack, electronics engineers can develop and test their own programs, practise replacing components, or conduct simulation-based machinery familiarisation and operator training events.

Each of the three elements can be used by itself, as an individual module in the automation system or as intermeshing components. Suitable for training staff, troubleshooting or function upgrades in the control system, the automation concept is useful for production plants in both online operation of the machines concerned and in simulation runs.
