An EPIC Case Study: American Metal Processing

Posted by Janice Colmer on Aug 14, 2020 10:05:08 AM

The nation's largest rotary heat-treating facility improves reliability, alarming, operator control, traceability, and data logging with groov EPIC.

When their PLCs began experiencing regular failures and the operating system of their HMI approached its end of life, American Metal Processing (AMP) knew it was "on borrowed time." In addition, the majority of system components were not integrated or automated beyond direct motor control. What was the best road to a modern system? How could the company achieve the data integrity, tracking, and connectivity required by their customers?
