Automation made transparent
SPANGLER – the Plus of Communication.
Current developments and future challenges were the focus of this year’s SPANGLER Automation Day which was organised by SPANGLER together with suppliers and partner companies on 14 September. About 40 guests heard interesting presentations, exchanged views and informed themselves about the latest constructive solutions at an in-house exhibition.
Insight for specialists
The presentations covered a wide range of topics and were addressed to all local specialists who deal with SPANGLER control technology for water treatment every day. The experts of SPANGLER reported on the modernisation (retrofit) of the plant control of a wastewater treatment plant and gave tips and tricks for the navigation in a wiring diagram. FlowChief GmbH, specialist for process control engineering and energy management located in Fürth, dealt with the digitalisation in the water management while Huber SE located in Berching examined energy-efficient drives for the wastewater treatment. The lecture presented by Endress + Hauser was about optimisation of production processes by using intelligent sensors.
During the breaks the guests had the opportunity to look at the exhibition stands or to synchronise speed and sense of balance on a Segway course. Anyone who had become curious about the practice after the theory at the end of the day was able to take a look behind the scenes of the SPANGLER Manufacturing Department together with Service Manager Helmut Weigl.
