About The Customer
CVC Technologies is a leading builder of pharmaceutical packaging machines. The company is committed to innovation and efficiency in its operations, and as such, sought to digitize its liquid filling and capping machines. The goal was to improve process safety, production accuracy, and overall efficiency. By adopting an end-to-end IoT solution, CVC Technologies aimed to enhance the safety of their equipment, introduce digital maintenance capabilities, and gain visibility into machine status from anywhere at any time. The company's commitment to leveraging digital technology for improved operational efficiency is evident in its choice of the EcoStruxure Machine solution.
The Solution
CVC Technologies opted for an EcoStruxure Machine solution, which included a range of digital services. The EcoStruxure Augmented Operator Advisor was used to provide real-time visibility into a machine’s status. This allowed for immediate response to any issues, enhancing the overall efficiency of the operation. The Modicon M262 logic and motion controllers were implemented to deliver direct cloud connectivity and digital services. This enabled remote monitoring and control of the machines, further improving operational efficiency. Lastly, Lexium 32 servo drives were used to simplify all aspects of the machine’s lifecycle, from engineering to maintenance. This resulted in faster commissioning and more efficient maintenance, quality control, and troubleshooting.
Operational Impact
  • The implementation of the EcoStruxure Machine solution resulted in several operational benefits for CVC Technologies. The company was able to commission their machines 30% faster, leading to quicker production times and increased output. The solution also improved maintenance, quality control, and troubleshooting processes, reducing downtime and increasing overall operational efficiency. The digitization of maintenance manuals led to improved safety and fewer incidents of human error, further enhancing the reliability and efficiency of the machines. Additionally, the solution improved customer service to end users, as issues could be identified and resolved more quickly.
