Plastics Plant Develops Energy Conservation System Using IFM Process Sensors

Ramaplast, located in Castelnuova Scrivia, Italy, has been a leading manufacturer of assorted plastic packaging lines for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries since 1973. To optimize energy efficiency and minimize plant downtime, Ramaplast combined the use of ifm process sensors, the AS-i wiring system for sensors and actuators, and IO-Link with Profinet to form a complete energy distribution network throughout their heating and cooling power plant. With the ability to control and monitor the entire facility, Ramaplast can now determine the most efficient and effective methods for energy generation during automation.
