    Coating specialist Alural makes its production more sustainable with Siemens
    Installing a powder coating and anodisation system that is not only more efficient, but also far more sustainable: that was the aim of the FOX or ‘Flash Oxidation’ project at the Lummen-based aluminium coater Alural. Siemens partners Breemes and IE Tech took care of supplying energy to the new installation using a Sivacon S4 power distribution board. Thanks to strong partnerships, the project was practically flawless.

    The newest technology sooner
    At Ronetic, “using fewer hands” is the most important issue for customers. It means automation and robotisation, though preferably in a manageable and affordable way, so the trick is to keep a hold over how complex the technology is. This can be done by setting up the control in a clear and organised way, for example, and by combining components where possible. For centralised control, itsme recommended a new I/O system from Festo with an integrated valve island.

    Tailor-made training packages
    DHL Aviation in Brussels Airport invests heavily in training and education in order to improve knowledge levels internally and its position on the labour market externally. Breemes contributes to this with a foundation course in PLC for maintenance technicians. The knowledge they gain from this helps them in matters such as programming operations in a more energy-efficient way. As well as this, DHL Aviation is also looking at other courses, such as the Profibus malfunction solution course, that Breemes runs. The sustainable, malfunction-free collaboration is discussed here below.

    Dispensing soft, medium or firm
    These days, soft, medium or hard has become a championship question. While for Belgian-Dutch Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen it will mean tyres, Radium Foam in Maastricht is dealing with a similar question involving the production of pillows. The pillows they make come in three varieties: soft, medium and firm. For that distinction to be done properly during production, the raw materials need to be dispensed very accurately – itsme was able to recommend a very suitable solution for this in the form of Siwarex WP251 weighing electronics from Siemens.

    Service as the driving force of the business
    At Yerseke Engine Services, or YES, providing excellent service is at the heart of everything they do. And in a world where downtime means decline, that’s just how it should be, since every day that a ship is not in operation is incredibly costly. Working effectively and efficiently then become key concepts. YES purchases the components for their electrical control cabinets in the form of kits – packages specifically tailored to the customer – from itsme. For a company that is on standby for the shipping industry 24/7, this working method is a perfect fit.

    From canal to tap
    No less than 4 billion litres of drinking water per year. With this capacity, the brand new water treatment plant of Farys, the drinking water company, can, in the first phase, supply the Flemish municipalities of Ostend and Middelkerke. Due to an innovative technique that makes brackish water suitable for consumption, ‘draining water to the sea’ is no longer the norm for this coastal region. The complete electrical installation and instrumentation was designed and executed by Digi-Flow. Partner itsme Breemes assisted them with technical product know-how.

    Compressed air: saving and electrifying
    Compressed air is ‘expensive energy’, especially if an installation has a lot of leaks. However, companies often pay little attention to compressed air as an expense and source of CO2 emissions. From a finance and CSR perspective, this means that they’re missing opportunities. Grinding disc manufacturer Saint-Gobain Abrasives took up the gauntlet and had itsme perform an ultrasonic test. This resulted in an overview of leaks and areas of potential savings. The company has already fixed most of the leaks and is now, once again with itsme, looking into electrifying certain drives. That will mean less wear, but moreover reduced costs, since electricity is cheaper than air.

    Grip on your production process
    Although the provisioning of care homes is often well organised, on the flip side there is sometimes still room for improvement, especially where hygiene processes are concerned. With that in mind, Jop van Haaren, director and owner of Less2Care from Raalte, set out to work ten years ago. The result? The VacuSan: an automated solution for the safe vacuum sealing and disposal of used incontinence materials. The electronic parts of the operating system are delivered as a kit – a customer-specific package – by itsme. “As a customer you don’t need to worry about it anymore.”

    Sustainable from top to bottom
    On the outskirts of Hengelo-Zuid tons of waste are given a new purpose each year. Through incineration, separation and composting, energy and raw materials are extracted and find their way back to society. With the heat that is released during incineration, Twence generates enough power to provide half of all households in the Twente \(region in the Eastern Netherlands\) with electricity. In order to guarantee the continuity of all the plants, operators carry out regular inspection rounds in the installations, so good visibility is important. In switching from fluorescent lighting to LED, Twence enlisted the help of itsme.

    Shining in customisation
    Every machine leaving the factory in Dokkum, Friesland \(the Netherlands\) is the result of a specific customer request. The team at De Jager RVS translates such ideas into final designs that fit in perfectly with practice. Their specialisation? Building customised machines in which stainless steel plays the leading role. This was the case when a large dairy producer asked them for a vertical transport solution. The choice of a pneumatic actuator was an easy one. In order to get everything that was connected with this critical application right in one go, they invited itsme and Festo to the design table. “You want to integrate a bit of security for yourself.”

But what if you are asked at the very last minute to show what your company is capable of? At eReM in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands, they know all about it. In part thanks to a rock-solid offer they convinced their end customer – an internationally operating Dutch shipbuilder – to come on board with them. And in this case literally because, as it concerned the installation of the entire electrical system of a new shipyard in Kenya, the components were shipped by sea freight. Their main challenge? In the preliminary phase everything had to be 100% correct. This required thorough preparation in which eReM could count on support from itsme.

    No compromise on quality
    Chances are that you held an Owens-Illinois \(O-I\) product in your hands at some time. The originally American company is in fact the producer of the bottles of, among others, Heineken and Grolsch. On a yearly basis, a billion bottles of brown and green glass are produced at the production location in Leerdam, with the European beer market as their destination. These enormous numbers are accompanied by strict quality requirements on the part of the end customer and this, in turn, requires a tight production process. However, could there still be room for improvement in terms of efficiency? Together with Saint Gobain Abrasives and itsme, O-I rose to that challenge.
