Schenck Process implements LOGiQ for LafargeHolcim

Published by
World Cement,

Schenck Process has implemented its LOGiQ automation system at LafargeHolcim’s Ferzikovo and Voskresenk plants. This has resulted in the plants being upgraded to LafargeHolcim’s Smart Factory standard.

At Ferzikovo, the LafargeHolcim Group is currently engaged in a major investment project for the Russian market. The plant has three incoming and outgoing scales as well as 11 loading stations for loose cement and two bag loading stations. Schenck Process converted the parking lot with registration, the incoming and outgoing scales and all loading points for fully automatic, unmanned operation. Self-service terminals for registration and weighing were installed in the entrance and exit areas. In the loose loading area, a LOGiQ® loading terminal including the DISOMAT® Tersus weighing electronics with Profibus interface to the PLC and ultrasonic sensors were installed. In Voskresensk the conversion work included the parking lot with registration, incoming and outgoing scales, three loading scales and one loading point for packaged goods.

Commissioning was smooth and quick at both locations with delivery operations continuing throughout the process at both sites.
