DIEFFENBACHER to present the future is CEBRO, a holistic smart plant concept at LIGNA.Innovation Network. Amidst uncertainties when the virus threat has forced the cancellation of the physical LIGNA 2021 event, it hasn’t stopped innovation and practice of industry networking. And so in the hybrid event DIEFFENBACHER will participate to introduce a smart plant concept CEBRO, that will help manufacturers accelerate their success.
CEBRO, the holistic smart plant concept successfully combines digitalization and advanced plant engineering solutions with operational excellence and sustainability initiatives. The new digitalization platform EVORIS is one pillar of CEBRO. Based on standardized interfaces that collect and process sensor and actuator data—including camera footage—EVORIS gives manufacturers more insight into their production and processes. AI-supported analysis of live data is just one tool EVORIS uses to help plant operators better understand and control their plants and make important decisions more quickly.
EVORIS is an open system and browser based. With its modular app structure design, EVORIS is easily extendable and updateable. All apps use a modern, intuitive interface and can be securely operated from any mobile or desktop device within a plant’s network.
One key app is “Anomaly Detection.” It uses artificial intelligence to immediately detect deviations from automatically defined target values for important plant parameters. This enables plant operators to react quickly to anomalies and prevent potential errors before they occur, thereby maximizing plant availability. Another app is “Quality Prediction.” This self-learning system steadily predicts specific board quality parameters during production to help operators easily spot irregularities and take countermeasures to reduce waste, save resources and increase productivity.
CEBRO’s advanced plant engineering solutions, meanwhile, help customers create smart synergies within a plant. Intelligent heat recovery concepts, including reusing heat from the press and dryer exhaust air elsewhere in the production process, are just one of many ideas to reduce energy costs and emissions and increase profit.
