Sector: Manufacture

Service: Control & Automation

AES was commissioned to design and install the electrical element of a mechanical process which was designed to remove manual handling from the production process and enable Everbuild to benefit from economies of scale and eliminate human errors.

Challenges

Everbuild had a traditional manufacturing process which involved the manual weighing of chalk powder into mixers for a range of different products. Due to the level of manual intervention involved in the process, Everbuild was finding that product quality and consistency was being affected due to human discrepancies in manual measuring.

Solution

AES was tasked with taking the pre-designed mechanical process of storing the chalk powder in a giant hopper and moving it using an air blower, and designing the control panel and the electrical process.

Solution (continued)

It was designed in such a way that operators could choose the destination point and exact volumes required. AES build the control panel off-site and installed it on-site in tandem with the mechanical build. As well as better product quality and consistency the process delivered costs savings in being able to purchase bigger bulk orders chalk powder, reducing physical manpower required, human error eradication and a streamlined production workflow with no production delays.
