PLC ARCO-Solutions.

How our PLC software work

PLC (programmable-logic controller) is used to control production lines and machines. The PLC is a computer with a microprocessor that sends the correct information to the relevant machines in the line.

In a PLC system it is possible to program exactly what each machine on the production line has to do. A PLC system not only controls, but is also very suitable for signaling malfunctions. In combination with an HMI screen (touch panel), information from the PLC is easily displayed on the screen. For example, malfunctions can be visualized for inspection. The production line can also be operated from the HMI screen. This allows the versatile and swift adjustment of settings to ensure that the production process runs smoothly, efficiently and quickly.


Application of our PLC software

PLC systems are integrated into every production process we deliver. PLC systems provide secure and reliable control processes in the agri-food sector, the logistics sector, the recycling and bulk sector. It is the brain of a production line. For instance, it controls the weighing by forwarding scanned barcodes or bring the sieving process to a halt when the collection container is full.

‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
