Case presentations

An international high tech company needed an automation system to replace some of the work they do manually at their factory in Joensuu, Eastern Finland. At their production facility there are three separate conveyor belts, specified for different needs, that each have their own carriage baskets. At the end of the line network these belts fuse into one belt that conveys the completed products for further processing. The workers returned the empty carriage baskets back to the beginning of the production line and sorted them to their specific lines for new production. This manual labor took a lot time and the prospect of automation had been a topic of discussion for some time already.

The first challenge we faced was the factory’s physical space. There was no room by the conveyor belts to build a new, separate return belt, so in co-operation with our partner companies we decided to place the return belt above the current conveyor lines. The software program designed by our engineers collects all the carriage baskets and with an elevator lifts them up to the return belt. On the return belt the baskets are sorted correctly based on barcodes on their sides and an automatic need-based signal calls them to the beginning of the production line.

Thanks to the automated system the employees no longer need to manually carry, handle and sort the baskets. In addition to the time they are saving, the amount of human errors have also decreased.

Already for several years we have worked in collaboration with a Joensuu-based and globally operating company that manufactures production lines for food and foodstuff industry. In the production process there are several tanks, some of which are for making the end product, while some are designated for debris and waste products. To comply with the food industry’s high purity standards, there is a water pipe with washing water running between the tanks. An automation program designed and delivered by Top Automation determines when and which tank is being washed, and which is being used for manufacturing. The system has to be fail-safe to ensure that the washing water never runs into the tank where production is in process. Therefore the operation is double secured with the program but also with a physical barrier.

Top Automation’s clean-in-place automation program and software is built in collaboration with our client. It meets the food industry’s high standards and it enables production to be in operation day and night, all year round. Double secured obstruction guarantees that any critical, production-threatening errors aren’t occurring. Co-operation has lasted years, and we will continue to develop the production lines together in the future as well.

At their factory, a North Karelian company had a decades old but well-serving production line that demanded a lot of manual labor. The problem with this type of production line was the use of direct current. DC was the norm back then, but as today’s world is leaning more towards alternating current, finding components and parts to the production line wasn’t easy.

To be able to build a production line that could one day hold a similar rich and long history, the new production line had to be solid and durable. The new production line had to also be faster, more agile and work in a way that creates the least possible product waste. The new line was decided to be AC-based as alternating current allows the users to control and maintain the motors better than DC would. Added challenges to the new line’s installation were the project’s tight schedule as well as the amount of motors; there are five motors in the production line and they all need to work synchronously.

New motors were installed before the scheduled production shutdown. During the two-week shutdown we installed and connected new control and motor cabinets, connected the motors and performed commissioning. With little to no modifications the new production line was successfully launched, perfectly on schedule.
