Advantages of PLC Recipe Controls in Mixing and Blending
In many processes throughout the world of modern-day manufacturing, the use of Programmable Logic Controls (PLCs) is well-established as a strategic tool for building competitive advantage. However, it is still quite common to find mixing and blending equipment – even those designed for high-volume or high-value products – that continue to rely on manual operation presumably because automation is viewed as excessively expensive or complicated. Manufacturers must consider that this assumption is not always correct and can result in significant opportunity losses.
This white paper aims to shed light on the subject and presents five benefits that PLC Recipe Controls can bring specifically to mixing and blending processes.
