Industrial Conveying forms automation software department

Industrial Conveying (Aust) Pty Ltd (ICA) has instigated its own Automation Software Department to meet industrial market requirements for software-based solutions.

This expansion complements the company’s longstanding mechanical and electrical design capabilities for industry, the company says.

From simple motor starters to highly sophisticated laser measuring and positioning systems, all industrial automations nowadays involve software control and configuration, says ICA.

“Immediate results have been forthcoming for this new department of ICA; with various projects showing good indications that the Automation and Software Department is integrating well within the existing ICA technology environment and is able to provide support when integrating highly technical systems,” says a delegate from ICA.

“One major fit out in the food processing sector included laser positioning applications as inventory and stock take capabilities.

“These, along with software requirements for conveying control and data tracking, were consuming a huge level of software development.”

For this particular project, ICA’s Automation and Software department engineers used more than 7.8 MB of data and logic memory, which is considered to be at the leading end of large installations, the company says.

Also, a powerful SCADA project servicing nine terminals was developed in order to provide for control and diagnostic capabilities to all the functional aspects of the plans.

The state-of-the-art software was complemented by functional wireless connectivity and remote access capabilities. The remote access was proving to be one of the best investments into the project from the point of view of the client.

With this potential in mind, the ICA Automation and Software department is able to provide quick online support and monitoring on a hotline technical support base.

This ensures that all clients will never run out of professional expertise at any time during the implementation and post commissioning of materials handling fitouts made by Industrial Conveying (Aust).
