Smart Saw Line Futureproofs Timber Production at AKD Softwoods

AKD implemented the latest connected technologies to increase recovery, improve safety and reduce downtime. The new saw line at AKD’s Colac mill is reaping the rewards offered by greater visibility into the system. Fault-finding time has been reduced significantly – from as long as two hours to now just a couple of seconds – thanks to rich diagnostic information available in real time through the Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk® View Site Edition (SE) HMI. AKD’s control is maximised by the ability to access the system remotely.
