Case Study: Defrosting and Temperature Control in Food Production

Donal O’Driscoll from The Goodfish Company shared their case study with us. Problem: We need to defrost fish from frozen blocks at -15°C as quickly as possible without the product temperature exceeding +4°C at any point in the defrost cycle. We need to defrost up to 1.5 tonnes per defrost cycle. 3 trolleys, 12 trays per trolley 6 x 6.81 kg blocks per tray. “Our defroster has run reliably since March 2018. Lamonde provided the Weintek HMI, Haiwell PLC, along with associated expansion digital & analogue modules and 24vdc power supplies.” Both the Haiwell PLC & Weintek HMI come with Continue reading Case Study: Defrosting and Temperature Control in Food Production

I went back to college and took City & Guilds for electronics and never looked back. I lectured at Northampton College for a year Continue reading Case Study: DLE Engineering Ltd

Case study: Welland Medical Machine Data Capture

“We are very happy with the service from Lamonde and would recommend using this method of moving data. “ Welland Medical’s Story:We were looking for a method to move data from various production lines into our MySQL server. This would feed a front-end program and provide live OEE type data on large screens on the shop floor, but our machines have many different brands of PLCs fitted. We explored our options and received some quite expensive quotes. Duncan at Lamonde advised that we use Weintek’s cMT-SVR-100. We found this easy to use and can extract data from the majority of Continue reading Case study: Welland Medical Machine Data Capture
