Industrial Intelligence: Brick Manufacturing

While the technologies to support manufacturing and production lines are advancing, some of the products designed and created with innovation are still low-tech – conventional, brick and mortar items – literally.

Brick manufacturing facilities and production lines employ a range of machinery, devices and technologies to generate a quality final product. With every step that’s processed in brick manufacturing production lines, another step is triggered, following a sequential, logical and coded workflow. This may include raw material size reduction, forming and cutting, coating and glazing, firing and cooling, storage and more. The range of machinery, parts and devices can come from a diverse range of vendors, often demanding various vendor systems and technologies. Plus, managing and monitoring the facility requires careful supervision, staff compliance with rules and regulations, and consumes energy, with some sites also being secured with camera and alarm systems. The demand for a SCADA platform for monitoring, automating and controlling production lines is growing, and so too is the need to understand operations in facilities – from staff productivity and engagement with technologies, to technical issues impeding on uptime, throughput rates and overall business performance.

How it Works: PulseTM SCADA for Brick Production Lines, And the Insights That Deliver Growth

Business continuity and growth for the brick manufacturing vertical depend heavily on understanding performance of staff, machinery, and technology, while specifically zoning in on and evaluating factors like technical issues decreasing uptime. Prevention is the name of the game, as facilities are always focused on increasing productivity levels and product quality by reducing accidents, technical issues, and leveraging control and safety of the production line.
