The Challenge

This industry leader in aerospace component manufacturing had a fully manual process for temperature control of their furnaces used for aircraft disc brake fabrication. Thus requiring 24 hours, in-person maintenance; while providing low process visibility and insight. These constraints reduced design optimization capabilities.

Solubit’s Solution

Solubit’s solution was a SCADA (Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition) system that interfaced with plant control and monitor systems to maintain and log distributed plant processes in aircraft disc brake fabrication.

The SCADA system centralized the logging of process data. Such as infrared pyrometer, process temperature, and gas composition. Solubit’s OPC/DCOM, client/server architecture monitors the production of thermal systems, and control of batch ovens.
