Automation & digitization

Smart production in tune with the latest technology

Automation brings machines to life. Solutions from Rychiger digitize your production for seamless integration into your overall operations.

Our automation solutions enable you to continually monitor the performance of your processing plants for healthcare and food&beverage products. We customize the software, hardware and vision systems to suit your specific requirements, ensuring that your digitized production facilities are up to date with the latest technologies. Do you wish to enhance your productivity with advanced automation technology? We are highly experienced in this field and cooperate closely with renowned technology partners such as Allen Bradley and Siemens. This enables us to devise solutions for even the most complex production and checking procedures.

Software: Matching your plans

In modern smart factories, machines no longer work in isolation, but communicate with each other, exchange data with master systems and support remote access. For many of these functionalities, software is the key.

Systems with up to 100 servo axes are part and parcel of our day-to-day job.

We already have a number of templates ready for integration of your machines into Allen Bradley and Siemens systems, so that your project can be implemented within a very short time. The well-structured program layout makes maintenance and upgrading extremely easy.

HMI: Intuition meets touch

Our human machine interface (HMI) with touch screen can be configured for any type of production machine and task, be it for coffee capsules or gel cards for in-vitro diagnostics. Its logic structure makes sure that humans and machines understand each other. Should there be a problem in the process, the Rychiger HMI will guide the operator quickly and intuitively to the cause of the fault and propose troubleshooting actions. Our user interfaces are customized to reflect the machine layout and functionalities. For complex systems, we offer multi-panel and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) solutions.

Hardware: Ready for automation

Rugged hardware is one of the cornerstones of optimized automation. Our experts assist you in finding components that suit your specific needs and QA requirements. In this process, they take into account risk assessments according to ISO EN DIN 12100, evaluate the safety functions according to EN 13849-1, check EU Declarations of Conformity and assess compliance with other rules and regulations.

Complete control with turnkey solution

Would you like to bundle several machine control functions in a single system? We offer turnkey solutions that allow for the seamless integration of our machine control systems into your overall plant control. All relevant data is thereby forwarded to a master system such as SCADA, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or MES (Manufacturing Execution System). As a result, production batch figures, processing parameters, recipes and user management as well as serialization are accessible to you at any time through a single user interface.
