PC Control – April 2021:
The current issue of PC Control – The New Automation Technology Magazine reports on the production of a new generation of radio-controlled water meters from Lorenz GmbH & Co. KG, which consistently focuses on an Industry 4.0-compliant concept. ITQ and Software Factory, both companies of the Stetter Group, supported the implementation. By using Beckhoff’s latest technology TwinCAT 3 and in particular the new TwinCAT HMI, the company provided the appropriate open control technology and visualization.
Short abstract: “To implement the Industrie 4.0 concept, Lorenz relied on experienced partners: ITQ GmbH and Software Factory GmbH, both located in Garching, Germany, and automation specialist Beckhoff. […] ITQ developed the entire concept for Lorenz’s production of digital radio water meters. In addition to consulting and development services, says Markus Lanker, senior consultant at ITQ, this included the layout, installation, commissioning, operator training, testing and simulation of the production system as well as the coordination of participating service providers and the overall project management.”
