Promtek to Launch Innovative Cloud Process Control Solution at PPMA Show

Automation specialist Promtek Ltd will showcase its pioneering new in-the-cloud process control solutions for intelligent weighment management, recipe handling and production monitoring on stand H52 at this year’s PPMA Show (26-28 September 2023, NEC Birmingham).

Promtek will demonstrate the company’s Condor CloudTM alongside the MicroManTM control system. Together they provide a complete strategic overview of every aspect of production, including ingredient reformulations, equipment utilization, climate impact and energy costs, demonstrated using Promtek’s miniature railway and MicroMan hand-weighing game.

As a cloud-based alternative, Condor Cloud offers the same IT/OT integration for ingredient and recipe handling as its native version without the need for expensive IT infrastructure, making it ideal for fast-growing SME manufacturers with a weighing process. With no onsite servers or network requirements, the browser-based Condor Cloud will help grow a business, reduce costs, and optimize production facilities. 

Promtek’s peerless all-in-one platform uses predefined algorithms to calculate energy efficiency accurately, bringing enterprise-level manufacturing systems to smaller-scale facilities. Condor provides access across the organization to be stored centrally, it creates customized batch and production reports with critical information by connecting to systems such as process control, ERP or PLC/SCADA.

Condor’s time-in-motion capabilities provide systematic observation, analysis and measurement of each step in the production process, establishing a standardized time for each, improving performance and increasing productivity. By analyzing the data in Condor from each connected motor and input, the MES can trim down production waste and reduce energy usage by fine-tuning individual equipment settings – significantly lessening the amount of kWh/t.

The platform is always running the latest software version, as the maintenance and administration for a Condor server, including updates and security patching, is handled remotely by Promtek engineers – tapping a business into Promtek’s exceptional customer service and aftercare offerings.

MicroMan, a portable version of Promtek’s signature platform StoraWeighTM, collates all production information using its systems and graphics integration suite to generate bespoke production control and support. Businesses can use the data to create customer-specific trusted records of weights and measurements of ingredients and materials, manage recipe control, improve ingredient traceability, prevent cross-contamination and assist with order scheduling.

Promtek’s Marketing Manager, Lani Scholtz, explained: “Promtek is thrilled to be at PPMA for the first time – we love meeting new people from across different industries.
