GTH Teams with Honeywell to Help Forging Company Meet Aerospace Requirements
The project at Schlosser Forge was driven by new quality specifications provided by their aerospace customers. They needed to Install and integrate an advanced control system with communication, reliable front end software, redundant recording, and custom reporting. The critical production schedule along with the high cost of the product and strict recording requirements presented a triple threat. Due to consistent failures with the antiquated software/logging system, Schlosser required a solution with greater reliability and availability of data.

The Challenge
To meet these needs, the George T. Hall Company utilized the Honeywell HC900 Hybrid Controller PLC with touch screen HMI for local and redundant control. We also implemented Honeywell’s Experian SCADA software on the front end to perform batch control, custom reporting, and quality assurance. Honeywell SX paperless recorders were also installed in each panel to act as redundant recording in case of a SCADA shutdown.

The Solution

In the end, George T. Hall Company successfully implemented a state of the art system that met the needs of Schlosser and their clients own.

Benefits include:
  • The ability to control from the front end software or directly from the HMI
  • Redundancy with local HMI and SCADA control
  • Complete control and logging even in the event of a front end failure
  • Automatic and custom reporting features
