The automation systems integrated in Cabycal's painting facilities are designed to specifically meet the production needs of each client. For this, the most advanced technology and industrial automation and communication equipment are used, and the standards developed by the company are introduced and updated in each program, tested and verified successfully in all painting facilities, which allows to ensure correct operation From the first moment.The automation of painting facilities offered by Cabycal includes:

  • Industry 4.0 and traceability solutionsWith the automation of painting facilities, more and more companies take advantage of the intensive use of the Internet and new technologies for the continuous improvement of their production process. The goal is to develop smarter and more environmentally friendly factories and with much better linked production lines. As an example of the use of new technologies, the use of IO-Link devices stands out, which allow the concentration of sensor signals in a single remote module, as well as the operating status and possible defects. From here, large volumes of information are obtained to later be treated appropriately for the benefit of the painting installation and therefore the production process. Another example of the use of new technologies in painting facilities is the use of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets), to replicate the scada systems and user interfaces used in the painting line to monitor and establish control from any location. With regard to traceability, the solutions offered by Cabycal range from the storage of process and production data in external memories, through communication within the same installation with higher-order systems of the client-OPC server type and reaching the transfer of large volumes of information between facilities and remote servers.
  • Remote access for technical assistance.It streamlines the process of supervision, diagnosis, decision-making and actions to be implemented in the event of any incident that the paint installation has. In addition, it saves travel expenses and management of procedures and permits to access the client's plant. The automation of surface treatment and painting facilities allows continuous and exhaustive monitoring of all the elements connected in the subnetwork, helping maintenance and production departments to carry out the preventive and corrective work necessary to guarantee productivity . In addition, whenever required and authorized by the client, access is complete up to the operator panels and SCADA in a remote manner, allowing remote training of the characteristics that can be updated and the refreshment of necessary knowledge. To achieve this, Cabycal makes use of M2M remote access technologies with X.509 certification and AES encryption, which provides a reliable, secure and easy-to-implement solution, offering high scalability to adapt to future needs. With the use of this type of technology, the integrity of the data and the independence of the hardware elements with the outside are always prioritized. These types of solutions integrate, in addition to generic communication protocols to be able to access any equipment on the market, specific protocols from the main manufacturers.
  • Equipment tested and verified in advance. All the automation equipment implemented in the painting facilities are previously tested at Cabycal, to increase the reliability and safety of the entire line and reduce costs. This speeds up the start-up at the customer's facilities, since tests have previously been carried out at Cabycal with the presence of technicians from the different brands involved. This way of working guarantees the correct synchronization of hardware equipment with its associated software and communication between different firms in the same project.

Cabycal works with the leading brands in the automation industry such as Allen Bradley, Omron and Siemens, among others, either for the needs of the paint facility itself or for customer requirements.
