AUTOMATISIERUNG – "All systems go" for Industry 4.0

Continuously increasing requirements in the quality of products and production equipment, as well as the need to make production sequences as efficient as possible, mean that new functions and the latest technologies must be continually implemented.

For this reason a great emphasis is currently being placed on process automation, supervision and quality assurance, plus the coordination of material flow with upstream and downstream production processes.

Together with our customers, EBNER has developed intelligent, compact systems that are effective, easily expandable and built from components that already have a proven track record for their performance and reliability.


Engineering, manufacturing and quality control

From day one, EBNER has equipped its heat treatment facilities with high-quality control systems produced in-house. That is why we have considerable experience in power engineering, electronics, data processing and process control systems.

The EBNER-developed automation range includes complete power distribution systems and control centers plus process control systems, visualization systems, software, mathematical models and documentation.

VISUAL FURNACES®; THE Process Control System

VISUAL FURNACES® has been developed by EBNER based on Microsoft.NET Framework, and is implemented using C#.

In addition to standardized visualization systems, VISUAL FURNACES® also delivers powerful optimization tools for the widest range of applications.

On the basis of the standardized OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) reference data system, downtimes are systematically recorded, assessed and used for calculating efficiency

Efficiency as key indicator for industrial furnace facilities

WEBperfect - worldwide access to production data

  • Access to current production data
  • Archive data analysis

INFOperfect - continuously informed via SMS/text or email

  • Selected facility information such as important alarm messages or process events

PROCESSperfect – statistical process control

  • Early detection of negative influences on the process sequence
  • Stable processes for consistent product quality
  • Key product-related indicators are recorded, making them available for further evaluation
